The National Safety Council says due to continuing concerns about COVID-19, its annual flagship conference will be a fully virtual event in March 2021.
The exact dates for the virtual conference will be announced in the coming weeks.
The NSC Congress & Expo had been scheduled for October 2020 in Indianapolis, and then was postponed until March in Houston.
“Our stakeholders all expect an excellent experience and most important, they expect to be safe,” said NSC CEO Lorraine Martin. “By moving our Congress & Expo fully online to a virtual platform, we can both ensure a safe and comfortable event for everyone while continuing to deliver the world-class safety event everyone looks forward to,” Martin said.
This is only the second time the NSC hasn’t held its annual Congress since 1912. The event was also postponed in 1945 in the aftermath of World War II.
