World-class seminar programme
Alongside the exhibition itself, The Fire Safety event offers 60 hours of free-to-attend CPD-certified content with its on-site seminar programme. Curated and delivered in partnership with Fire & Security Matters magazine, the seminar programme will cover and challenge critical topics in fire safety management today.
In the wake of the Grenfell Tower Fire disaster, Dame Judith Hackitt will explore her Independent Review of Building Regulation and Fire Safety as well as provide an overview of key recommendations direct from the Government, following this review. Alongside Desmond Burke of Firetronics, former Fire Commissioner of the New York Fire Department, Sal Cassano will discuss the enhanced fire protection, stringent fire safety training and building inspections which were implemented following the 9/11 disaster.
The 2019 Fire Safety Event will welcome back many of its supporting partners from previous years, including; The Fire Protection Association, Association for Specialist Fire Protection, Fire & Security Association, Institution of Fire Engineers, Institute of Fire Safety Managers, British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association, Electrical Contractors’ Association, Independent Fire Engineering and Distributors Association, Rail Industry Fire Association, BAFE, Association of Insurance Surveyors and SSAIB.

The fire sector is currently experiencing heightened awareness, so I am sure these three days are not to be missed.”
