The International Seating Symposium at the University of Pittsburgh planned from March 12 to 14, 2009, is a multifaceted event covering many topics within the general themes of seating and wheeled mobility.

The event is a valuable venue for discussion, debate, and hands-on opportunities targeting the latest trends and advancements in the industry. Pre-symposium workshops are planned from March 10 to 11.

A celebration is planned in recognition of the 25th ISS and more than a quarter century of creativity, dedication, and hard work that has helped to advance the field of seating and wheeled mobility. It will be held from 6:30 pm to 9 pm at the conference hotel.

Funds are being solicited to help cover the cost of the celebration. Contact Linda Szczepanski at (412) 586-6921, or via e-mail for sponsorship opportunities.
