Every year, thousands of the leading fire, electrical and building safety professionals, from around the world consider attendance at the NFPA Conference & Expo a must. The NFPA Conference & Expo is widely regarded as the most comprehensive event in the industry. Taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, the event combines an unrivaled educational conference with an expo of more than 300 solution providers.
Why do they keep coming back?
They know there’s no better place to be when they’re looking for ways to do a better job, update their knowledge, solve a problem, save money, make more money, keep up with their competition and much more. In general, show their commitment to a very important shared mission. That mission has been the NFPA’s mission for more than a hundred years; to reduce the pain, suffering and financial burden created by a fire, an explosion, or an unsafe electrical discharge.
What is the NFPA?
The NFPA is the world’s leading advocate of fire prevention and an authoritative source on public safety. NFPA develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and related risks.
The NFPA publishes 300 codes and standards that influence every building, process, service, design, and installation in the U.S. and many other countries. These codes have been developed by its members and other industry stakeholders over the course of the association’s 115 years of concerted effort, and are continuously refined through research, training, communication, and a robust consensus building process.
The annual event, NFPA Conference & Expo, plays a key role in developing and disseminating code information through a comprehensive technical program, and for the ever evolving consensus codes, the NFPA Technical Meeting where revisions, motions, and consent documents are presented and voted on.
