Tickets on sale for FIRE Conference 2023
The annual FIRE Conference will return later this year, taking place on Tuesday 17 October at The Institution of Engineering and Technology in London. Developed by leading bodies within fire safety, this year’s instalment will address sustainability, new legislation and leading the future of fire safety in a time of unprecedented change.
Organised by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE), the Fire Protection Association (FPA), the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) and the Fire Sector Federation (FSF), the event has become a staple in every fire professional’s calendar. Providing key updates and driving momentum in evolving best practices, the one-day event will offer a host of seminars and workshops delivered by industry experts.
The hybrid event will address the new scope of meeting building safety expectations, the future of certification, and keeping pace with new legislative changes and sustainable developments. It will also provide an update on the progress of the national fire strategy white paper, produced by the Fire Sector Federation Fire Strategy Board and launched at FIRE 2022, which seeks a framework to effectively manage fire risk to help achieve a sustainable and safer society.
This year’s conference will be chaired by Broadcaster, Sima Kotecha. Commenting on FIRE Conference 2023, Sima said: “Events like this are pivotal to professionals working in fire and showcase developments and a hopeful future in the sector.
This year’s format will focus on the future and key developments from the four leading organisations in fire safety; I’m really looking forward to being part of these conversations.”
Delegates will hear from conference leaders and each party will provide a comprehensive update on developments in place to ensure a future safer from fire.
