“We are so grateful for the exhibitors and members who went over and above to make sure they attended this year’s event,” said John Barrett, ISSA executive director. “Our hearts truly go out to those members who wanted to be there but could not due to the historic weather events the country has endured. ISSA remains committed to doing everything we can to support our members in areas affected by the recent hurricanes. Even amid these challenges, the industry came together to not only support each other, but also to discover industry innovation and advances, participate in cutting-edge education, and join in unprecedented networking opportunities.”
