We have shifted our second-largest annual event to a live virtual experience due to the ongoing public safety and health concerns associated with COVID-19, as well as the uncertainties surrounding business travel. SafetyFOCUS 2021 will move from an eight-day in-person conference in Las Vegas to a 10-day online event. The immersive education experience will now be held Feb. 8-12 and 15-19.
Instructors will conduct courses in real time from wherever they are located. Courses will take place from 8 am to 4:30 pm CT each day, providing all the benefits of face-to-face instruction without the travel time and hotel expenses. Attendees simply need a computer with a camera, audio and internet access to participate.
Registration for SafetyFOCUS 2021 will open by the end of October, and you will find details on the SafetyFOCUS website. We appreciate your continued involvement in ASSP educational programs during this challenging time.
We will continue to monitor the latest information from public health authorities and government officials to offer you the highest quality educational resources that meet your evolving needs during the pandemic and beyond.
