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™ 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 ErgoExpo.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
