The ISEA Annual Meeting is where safety equipment leaders come together to connect with peers, hear the latest shifting regulatory, end-user and macro trends, and pick up new ideas to help grow their businesses.

At the Annual Meeting, you’ll experience:


Interactive Product Group Sessions

Engage with your peers to discuss opportunities to create and innovate standards to keep workers safe.  The Annual Meeting is where our product groups and committees meet to accomplish the essential work of the association – developing standards, formulating policy positions, and planning for the future.


Rich Networking Opportunities

Between the popular Awards Reception & Dinner, New Member Reception, and more, the Annual Meeting is full of can’t-miss opportunities to connect with your peers. 


High Value General Sessions

Hear the latest safety trends straight from end-users. Get a deeper understanding of shifts in the regulatory and political landscape and how to capitalize on them to drive growth. It’s all at the ISEA Annual Meeting.
