IICRC Technical Conference

The IICRC will hold its third-annual 2018 Technical Conference Sept. 27-28, at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The theme for this year’s conference will be ‘Trauma and Crime Scene Cleanup.’

Featuring a suite of expert speakers in the field of trauma and crime scene cleanup industry, the conference will offer attendees an inside look at what it takes to work in this niche field.

It will also provide an excellent networking and learning opportunity for those looking to diversify into and get involved with another area cleaning and restoration.

Attendees will hear directly from first responders who will discuss their experiences responding to trauma, crime scene and mass-casualty events, as well as how we as an industry can make the process of forensics and all the steps that follow as smooth as possible.

For more information on early-bird registration, sponsorship opportunities and updated agenda and speaker information, stay tuned to www.iicrc.org.
