AIHce 2012 Fashionably Late

The June 16-21 event in Indianapolis takes place two weeks later ASSE's June 3-6 conference in Denver.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- With their 2011 AIHce conference hailed as a success, both in attendees' satisfaction and in overall attendance, the American Industrial Hygiene Association and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists have more time than usual to craft an even better follow-up. Their co-sponsored 2012 AIHce will take place unusually late -- June 16-21 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, Ind.

Unlike the Oregon Convention Center used this year, the Indianapolis convention center is surrounded by more than 20 hotels located within a few blocks. But Portland's had the virtue of being located on a light rail line stretching from downtown to the airport, making it easy and inexpensive for those arriving by air.

The American Society of Safety Engineers' 2012 annual conference takes place two weeks before the 2012 AIHce, which is highly unusual. ASSE's Safety 2012 is set for June 3-6 in Denver. Asked why the standard order of trade shows was switched, AIHA Executive Director Peter J. O'Neil, CAE, and an AIHA board member said they belatedly realized their 2012 show and ASSE's had been planned for the same dates. When ASSE declined to move its show, AIHA and ACGIH had to move theirs.

Aug. 15 is the deadline for AIHce 2012 Professional Development Course proposals, and podium and paper abstracts are due by Sept. 30. For suggested topics and other information about the conference and expo, visit www.AIHce2012.org.
