FIREX International announces plans for 2021 and new dates for in-person event

FIREX International, the largest gathering of fire safety professionals, has announced it will now take place on 12 – 14 July 2021 at the ExCeL, London and will be run in line with the industry recognised and government approved AllSecure standard to ensure attendee safety.

FIREXlogosChris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets announced: “The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and exhibitors is our foremost priority which is why we have moved the date to the summer of 2021 and will be operating under the highest possible level of H&S, which the Informa AllSecure standard enables us to do.”

AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves a number of H&S measures such as deep cleaning, social distancing on-site, staggered arrival times and PPE such as face masks.

In addition, plans were also announced for several online events taking place in June 2021. Chris Edwards commented, “While 2020 had its challenges for in-person events, FIREX International was able to innovate and bring the industry together remotely via online platforms and we are looking to further build on that success in 2021.”

FIREX International’s online experiences will provide opportunities for audiences to have live video calls with exhibitors, browse solution providers and products via an online marketplace while also showcasing some of the very latest in tech innovation, industry best practice and thought leadership.
