Why Exhibit?


The American Fire Sprinkler Association is a non-profit trade association whose membership includes fire sprinkler contractors and designers, manufacturers and suppliers of fire sprinkler products, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction.

AFSA hosts an annual convention and exhibition each Fall to introduce the latest technology in the fire sprinkler industry. Our conference also includes apprentice competition, educational seminars, tours, networking, and social events. It is the largest fire sprinkler exhibition in North America.



As an exhibitor, advertiser, or sponsor  – four days with 600+ decision makers, representing 200+ contractor companies at AFSA39 will be time extremely well spent.

We want our exhibitors to have as much time with customers as possible, so we have specially designed our conference schedule to create multiple opportunities for attendees to visit the exhibit hall as well as network at more casual gatherings and events.

Attendees include:

  • Fire Sprinkler Contractors
  • Designers
  • Manufacturers and Suppliers
  • Authorities Having Jurisdiction

Additional Networking Opportunities:

  • Three Networking Breakfasts
  • Three Networking Lunches
  • Exhibitor Appreciation Event
  • Awards Party (1 Ticket per Booth)


  1. Unopposed Exhibit Hours
  2. Annual Apprentice Competition in Exhibit Hall
  3. Exhibition Grand Opening Reception
  4. Free passes for the second day of exhibits to AFSA and exhibitor-invited guests

Three days with 600+ decision makers
