Safety 2007 on Track for Record-breaking Trend
According to the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), last year's expo set a new record with exhibitor space sold out for the first time ever in the event's 24 years and square feet sold outpacing its record of 47,500, set in 2005, to a new high of 52,780 square feet.
ASSE hopes to continue this upward trend with a new lineup for Safety 2007 that includes more than 200 educational sessions emphasizing practical material addressing today's key issues and challenges facing safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professionals worldwide. In addition, the conference will feature more than 300 exhibitors, pre- and post-conference seminars, several keynote presentations, technical tours, the executive summit, select sessions in Spanish, key issue roundtables, and networking events.
Christine Sullivan, CSP, ARM, ASSE Conference Planning Committee Chair, said in a recent press release that the 2007 program is the society's strongest ever. "We received more than 500 proposals to speak at the conference, which gave the program selection group several options," she added. "We are also emphasizing in the program the opportunities for attendees to connect with each other and exchange ideas, evidenced by the roundtables to be headed by ASSE Practice Specialty Leaders in their areas of expertise."
An Academic Forum for full-time academicians and members of the ASSE Academics Practice Specialty that will focus on issues important to SH&E professionals who teach, counsel, and work in research will also be held Wed., June 27.
