SSPC Annual Conference Continues to Grow

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

SSPC held our annual meeting and trade show this past January 15th-18th in New Orleans, LA and our members came out in force to experience the big easy. By the end of the week, we had over 2,460 registered attendees and 145 exhibiting companies purchasing 283 booth spaces. This comes out to a 12 percent increase in attendance and a 15 percent increase in booth sales from 2017.

2018 brought with it new and improved methods for our attendees to engage and interact with each other, including a fitness Step It Up Challenge, a LEGO building station and a brand new conference app. The new mobile app more than tripled mobile engagement from recent years and allowed everyone in attendance access to complete conference information right at their fingertips.

The technical proceedings were moved to an online platform this year in an effort to make them as accessible as possible to all of our members and industry colleagues. If you have not yet visited our technical library, please do so by clicking here.
