Call for papers for 2018 CHC Safety & Quality Summit

CHC Helicopter has issued a formal call for papers for the 2018 CHC Safety and Quality Summit, focusing on this year’s theme: Building Safety at Every Level: Does this start at the top or with front line employees?


The 14th Summit will once again take place at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center, located near Dallas, Texas, running from Oct. 2 to 4. The Summit will feature a series of presentations led by experts in the fields of aviation, oil-and-gas and energy, and safety.

This year, invited speakers will lead approximately 100 concurrent sessions over a three-day period, addressing the theme and helping to contribute to the safety conversation in our industries, promoting excellence in safety and human factors and maintaining a robust safety environment. Last year’s event was a resounding success, as approximately 500 delegates representing nearly 30 countries gathered for the summit for its first time in Texas.

Potential speakers will have until March 30 to submit entries to lead one or more of the 90-minute sessions during the three-day event.

Interested speakers are encouraged to visit the summit website to access additional information. Submissions should be sent to [email protected] and should include proposed titles, a description or outline, objectives and audience benefits, a brief speaker biography and contact information.
