The Fire Industry Association (FIA) is proud to announce that they have signed a three year sponsorship agreement with United Business Media (UBM) Live for the FIA’s flagship event – the annual FIA AGM Lunch.

The agreement will see UBM Live as the sole sponsor for three years, ensuring the quality and kudos of the event for the duration. The association’s AGM & Lunch has been a regular feature on the fire industry calendar since the Association’s formation in 2007, growing every year to now accommodate 400 attendees.

FIA CEO, Graham Ellicott, says of the agreement, “We already have a good relationship with UBM, having worked closely with them for a number of years on the Firex International exhibition, and now we’re delighted to welcome them as the sole sponsor of our AGM Lunch. The agreement will only serve to bring the organisers of the UK’s largest fire exhibition and our members closer together.”

IFSEC and FIREX international Event Director, Gerry Dunphy, comments, “ We’re very pleased to be the sole sponsor for the industry’s flagship event and continuing our strong partnership with the FIA. This event is always hugely enjoyable and the opportunity gives FIREX and the Protection & Management Series in general a formidable profile within the UK fire industry.’’
