National Safety Conference Coincides with the Annual WorldSafe Dinner & Gala
(2017) New this year, the SafeAmerica Foundation has partnered with Miller Ingenuity to host a national safety conference at the Omni-CNN Center this Oct. 27-28, 2017.
The safety conference will host experts from the rail industry, law enforcement, and government whose role it is to keep North Americans safe from accidents, disasters, gun violence, human trafficking, gangs, sports injuries and much more. It will be a star-studded event, with a kickoff at Atlanta's hottest new venue, the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta. The event will close with our annual WorldSafe Fundraising Dinner and Gala at the Omni Hotel - CNN Center.
The WorldSafe Dinner & Gala annually celebrates leaders in the field of safety. We honor individuals who have made an impact in their communities, or organizations that have made major strides in making people's lives safer and better.
The gala is a chance for award winners to not only be recognized, but also to spread their message and vision to inspire others.
