It’s now two months until next FIM Expo, Thursday 4th October 2018. This time the FIM Expo will take place at Doncaster Racecourse. Doncaster is one of the oldest (and in terms of physical capacity – largest) established centres for horse racing in Britain, with records of regular race meetings going back to the 16th century.
Organised by the Fire Industry Association (FIA), FIM Expo features many of the UK's leading fire detection and alarm manufacturers and focuses on showcasing the latest products and developments in this sector of the industry.
The FIA will also be hosting free seminar at the Expo. The seminar will outline the changes on
BS 5839-1:2017. There will be two sessions on the day one in the morning and one in the afternoon to make sure all delegates will have a chance to attend.
With a wide range of exhibitors confirmed so far, FIM Expo is for anyone working in this area, whether as an installer or maintainer of fire detection and alarm systems, a manager of such systems in commercial premises or as an architect or person specifying what type of fire protection systems should be installed in a building.
“We are absolutely delighted to present FIM Expo,” said Kat Schabowska, the Event Co-ordinator, “it’s a fantastic place for like-minded individuals to meet, exchange ideas, network, and learn more about new products from a wide range of manufacturers. New products are being released onto the market all the time and this is a great way to come and see them first-hand and discuss how these new products might work for you.”
With an average of 25 exhibitors over the last few years, FIM Expo has grown to become the best local expo for the fire industry.
FIM Expo is open from 09.30 to 15:30 on Thursday 4th October 2018 and is free to attend.
