If you were considering exhibiting at the 2019 Western Conference on Safety, you will be disappointed to know that the show has SOLD OUT IN RECORD TIME!! Last year our final booth sold on February 13th, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you missed this opportunity. You can always call me at (604)233-1842 to get put on a wait list. And if you want to get your name in front of 850+ safety people, you might want to consider Spotlight Sponsorship.

Happy New Year! The printed program should be hitting your desk next week, and if you don’t see it, don’t worry! We’re happy to snail mail you one (or one for each committee member!)-just drop us a line to let us know you’d like one (or some!) Of course, you can always head on over to the program page to see what topics will be presented and who will be presenting them.

Welcome to the 2019 Western Conference on Safety website. Here you can read about the great lineup of sessions and post-conference courses, review the conference safety tradeshow and its exhibitors, take advantage of the fabulous special “conference attendee only” low guest room rates at the Hyatt Regency host hotel, plus much much more. Over the next 2-3 weeks we will be adding the link to the on-line registration form and another one to the a downloadable conference registration form (for those of you who prefer to fill out a form rather than registering on-line) plus a downloadable copy of the print program. We hope to have all of this in place before the Christmas break. In the meantime if you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us anytime.
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).
