New Growth for the Product Stewardship Conference

​By Larry Sloan and Adam Seery

If you’ve attended AIHce in the past three years, you’re probably familiar with the Product Stewardship Conference. Hosted by AIHA’s Product Stewardship Society, the conference has fast become the go-to event for product stewards, bringing together professionals from over a dozen product use areas and throughout the value chain. This year, after outgrowing the space available at AIHce, Product Stewardship 2017 is taking place November 2–4 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina. An exciting program is planned with sessions focused on topics such as extended producer responsibility, global regulations, hazard and risk communication, risk assessment, supply chain/value chain communications, and talent management.

We are pleased to feature several new enhancements that are sure to appeal to attendees. These include:

  • The Exchange—Networking is a key component to the Product Stewardship Conference, so, this year, we’re introducing The Exchange, a central location for attendees to gather, share thoughts, recharge, and visit with participating partners. 
  • Partner Showcase—Attendees will hear from some of our event partners as they present case studies and demonstrations, and discuss the latest innovations in product stewardship.

In addition, you’ll hear from two insightful keynote speakers:

Finally, we’ve added bonus programming to appeal to both young and seasoned product stewardship practitioners:

Pre-conference courses (Wednesday, November 1)

Executive Leadership Workshop (Saturday, November 4)

Product Stewardship 2017 offers a wide variety of education options, not only in the range of topics, but also in learning level and formats. So, whether you’re new to product stewardship or a seasoned professional, you’ll find practical content and solutions to the challenges you face on a day-to-day basis. Take a look at what’s in store. We hope to see you in Tampa!

Larry Sloan is AIHA’s CEO.
