Our educational sessions are led by safety experts who either have worked for utilities/contractors or know this unique industry extensively.
Every conference features a panel discussion on a timely topic or subject that affects utility safety. Not only will you get insight from several utility safety experts, but you’ll also have the opportunity to get answers to your safety questions.
Our expo hall features exhibitors who sell the unique products and services that utilities use to help ensure a safe working environment.
Exhibitors send their safety product gurus to our conference so they can provide answers to your questions about their products and services.
The expo hall offers the unique experience of providing you with the ability to get your hands on the products on display. You can demo the products and literally feel how they may fit into your safety equipment solutions.
Our expo hall features products and services that are utility safety-specific solutions. No other expo provides you with an experience that is exclusively focused on exhibiting solutions that may solve your unique utility safety challenges.
