What we do here improves safety everywhere

The world never stops changing, so we never stop learning how to keep it safe. From the proliferation of cutting edge technologies to the increased frequency of active shooter/hostile events—the NFPA Conference and Expo® is your opportunity to learn about the latest challenges and come together to find new and improved solutions for helping to overcome them.

Join us in Orlando for the essential event for fire, electrical, and life safety professionals. This year’s program features dozens of distinguished speakers, hundreds of exhibitors, and the chance to share your expertise and connect with a global network of colleagues collaborating to make the world a safer place.

THE NFPA CONFERENCE AND EXPO® WILL BE HELD AS SCHEDULED: As of , there are no changes to the Conference and Expo in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). NFPA continues to monitor the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other global and local health organizations and resources for developments that may inform future decisions. Should changes be made they will be communicated here.

General Session

General Session will focus on the leadership principles that will allow our community to lead the way toward a safer world. We must all exhibit such characteristics to ensure thoughtful and strategic planning for, response to, and recovery from the events happening around us. Those principles will be examined by this year’s General Session speakers.
