Ground Breaking New Products Win the Attendees' Choice Awards
NEW YORK, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The 13th Annual National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (NECE) at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nov. 27 - 30 was the largest annual gathering of ergonomics decision makers and ergonomics product sellers held in the U.S. with over 1,600 attendees representing all of the 50 states and a dozen foreign countries.
Attendees from AIG, Chevron, FedEx, GE, GM, Johnson & Johnson, Kaiser Permanente, Lockheed Martin, Starbucks, Wells Fargo and hundreds of other companies came to the NECE looking for new ways to increase workplace safety, productivity, and the bottom line in offices, call centers, manufacturing facilities, and healthcare environments. Sue Fox, Project Manager/Facilities for Starbucks Coffee Co. told Continental Exhibitions, Inc., owners/producers of the NECE that, "I leave the NECE feeling like I can change the world!" Those sentiments were echoed by other participants over the four days of the conference as they heard success stories from presenters hailing from American Express, Chevron, CVS, General Mills, HP, the Mayo Clinic, Toyota, Verizon, and many more.
"Attendees told us that the educational content, along with what is clearly the largest ergonomics Exposition in the nation keeps them coming back year after year" commented Walter Charnizon, President of Continental Exhibitions, Inc. "Seeing nearly all exhibitors renew their exhibit space, and new companies already joining the 2008 Expo, we anticipate next year's NECE to continue our tradition of continued growth and variety!" further remarked Charnizon. Just days after the show, 90% of exhibitors and counting had already renewed, marking the fourth year in a row that 90% or more of exhibitors renewed immediately.
This year's show also featured the 6th Annual NECE Attendees' Choice Awards, with the audience voting for the new products they felt are most likely to increase productivity and profitability, while improving workplace health and safety. The winners of the 2007 NECE Attendees' Choice Awards were (in alphabetical order): the AdjusTable(R) by Accuposture Systems, Ltd. a first-time exhibitor; the Fitwork(TM) Walkstation by Details a Steelcase Co.; Trackbar by Euro Office Americas; and the Ntune Seating System(TM) by Neutral Posture, Inc.
