Mission Statement:

The 2009 Dallas Suscon will take place from Friday, April 17th to Sunday, April 19th, 2009.  The three day event will feature expert speakers, classes in technique and safety, advanced suspensions and entertainment geared toward both practitioners and enthusiasts.  See timetable below.

The objective of this convention is to promote international communication within the suspension community, share information on techniques, protocols and safety measures, and address many concerns that have been arising due to the negative overexposure of suspension in the media. As you surely know, the suspension community has been growing in leaps and bounds with very little education and regulation to keep our industry in check.  Events such as the 2009 Dallas Suscon afford us the opportunity to provide education and standardize regulation among suspension communities from around the globe. 

Our estimated attendance will be 100+ suspension practitioners, body modification professionals, and body art enthusiasts.  This event is for our suspension community to come together and share knowledge and skills with each other in a socially constructive and beneficial way.
