Park Ridge, IL – The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has opened registration for its signature safety event. The Safety 2023 Professional Development Conference and Exposition will be held in person June 5-7 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.
More than any other professional event, Safety 2023 will connect workplace safety and health professionals to new ideas and each other. It offers the richest networking experience in the industry while highlighting best practices, industry trends and the latest product innovations. More than 200 continuing education sessions will provide practical information that safety professionals can immediately put to use at their organizations.
“As always, our conference and expo will be a dynamic learning and networking experience that supports our mission to help protect workers in every industry worldwide,” said ASSP President Christine Sullivan, CSP, ARM. “It’s a place to find real solutions to occupational safety and health challenges, especially now when environments can quickly shift. We’re excited about what we have in store for attendees.”
Thousands of safety and health professionals look to ASSP’s annual conference – now in its 62nd year – to grow their professional development and meet experts who can help them advance their careers and elevate safety at their companies. Popular general and plenary sessions will aim to inspire, entertain and inform all attendees. The conference will not include an online component this year.
As a focal point of the event, the expo will feature approximately 500 vendor booths showcasing innovative safety solutions that can help organizations reduce injuries, illnesses and fatalities.
“Our expo is so illuminating, engaging and informative that we get some safety and health professionals coming only for that,” Sullivan said. “Many exhibitors bring their product developers and present meaningful learning opportunities on the expo floor.”
The safety and health of everyone at the convention center remains a priority. Under ASSP’s on-site safety plan, attendees are strongly encouraged to stay current with their COVID-19 vaccinations and applicable boosters. Face coverings and proof of vaccination are not required. ASSP continues to track public health guidance.
Safety professionals can earn 1.5 continuing education units (CEUs) for career advancement. Register online to get the discounted early rate through March 16. Groups from the same company can save on the entire conference by contacting ASSP’s Nancy O’Toole at 847.768.3466 or email@example.com. ASSP is also offering an expo-only pass for the third straight year.
“If your job involves the safety and health of your organization, Safety 2023 is the place to gain critical insights and knowledge to advance your work environment,” said Stephanie Gurnari, CSP, chair of ASSP’s Professional Development Conference Planning Committee. “It’s a comprehensive experience that provides significant value for occupational safety and health professionals at every level of experience.”
The convention center is along the banks of the famous San Antonio River Walk, which includes 15 miles of restaurants, shops and museums. San Antonio is an international culinary destination and last hosted ASSP’s conference in 2018 when the Society launched its new name and brand. The historic downtown area is also home to the Alamo, the Spanish mission and fortress compound founded in the 18th century.
