Registration on for regional annual safety conference in Campbell River

More than delegates expected from across Western Canada

Registration is now on for the region’s biggest safety conference and trade show.

People interested in attending can now sign up online for the Upper Island Safety (UIS) Conference and Trade Show Exhibition.

“We are very excited to launch the website for the 10th annual Upper Island Safety Conference,” says Strathcona Gardens program coordinator Craig Robertson. “The new site will provide seamless registration and assist delegates in finding more details on the program, confirmed speaker biographies and more about the host community of Campbell River.”

It is presented by the Strathcona Regional District and will once again take place May 27 to 29 in Campbell River.

This year marks the 10-year anniversary. The UIS Conference and Trade Show Exhibition features 15 educational sessions, two keynote speakers, three post-conference training sessions and 25 exhibitor booths. More than 200 delegates are expected to attend from throughout Western Canada.

This conference will feature two full days of speakers and presenters with a third day of training seminars. It will take place at the Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex in Campbell River.

New and returning delegates, sponsorship, safety professionals and trade show vendors can now access all the information about the conference easily and more efficiently online. The new website dedicated to the event allows the user to check back for program updates or session details prior to the conference without having to reference a printed guide or continuously navigate a downloaded copy of the guide.

North Vancouver Island’s premier conference on safety will feature a variety of topics for everyone from the most experienced safety professional to new safety committee members.
