Columbus, OH – The Greater Ohio Showmen’s Association is producing the inaugural Midwest Safety & Operations Conference, Monday, March 2 through Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, OH.
The conference is comprehensive in scope with learning tracks for carnivals, amusement & water parks and concessionaires.
Two days of NARRSO certified training will be offered with testing on day three. A one-day aquatics training, including water quality, will be offered for water parks and pools. And for concessionaires and game operators’ a variety of workshops including, but not limited to, Person in Charge (PIC) Food Safety Certification, Midway Security and NEC Mobile Electric Code for carnivals, festivals and fairs will be offered.
The Kalahari Convention Center is large enough to allow for the set-up of rides and ride stations inside the spacious center. This will allow the majority of the training to be hands-on.
“The conference goal is to provide mobile and fixed amusement operators the opportunity to attain industry recognized ride safety inspection training,” asserts David Drake, president of Greater Ohio Showmen’s Association, “thereby increasing the level of safety on midways at fairs, festivals and parks throughout the Midwest.”
“And industry support for the event has been terrific,” notes Drake, adding, “in just a matter of weeks since announcing the event, A.R.M. Mfg., McGowan Insurance, Rides 4U, Audio Innovators, Bates Brothers Amusement Co., Hummel Group, Outdoor Amusement Business Association and Amusement Today have stepped up to become sponsors”.
