2011 ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice Award Winners Announced During Sold Out Expo; Exhibitor Renewal for 2012 Hits 96% and Counting

NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2011 National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (ErgoExpo) held at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas earlier this month was yet again the largest annual gathering of ergonomics decision makers and vendors in the nation.  The event was a huge success, and by the last few hours of the show, the room still buzzing with activity, the vast majority of exhibitors had already renewed and new exhibitors had signed up for 2012. 

"We knew the event was a success when we reached a 96% exhibitor renewal rate just days after the show. Exhibitors were clearly busy from the start until the finish of the event. Many renew prior to arriving in Las Vegas, they know they need to keep ErgoExpo on their show schedule every year, but the rest of them, including fist-time exhibitors and new companies that were just visiting the show have already reserved exhibit space for 2012," remarked Walter Charnizon, President of Continental Exhibitions, Inc., owner/producers of ErgoExpo. 

Attendees from nearly all 50 states and 13 foreign countries including the U.K., Australia, Canada, Mexico, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Brazil were at ErgoExpo.  Attendees represented organizations as diverse as Aetna, Boeing, ConAgra Foods, eBay, Exxon Mobil, Ford, GE, John Deere, Lockheed Martin, Mayo Clinic, NASA, Nissan, Procter & Gamble, Rolls Royce, Sysco, Target, Toyota, US Air Force, Wells Fargo and numerous government agencies and healthcare facilities.  They attended sessions geared toward office, healthcare, industrial and other work environments.  

One highlight of the show was the announcement of the 10th Annual ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice Awards, winners included:  Equipois' X-Ar™ Exoskeletal Arm; Ergotron's WorkFit-A Sit-Stand Desk; Kenson's OysterMouse; Kinesis Corporation's Freestyle 2 Split-Adjustable Keyboard; and Mas Un Limited's Simply Dump It wheelbarrow handles.  This year's Attendees' Choice Awards marked a third win for Equipois and a second win for Kinesis.  Jon Biggs, Director of Sales & Marketing for Kinesis Corporation which received its second ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice Award during the 2011 Expo, noted, "This award means a great deal to us because the people voting are safety and health professionals and educated decision makers. Just like when the original Freestyle won the award 5 years ago, the market experts have decided that we created a superior ergonomic keyboard. We couldn't be more pleased!"  And Eric Golden, President of Equipois commented, "ErgoExpo includes the world's top experts in ergonomics, and has been an invaluable resource for us in understanding our customers' needs since our company's birth.  To be recognized with the Attendees' Choice Award for the third time from this illustrious group is a high honor."   

3M, Darcor Casters and Wheels, Fellowes, Herman Miller, Microsoft, Steelcase, Power Pusher, and nearly every other 2011 exhibitor is already making plans to be in Las Vegas Nov. 28 – 30 for the 2012 ErgoExpo.  And the news coming out of this year's show is that attendees will again be eager to see the best and newest products at next year's Expo with 94% of attendees reporting that their company will be spending the same or more on ergonomics and safety products in 2012.  30% indicated that they already plan on increasing their ergonomics spending in 2012.  The ergonomics community yet again told the industry how important ErgoExpo is to them with 71% of attendees only visiting one trade show during 2012, making it the only place to make contact with these important decision makers.
