Falls Church, VA. (May 11, 2020)-- The American Industrial Hygiene Association® is pleased to announce the companies sponsoring the virtual American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo (AIHce EXP), which will take place June 1–3.

This year’s sponsors, representing a variety of industries, will have the unique opportunity to reach professionals from every sector of industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety via this exclusively virtual event.

The 2020 Virtual AIHce EXP sponsors include:

Dräger, a trailblazer in the fields of medical and safety technology which will sponsor a Lunch and Learn Session on Tuesday, June 2.

DuPont Personal Protection, dedicated to offering superior personal protective equipment, will sponsor a Lunch and Learn Session on Monday, June 1.

Industrial Scientific, a worldwide leader in gas detection which will sponsor a Lunch and Learn Session on Wednesday, June 3.

SGS Galson, a leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, will sponsor the Opening General Session on Monday, June 1.

AIHce EXP 2020 was originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, but following the release of health and safety guidance regarding COVID-19 from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other health and safety professionals, AIHA and its Board of Directors made the decision to convert the conference to a virtual format.

This year, 2020 AIHce EXP virtual attendees can earn up to 20 credit hours to maintain their credentials. The virtual conference’s schedule will mirror the live schedule and offer five concurrent sessions from which participants may choose. Furthermore, the new virtual program will include sessions related to pandemics and COVID-19, providing current, immediately implementable education. AIHce EXP 2020 will also include a virtual Expo Hall, Learning Pavilion, and Fun Run.
