A message from Founders and Chairmen, Jim McConnaughhay & Steve Rissman:
For the year 2021, the Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference and the Annual Safety and Health Conference will move its scheduled dates from mid-August 2021 to December 12-15, 2021. Though we are still working out the final details, we are very excited about the prospect of an in person conference at the Orlando World Center Marriott in December 2021. Postponing the 2020 Convention was the only right decision to make in recognizing health and safety concerns from the pandemic – but it was terribly disappointing! Many told us that August was just not the same without our comprehensive excellent program, the networking, the sponsors and exhibitors and even the pure fun of having the convention in Orlando. We missed it too.
There are several distinct benefits of moving the convention from August to December 2021 – we will officially be out of hurricane season! Secondly, with the convention taking place in December, it opens up outside fresh air marketing opportunities at the Marriott that are just too difficult in the Florida August heat. Last, and most importantly, there are headlines of multiple treatments and a vaccine from multiple companies pertaining to COVID-19 coming to market by later in 2020 or the first quarter of 2021. Moving the convention back to December 2021 is done with the hope that our attendees can feel safer about travel and the significant safety precautions implemented by the Marriott.
Please keep checking back on our website for the most up to date details, new sponsorship opportunities, and exhibitor/registration information. We hope you are as excited as we are about the prospect of resuming an in person Convention in Orlando.
