Another One for the Record Books

By | Uncategorized, WCS News | No Comments

The 2018 Western Conference on Safety is now over. While we are still compiling the results from the delegate evaluations the buzz was extremely positive. While the conference has now sold out for 6 of the last 7 years, the regular and group registration categories sold out over 3 weeks before the conference itself and that’s a new record. Over 1200 people participated in the conference over the 4 days of conference sessions, safety tradeshow and post conference courses.  Thank you to all the speakers, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and all our wonderful attendees. The 2019 conference runs Monday April 8 and Tuesday April 9, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.  Registrations for the conference will open November 1, 2018 with tradeshow sales opening in early September (date to be announced).

Always professional, thought provoking and top quality conference.
