The VPPPA Expo, held in conjunction with Safety+ (formerly called the 33rd Annual National VPPPA Safety & Health Conference), is the only exhibit show in the country that is tailor-made for VPP sites and sites striving for VPP status. Attracting some of the most innovative manufacturers of safety, health and environmental products and services, the VPPPA Expo offers event attendees direct access to the leaders in these fields. As an integral part of the association’s annual national symposium, the VPPPA Expo 2017 is expecting to attract more than 250 exhibiting companies.
VPPPA exhibitors aren't just vendors; they are an important part of the association's network. Many of these companies show their support through VPPPA Affiliate membership; discounts on products and services for our members; conference sponsorships and donations; advertising; as well as returning to the VPPPA Expo year after year, some since the association's incorporation.
~77% of national event attendees purchased, or planned to purchase, products and/or services from 2016 exhibitors~
