Can someone tell me why I cant get anything to echo properly with this?

<?php
session_start();

$_SESSION = $_POST;
$_SESSION = $_POST;
$_SESSION = $_POST;
$_SESSION = $_POST;
$_SESSION = $_POST;

?> ... This is on one page
<h2><a href="Conference_Start.php">Personal Information</a></h2>
<p>Company Name: <?php echo $_SESSION ?> <br />First Name: <?php echo $_SESSION ?> <br />Last Name: <?php echo $_SESSION?> <br />Phone: <?php echo $_SESSION?> <br />Email: <?php echo $_SESSION?> </p></td></tr></table>

I want the stuff on the first page to come out into a table on the 2nd page

You need a ';' at the end of all php lines.
Perhaps you're not sending any data - do

print_r($POST)

to see which variables are being passed by your form.

What Im trying to do is, I have a page1 where customer enters information and then what they put in there I want to echo into a table..

I put the info in and all i get is empty lines right by the headers

<?php
session_start();
?>

<h1>Professional Conference</h1>
<h2>Personal Info</h2>
