Come for the Convention, Experience the Magic

The 33rd Annual Convention & Exhibition of the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA), "Come for the Convention, Experience the Magic," will be held Sunday, September 28 through Wednesday, October 1, 2014, at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Hotel in Orlando.

This convention is the nation's largest gathering of fire sprinkler professionals, drawing nearly 1,000 participants from around the globe, and offers unparalleled professional development opportunities to earn CEU and/or CPD credits.

With dozens of educational workshops, the AFSA conference provides an array of learning and networking opportunities that will benefit business owners, managers, engineers, designers, architects, authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs), and other fire sprinkler professionals. Seminars - from technical sessions focusing on the most crucial topics in fire safety, design, and technology to sessions on business management - will be held Monday through Wednesday.




Another highlight is the industry's largest and most comprehensive exhibition, which features exhibitors representing more than 120 organizations from around the world, including manufacturers and suppliers, government agencies, and more. With unopposed hours, the exhibit hall opens with flair for the always well-attended social event, the Chairman's Reception, Tuesday, September 30 and again, on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 1 during the 21st Annual Apprentice Competition, which takes place in the exhibit hall.
