June 14, 2011 — Officials of the 100-year-old American Society of
Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) 2011 Exposition announced that the Chicago
exposition, opened Sunday, is a record breaker. Held in conjunction
with ASSE’s Professional Development Conference (PDC) being held June
12-15 at the Chicago McCormick Place Convention Center, the expo
features close to 500 exhibitors and sold 75,000 square feet. It is
ASSE’s largest expo ever in its 100 year history.  The 2011 expo
exceeded last year’s record breaking numbers in Baltimore which had
just over 400 exhibitors who reserved 62,000 square feet in display
space.

Exhibitors range from large corporations to nonprofit organizations and
colleges, showcasing cutting edge safety technology, information, safety
and health products and available programs and classes for interested
professionals. Many organizations feature interactive displays and
encourage visitors to stop and watch demonstrations of how the newest
safety products work to protect people, property and the environment.
