The Lifesavers Conference is offered at a value that cannot be matched by any other highway safety conference!

The Lifesavers Conference brings together a unique combination of public health and safety professionals, researchers, volunteers, and practitioners who are committed to sharing best practices, research, and policy initiatives that are proven to work. You can’t get the kind of information that is conveyed at this conference anywhere else at this value. There is no professional training that provides the same kind of information that compares with the Lifesavers Conference.

What is Lifesavers?(back to top)

Celebrating 34 Years of Delivering Solutions to Today’s Critical Highway Safety Problems

Lifesavers is the premier national highway safety meeting in the United States dedicated to reducing the tragic toll of deaths and injuries on our nation’s roadways. Drawing over 1,900 participants in 2015, Lifesavers continues to be the essential conference since its start in 1982. Each year, Lifesavers provides a forum for the presentation of proven countermeasures and initiatives that address today’s critical highway safety problems.

Lifesavers is a non-profit organization with no single sponsor and relies on the involvement of diverse private and public groups who share the common goal of improving highway safety.

Speaker Proposals

The Lifesavers Conference Planning Committee (LPC) is now accepting speaker proposals for the 2016 Conference which will be held April 3-5 in Long Beach, California. Proposals must be submitted via Lifesavers’ online system and will be accepted until September 15, 2015. All speaker proposals are carefully reviewed for their applicability to the Lifesavers Conference audience with a particular focus on “research to practice” and "vigorously evaluated programs." Researchers, academicians, students, and practitioners are also welcome to submit a poster in lieu of or in addition to a speaker proposal; however, the same review process applies. Questions? Call 703-922-7944 or email Lofgren@meetingsmgmt.com.

Also please note that a limited number of scholarships are available to help speakers from non-profits, government agencies and advocacy groups offset a portion of their travel/conference expenses. So please don’t let the cost of attending the Lifesavers Conference deter you from submitting a proposal for you and/or a colleague to speak in Long Beach.

CLICK HERE to submit your speaker proposal. (Note:  the first time you enter the submission system, you must register your name for the database – this needs to be done only once.)

Poster Submissions

If you believe your project has merit but its potential impact has yet to be evaluated, you may wish to submit an application to display a Poster, which is a popular event in the exhibit hall. The posters are graphic displays of a program or other activity. Visit the Posters page for more information.

Ten Great Reasons to Attend Lifesavers (back to top)

1. Geared for all.  Whether you’re a state or local highway safety official, police officer or first responder, private or non-profit program provider, student or academician, Lifesavers’ comprehensive program is for you.

2. Affordable.  Sponsorships, off-season scheduling, government-rate rooms, and an early-bird registration fee mean attendance won’t bust your budget.

3. Proven programs.  The 80+ workshop agenda includes cutting-edge programs that are proven to work through research and/or evaluation.

All the workshops I attended were excellent – the speakers were professional and well prepared.

4. Hot topics.  From distracted motorists and pedestrians to new technologies, drugged driving, driverless vehicles, and more Lifesavers will focus on the topics impacting roadway safety today. 

5. Knowledgeable, engaging speakers. Each workshop features leading experts and practitioners in traffic safety who are selected not only because they’re knowledgeable, but skilled in engaging and energizing an audience.

Great evidence-based practices presented. I look forward to applying this knowledge within my organization.

6. National leaders. The nation’s top safety professionals from NSC, GHSA, SKW, IIHS, MADD, AAA, NDAA, NHTSA, NTSB and other federal agencies, and the auto and insurance industries will be attending.

7. Inside information.  What’s trending in highway safety and what will the next highway reauthorization bill look like? Get the scoop from knowledgeable insiders.

8. Tremendous networking.  You’ll have numerous opportunities for formal and informal peer exchange, plus one-on-one discussion with more than 1,800 U.S. and international safety professionals.

Networking was a beneficial aspect of the conference – I was able to connect with a number of individuals and groups that will help me with my traffic safety goals.

9. State-of-the-art products.  More than 100 companies, organizations and government agencies exhibit their latest products, services, programs, and/or publications – some only at Lifesavers!

“The exhibit hall vendors’ commitment to developing and showcasing great products was evident and appreciated.”

10. Friendly people.  From the exhibitors and speakers to volunteers and attendees, everyone feels welcome, prompting participants to return year after year.
