Seminars to feature an update on BS 5839-1:2017 from FIA Technical Manager, Will Lloyd

14 August 2017

It’s now less than two months until FIM Expo, Wednesday 4th October 2017. This time the FIM Expo will take place at Glasgow Science Centre, one of Scotland's must-see visitor attractions - presenting concepts of science and technology in unique and inspiring ways.

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 two free seminars at the Expo. One will outline the changes on BS 5839-1:2017 and the second one will focus on the future of qualifications in fire detection and alarms. Both seminars are CPD accredited and free 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. To see a full exhibitor list, head to
