6th International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference

Tall Building Fire Safety Conference

The 6th International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference will focus on innovation, drones, fire science and more.

2018 was our best fire conference to date with 32 countries attending the conference, along with 28 of the UK fire and rescue services. As an industry, we must get to the bottom of the fire testing debate and provide a reliable standard for the construction industryDrones and new technology have a major role to play and we want the conference to be the place where new innovations can be showcased.”
