The Fire Safety Event is an independent exhibition and conference dedicated to supporting the UK’s fire and safety industry. Featuring a powerful combination of education, networking and business-support opportunities.
Now in its third year, the Fire Safety Event has been designed to help organisations maintain the very highest standards of fire-safety management.

Many exhibitors will also be hosting dynamic, specialist demonstrations on their stands. Kingspan will demonstrate a live burn test on their insulated panel core, and controlled live explosions will be conducted by leading safety storage cabinet manufacturer Asecos to help demonstrate the robustness of their chemical storage cabinets.
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.
This year’s event welcomes high-profile speakers such as Chair of the recent independent review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, Dame Judith Hackitt, former NYC Fire Commissioner Sal Cassano and many more industry-leading names. In the wake of the Grenfell Tower 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 terrorist attack.
The 2019 Fire Safety Event will welcome back many of its supporting partners from previous years. Several key industry associations include 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.
Dominic Louks of the Fire Protection Association (FPA) comments: ‘We are delighted to be taking part in the Fire Safety Event 2019, a dynamic and fast-growing industry event, that brings together authoritative content from leading industry experts alongside manufacturers, suppliers and service providers. The fire sector is currently experiencing heightened awareness, so I am sure these three days are not to be missed.’
