As both a Conference and Tradeshow, Fire Australia continues to be the largest and most influential fire protection event in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Fire Australia program provides opportunities for local and international industry participants to report on the most recent developments and research achievements in the design, manufacture and application of the industry.
We are calling for papers from fire protection industry executives, customers, marketers, academia, researchers, sales teams, reseller networks, and suppliers. If you are in the industry and feel you can present an interesting and well received topic, we encourage you to submit an abstract and get involved in your industry conference.
FPA Australia invites industry professionals and organisations to submit papers showcasing the innovative practices and technologies in the field of fire protection for the FA24 Conference on the Gold Coast. We are particularly interested in contributions that highlight advancements in the following areas:
