The 2022 Fire Industry Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) and lunch took place at The Brewery, a beautiful venue in central London that has become the home of the FIA AGM and Annual Lunch in recent years.

15 November 2022

Despite the challenges presented in getting to the Brewery with both trains and the Underground causing travel mayhem, this year’s AGM and Annual Lunch brought together 500 leading industry figures. Our guests had the perfect opportunity to network with influential figures in our industry as well as catch up and socialise with industry colleagues. With so many high profile people from the fire industry under one roof, this years Lunch was an event not to be missed.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Members had the opportunity to hear about the FIA’s performance over the last 12 months as well and find out more about key projects we have been working on. Presentations were delivered on several key departments within the FIA; Finance, Training, Membership and Marketing to name a few. In addition to this, members and had the opportunity to ask questions relating to key elements of the Association’s work.Annual Lunch

The lunch this year was delightful, a full three-course meal accompanied by the choice of red or white wine. This year’s menu was picked by members of the FIA team to ensure our guests had a wonderful dining experience. 

Following the delicious three-course lunch the FIA Chairman, Martin Watson, recognised the FIA’s exceptional contribution to the fire safety industry. FIA CEO, Ian Moore, then presented our most prestigious award – ‘The FIA Lifetime Achievement Award’, Colin Todd being the worthy winner. As he collected his award, FIA CEO, Ian Moore cited some of Colin’s achievements over his incredibly successful career in the fire industry. Once again, huge congratulations to Colin!

Jo Caulfield provided this year's after-dinner entertainment. The accomplished comedian took centre stage to delight and amuse with an act tailored to the audience. We all enjoyed laughing at the expense of our industry colleagues while Jo picked apart their websites to hilarious effect.

The 2022 FIA AGM & Lunch was brought to the members in association with the industry-leading FIREX International, the world's leading fire safety exhibition.
