AIHA Announces Rebranding of Annual Conference

Phoenix (May 26, 2023)AIHA, the association for scientists and professionals committed to preserving and ensuring occupational and environmental health and safety in the workplace and community, is rebranding its annual conference, previously known as AIHce EXP, as “AIHA CONNECT: The Conference and Expo for OEHS Professionals.” The new brand was unveiled on May 24, 2023, during the final conference under the AIHce EXP name, in Phoenix, Arizona.

AIHA staff developed the new name and brand to reflect the evolution and growth of OEHS and emphasize the conference’s value to OEHS professionals at all career stages. The new name is intended to better inform potential attendees of the conference's purpose, which includes presenting opportunities to network, discover new ideas, and access professional resources.

“As the OEHS profession continues to evolve, our annual conference is becoming increasingly valuable,” said Lawrence Sloan, the CEO of AIHA. “We wanted a name that reflects the connections and dynamic experiences that the conference provides, and one that can sustain the conference for years to come.”

AIHA CONNECT will continue to be the leading event at which OEHS professionals can discover industry trends, state-of-the-art research, and new technologies, as well as foster professional connections. The first conference under the AIHA CONNECT name and brand will be held in Columbus, Ohio, from May 20 to 22, 2024.
