Hundreds Expected to Showcase Products at Safety 2009
Despite the economy, more than 375 leading organizations are scheduled to exhibit at the American Society of Safety Engineers' (ASSE) annual Professional Development Conference (PDC) and Exposition (Safety 2009) in San Antonio from June 28-July 1. ASSE officials said they expect this number to continue to climb in the next few weeks.
"The continued strong showing each year is a testament to the strength of this segment of the safety, health, and environmental industry and the consistent innovation and strong content found in the ASSE Conference," said ASSE President Warren K. Brown, CSP, ARM, CSHM. "As Safety 2009 heads to San Antonio a near-record number of exhibitors have already reserved booth space. At this point we have seen the second most, all-time participating organizations already committed this year as Safety 2009 prepares for another big event in San Antonio."
The 98-year-old ASSE is the largest and oldest safety society, and has more than 32,000 occupational safety, health, and environmental professional members located worldwide. For several years its annual conference has set attendance and exposition records with attendees traveling from throughout the United States and more than 40 countries to the conference.
For the exposition, of the 375 exhibitors, more than 70 are new and will be showcasing their products and services for the first time.
"Having so many new organizations in addition to the industry leaders will offer attendees the breadth and depth of variety of products and services they have come to expect to see annually at this event,” Brown continued. “This helps attendees look into the future of workplace safety at the same time.”
Conference officials will highlight the innovations with a "New Product Showcase" which will debut on the exhibit floor. It will highlight the latest and most advanced products and services in one convenient location. For the current list of exhibitors click here.
