Planning is under way for NFPA Conference & Expo 2022 in Boston, MA, June 6–9, 2022

We can never stop sharing our knowledge with each other if we hope to meet the world’s ever-evolving challenges. That’s why we’re already imagining ways to make next year’s event our most successful ever. Who knows what challenges we will face in 2022? But one thing we all know is that by facing them together, we are helping create a safer world.


The NFPA Conference & Expo has been called the “can’t-miss safety show.” As an exhibitor, you will come face to face with an audience that is actively involved in the specification and purchase of fire- and safety-related products, systems, and services for facilities they design, build, manage, and work in.

The 2022 Conference & Expo will be taking place in Boston, MA, June 6–9, 2022. Email us at exhibitorsvcs@nfpa.org to receive information about participating.
