Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - May 16, 2017 - The National Ergonomics Conference & ErgoExpo®, the longest-running, and largest ergonomics conference and expo in North America will be held in a new month and venue for 2017. The ergonomics event will be held August 22 – 25, 2017 at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Experiencing more than 70% growth in the last four years, conference organizers believe the change in dates and venue will allow the event to continue to grow.
ErgoExpo® is the premier event for ergonomics, safety and workforce wellness professionals. This August the conference will have exclusive use of all available conference and expo space at the Paris Las Vegas to accommodate larger sessions and a sold-out exhibitor space in the ErgoExpo®.
“The 2016 ErgoExpo® had a buzzing show floor, leading most exhibitors to immediately renew. Ergotron, Fellowes, Interstuhl, Magline, OM Seating, SiS Ergo and other companies significantly increased their space for this year’s Expo,” said Lenore Higgins, Trade Show and Direct Advertising Manager, ErgoExpo. “2017 exhibitors will also include BodyBilt by ErgoGenesis, Caster Connection, Darcor, Contour Design, Herman Miller, Kinesis, LINAK, PowerPusher, and Workrite Ergonomics.”
Exhibitors also have an opportunity to enter the annual ErgoExpo® Attendees’ Choice Awards (http://www.ergoexpo.com/choice.html), the only program recognizing products offering the best opportunities for advancements in workplace ergonomics, safety and productivity.
This year industry thought leaders from well-known organizations such as Cargill, Chevron, Duke University and Health System, Liberty Mutual, Microsoft and Southern California Edison are scheduled to speak and share their secrets to success.
Dr. Alan Hedge, CPE, Professor of Ergonomics at Cornell University, and ErgoExpo® Conference Chair, has brought together engaging Keynote presenters, including L. Casey Chosewood, MD, Director of the Office of Total Worker Health®, National Institute for Occupational Health (NIOSH); and Lance Perry, PE, CPE, Senior Ergonomist, Risk Engineering at Zurich North America.
“These Keynotes, in conjunction with the conference program, will explore ways ergonomics professionals can adapt workplace design and safety procedures to meet the demands of an ever-evolving workforce and workplace,” Hedge said. “Whether ErgoExpo® attendees are responsible for the employee wellbeing in a traditional office, a warehouse or manufacturing setting, or a state of the art healthcare facility, the conference will provide real-world strategies and proven methods that attendees can implement at their organization.”
Additionally, ErgoExpo® features programming in 5 distinct tracks: Program Management; Office Ergonomics; Material Handling, Tools & Workstation Design; Industrial Ergonomics & Safety; Healthcare Ergonomics, Aging Workforce & Wellness, and will also include workshop offerings, from novice to advanced levels.
