25th Annual NCSO Professional Development Conference – Wrap up & Photos

NCSO-2018Last month saw your ACSA hold our 25th Annual NCSO Professional Development Conference in Edmonton. The milestone event was a great success, with 400 delegates, 20 speakers, 23 exhibitors in the tradeshow and 6 first time sponsors.

Preliminary results from our evaluation surveys show that the combined overall rating for all the presentations and the tradeshow exhibitors were:

  • Thursday A.M session: 77% / Thursday P.M session: 65.5%
  • Friday’s Plenary: 61.5%
  • Tradeshow: 91% of exhibitors said they would return again next year

Some of your qualitative feedback included the following comments:

“Very useful. I have implemented some of the techniques today!”

“I loved that the booths [tradeshow] were located in the hall, so that when the guests leave the conferences, they are at our booths right away. The lunch was also where the booths were, which made the participants stick around!”

“All Vendors were on equal ground & footing. No one could dominate with a massive display/booth at the expense of others. All vendors were also pertinent to the Safety Professional sector.”

Save the Date! Next year’s date and location has been confirmed. The 2018 NCSO Conference will be held at the Calgary Coast Plaza on March 8 & 9, 2018. We hope to see you there.
