The International Seating Symposium Presents:

The 2024 Virtual Professional Summit

Day 1: Wednesday, February 7, 2024

Day 2: Wednesday, March 6, 2024

The International Seating Symposium is proud to announce its first-ever Virtual Professional Summit! This event will feature presentations by rising stars and industry veterans alike, sharing their expertise in seating and wheeled mobility. 

What is the ISS:VPS?

The Virtual Professional Summit is a fully-online speaker series, an opportunity to collect Continuing Education Units (CEUs), and so much more! The VPS will have interactive elements and industry-partner spotlights. Over the event’s two days (February 7th and March 6th), expect to learn, meet new colleagues, and experience seating and mobility education in a new, flexible format. 

When is it? 

ISS:VPS will be held on two separate dates: Wednesday, February 7th, and Wednesday, March 6th, 2024. Each day’s schedule runs from 10:00 AM to roughly 5:00 PM, Eastern Time, and will feature a different lineup of presentations, intercut with social discussions and virtual product demonstrations. 

Even better, all ISS:VPS presentations will be recorded! If you miss a session, day, or the whole event, no problem—return to our online platform later to view everything on-demand and receive CEUs. 

Who is presenting?

​Presenters are hand-picked by the International Seating Symposium team and our Advisory Board to showcase knowledge and expertise on a breadth of interesting topics. Please visit the VPS Schedule & Speakers page to learn more!

Can I support the event as a sponsor or industry partner?

Yes! If you are interested in supporting the ISS:VPS, please visit our Supporters & Sponsors page. 

Space is limited, but we have supporter packages to help you increase the visibility of your business to interested clients like our attendees. Please note that the ISS:VPS is not a virtual conference and does not have a “virtual exhibit hall.” Feedback from our friends in the industry informed us that their experiences in virtual exhibit halls have not been lucrative — and we understand! Instead, we’ve done our best to come up with a supporter package that works for your business.

Where is it?

The ISS:VPS is fully online. The full event is hosted in Canvas, the Learning Management System used by the University of Pittsburgh. All sessions and activities are in one Canvas “course” for ease of access.

What do I get with my registration, and how much is it?

Standard registration to the ISS:VPS is $349.00, and gives you access to all ISS:VPS content. Presentations, discussions, product demos, and more. On-demand content and CEUs are included with registration, too—just return to the VPS webpage at any point following the event to view recordings.

But that’s not all! ISS:VPS registrants will also receive a $50 discount to attend the upcoming, in-person, 39th International Seating Symposium! ISS 2025 is scheduled for March 20-22, 2025, in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

How do I register?

Registration to the ISS:VPS has not yet opened. Please join our mailing list to be alerted when our registration portal is available.

Why did you choose to host the Virtual Professional Summit?

Every year, we do our best to take feedback from our attendees, presenters, and exhibitors. We learned that while everyone loves to see each other in-person, the cost of travel has made our guests less likely to visit the same location two years in a row. But there is still a need for high-quality education on an annual basis. So, the ISS team decided to host the VPS in 2024, then put our efforts into making ISS 2025 the best in-person event possible! 

Have you saved the dates for ISS 2025? We can’t wait to see you back in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, March 20-22, 2025. Visit the 39th ISS page for details.
