FIREX, one of the largest events in fire safety in Europe, will take place at ExCel London Exhibition Centre from 16-18 May 2023. As part of this year's event, attendees will be able to participate in seminars, briefings, and presentations, as well as meet industry experts and discover the latest in fire safety technology.

Our stand at FIREX will offer a variety of benefits and activities, including the chance to relax with a variety of drinks at the FIA Garden bar, which features a restored British Leyland AEC fire engine that retains its original features, while serving as a bar.

The stand provides a fantastic networking area, where visitors can bring colleagues, customers, and clients for a drink away from exhibitor stands in a relaxed environment. Additionally, visitors can learn more about what the FIA offers by speaking to their staff and getting a hold of literature and event merchandise.

At the event, visitors can speak with FIA staff about membership, training, events, councils, and working groups. It is also possible to introduce visitors to FIA members at the stand to strengthen their connections.

Mates in Mind, a charity organisation that promotes positive mental health in the workplace, will also be present at the stand to display the fantastic work they do. View their website here.

Consort, one of the FIA's member benefits providers, will be on hand to offer advice and information on insurance in the fire industry. View this member benefit here.
