“I’ve been attending the SFPE Annual Conference & Expo since I became a member in the 1990s, and I can say – without a doubt – that this event is the best place for fire protection engineers to learn about fire dynamics, fire research, industry innovation, and so much more,” stated Beth Tubbs, PE, FSFPE, President of SFPE and Conference Chair. “Not only is the conference a chance to be immersed in best-in-class learning, but attendees also have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits while discovering how peers from around the world deal with similar engineering challenges.”  

“When looking to build professional connections, there is no better place to meet, to talk with, and to learn from the brightest and most creative fire protection engineers,” continued Rose West, PE, President of the SFPE Michigan Chapter and Conference Co-Chair. “Plus, all of the top companies in fire safety and fire protection will be here showcasing their newest technologies and engineering solutions.”
