Future Western Conference on Safety Dates:

April 26 & 27, 2021


The Western Conference on Safety is the largest Occupational Health & Safety Conference in Western Canada. 2020 will be the 25th Annual running of this well known conference. 2020 will feature 2 keynote presentations, 20 conference seminars, 5 post conference courses and 80 safety tradeshow booths. Always one of the most popular occupational safety conferences in Canada in 2019 it sold out more than 2 weeks prior to the conference run dates. The 2020 conference agenda is now set and promises to be the best yet.   What makes it stand out from all the other conferences? Each year the conference steering committee travels across Canada and the USA to find the most interesting, latest and best sessions and best speakers and works hard to bring them to Vancouver. If you only go to one conference in 2020 make it this one!

My first time at the Western Conference on Safety and I can’t wait to come back next year!

How Are Registrations Doing You Ask?

By | Uncategorized, WCS News | No Comments

Amazing that’s how its doing! The trend of lots of people registering early continues. Last year at this point we had 96 people registered (out of the total of 900 available seats) and this year there are already over 210 registered. An amazing growth of over 100%, due in part we think, to the  conference selling out for the last 9 years in a row.  In 2019 it did so over 3 weeks prior to the start date, surprising us but disappointing many would-be attendees. Will this trend continue? Only time will tell but if you want to ensure your seat, you may want to register sooner than later.

Registrations Pouring In!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

WOW, people are registering for the 2020 Western Conference on Safety faster than they ever have before. So far registrations are running more than 100% ahead of last year (when the conference sold out 3 weeks before its start date). It is early in the registration process and there are still lots and lots of seats available but if the current pace of registrations continues we expect the conference to be sold out by the early registration deadline of March 2.  If you are planning on attending we suggest you don’t delay and register as soon as reasonably possible.
