2020 National Water Safety Conference goes online
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Drowning Prevention Alliance has transitioned the 2020 National Water Safety Conference to an online delivery format. The conference will be held from April 6 to April 9, 2020, and registered virtual attendees will have access to more than 40 online recordings and multiple live sessions. Keynote and featured speakers, live sessions, educational training, and live question-and-answer sessions will be available via computer, tablet, or smartphone and attendees can also interact with other dedicated water safety advocates and professionals via mobile app, private Facebook networking groups and other interactive networking events during the conference. A virtual Exhibit Hall will encourage networking opportunities with water safety suppliers.
This virtual experience is ideal for any water safety advocate, aquatics professional, industry executive, or business owners, who want to better understand the latest drowning prevention and water safety tactics given by the leading experts in the field.
The National Water Safety Conference Online provides full online access to all sessions that would have been in-person at the physical conference. The videos can be played repeatedly and PDFs of the presentations will be available as slide decks. In addition, access to a private and exclusive networking group allows attendees to network and ask questions. Session recordings will be posted daily and attendees will have access to all the sessions for three months after the conference.
For those who have already registered for the National Water Safety Conference, the virtual conference will take place on the same dates as the in-person conference. Registration is still open and the price for the virtual conference has been adjusted the $399 ($100 savings versus the in-person full conference rate).
The Code Council is an exhibitor and sponsor of this year’s event.
