In its third year in 2019, Actsafe's Event Safety Conference brings together a broad range of stakeholders from festivals, performing arts and live event venues, health and safety organizations, event production suppliers, education providers, service organizations, municipalities, and labour unions to network and learn about event safety from a range of experts in their fields.
In 2018 over 200 delegates attended from across British Columbia, Eastern Canada and the US, and from as far away as the UK.
Taking place March 7-8, 2019 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Burnaby Conference Centre in Burnaby, B.C., the 2019 conference will be jam-packed with informative sessions, 20+ tradeshow exhibitors, live demonstrations in the truss cube on the tradeshow floor, free industry training (scheduled outside of conference dates), and three social evenings (starting the night before the main event)!
Over the two days, take in over 30 90-minute workshops, interactive demonstrations, roundtable sessions, and panel discussions with experts in their fields.
Applications are now open for session proposals, tradeshow exhibitors, and sponsorships.
You won't want to miss it! Early Bird Registration opens September 17!
