Colleagues, can you believe it is almost that time again? IEHA’s 53rd Annual Conference and Convention, held in conjunction with the world-famous ISSA
Show North America, is just around the corner— November 15–23 in Las Vegas.
IEHA will welcome attendees on Sunday, November 17 at its headquarters: Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino on the famed Las Vegas Strip, across from Caesar’s
Palace and the Paris Hotel. The resort sits on 44 acres and is a short walk to many other hotels and attractions.
Before you check out the convention lineup, visit www.ieha.org for information regarding online registration
and special member packages. By booking your hotel room directly through IEHA, you will receive special pricing and guarantee a place at the center
of IEHA’s activities. Purchasing a Complete Convention Package inside the IEHA room block will also make travel easier, as it includes a bus pass to
and from the Las Vegas Convention Center for one of the biggest trade shows in the cleaning industry, which is sponsored by IEHA’s parent company,
ISSA. The week will be filled with education, networking opportunities, and yes, IEHA fun!
Don’t miss the opportunity to make connections and network with other IEHA members while you participate in educational workshops and events that can advance
your career and improve your skills. Here is a day-by-day guide of what you can expect from this year’s convention:
