For starters, attendees will find a completely revamped educational schedule, featuring more than 60 seminars, hands-on training workshops and networking events focused on the industry’s hottest topics and newest trends. During four days of valuable education, show goers will have more content and format options than ever, allowing for smaller, intimate experiences. In addition to traditional seminar settings, this year’s schedule includes in-depth seminars on hot topics; flash sessions; panel discussions and workshops.

Also new, Tuesday’s lineup of educational sessions includes a featured speaker, Ryan Estis, a top-performing sales professional, leader and consultant, who will present Managing Breakthrough Performance in the New Economy, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., to provide practical insights into the attributes of an effective leader and manager.

The trade show will also feature three keynote speakers, including Rob O’Neill, former U.S. Navy SEAL; Dennis Miller, comedian and political commentator and Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder.

At the ISSA Innovation Showcase, distributors and facility service providers can browse the entries, then vote for their favorites to see who earns the Visitors’ Choice Awards and which one company wins the ISSA Innovation of the Year Award, the competition’s overall top spot.
