2018 Lifesavers Conference: What’s New

Keynote Speaker Announced

Lifesavers is pleased to announce that Deborah Hersman will be the keynote speaker during the opening plenary on Sunday, April 22. Ms. Hersman is president and chief executive officer of the National Safety Council, which saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes, communities and on the roads through leadership, research, education and advocacy.

Ms. Hersman chaired the National Transportation Safety Board from 2009 to 2014. Among her many initiatives as chairman, Ms. Hersman focused attention and actions on distracted driving, child passenger safety and helping victims and their families.

Special Event During the Conference: Fiesta San Antonio

Stands selling sizzling fajitas. Majorettes strutting as military bands march. Cascarones, colorful eggshells filled with confetti, dotting the crowds with prismatic color as they’re broken. Extravagantly decorated floats. Music—mariachi, blues, jazz, rock, country—coming from everywhere. These are just some of the sights and sounds of San Antonio’s Fiesta, an 11-day citywide party. This year marks the event’s 126th anniversary, and San Antonio is pulling out all the stops to make it the most exciting, entertaining and unforgettable Fiesta of all time.

View a complete list of Fiesta events and descriptions, and get a taste of the festivities with photos from previous years. You don’t want to miss the famed river parade on Monday night, April 23!

Did you know? Fiesta San Antonio started in 1891 as a way to honor the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. It has evolved into one of the nation’s premier festivals and is a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse culture. Celebrate with us!
