ErgoExpo Experiences Attendance Growth; Highest Exhibit Space Renewal
Rate in Show History 
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 --  The 18th
Annual National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (ErgoExpo), the
largest ergonomics event in the nation, announced that the 2012
event, held last month in Las Vegas, was the best attended show since
the onset of the recession over four years ago. Nearly every single
exhibitor has renewed their participation for the 2013 ErgoExpo and
many new companies have also joined the show, which just weeks later
is already larger than the 2012 event.  
"This is a great indicator of an industry poised for accelerated
expansion and continued economic recovery. Those external factors,
combined with the resources and market knowledge of the event's new
owners, LRP Conferences, put ErgoExpo on a dramatic growth curve,"
commented Walter Charnizon, Managing Director, ErgoExpo.  
The 2012 ErgoExpo gave attendees numerous opportunities to
collaborate, network, and share best practices for ergonomics,
safety, and workforce wellness with peers from across the globe.
Professionals from 49 states and 18 foreign countries including
Canada, China, Israel, the Netherlands, and the UK were in Las Vegas
to attend sessions addressing issues in office, healthcare,
industrial, construction, and other work environments, and they
represented: Apple, Boeing, Disneyland, ExxonMobil, FBI, General
Motors, Honeywell, Intel, Liberty Mutual, Northrop Grumman, Oracle,
Procter & Gamble, Shell Oil, Zurich Services, and many others
including government agencies and healthcare facilities.  
"Judging by this year's attendance, organizations have renewed their
commitment to addressing the needs of their workforce. ErgoExpo is
the only place for them to learn about proven ways to keep their
workforce safe, healthy, and productive," said Charnizon. 
One of the highlights of the event was the announcement of the
winners of the 11th Annual ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice Awards.
Attendees voted for the product they believe offered the best
opportunity to increase productivity and profitability, while
improving workplace health and safety. 2012 winners included:  


 
--  Contour Design -- RollerMouse Re:d
--  Focal Upright Furniture -- Focal Locus(TM) Workstation
--  Grand Stands, Inc. -- Slim Easy Lift Dial Tilt Arm with ZIP Board
--  Mousetrapper -- Mousetrapper : Flexible

  
This marked Contour Design's third ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice win, and
Focal Upright Furniture was the only first-time exhibitor to win in
2012.  
3M, Darcor Casters and Wheels, Fellowes, Herman Miller, Microsoft,
Steelcase, Power Pusher, and nearly every other 2012 exhibitor is
already making plans to be in Las Vegas December 4 - 6 for the 2013
