FIREX International

Visitor registration opens for FIREX Connect 2021

Visitor registration has now closed for FIREX Connect 2021. 

FIREX International Connect 2021 is a brand-new, month-long digital event running throughout June.

“The event will present an unmissable opportunity for the industry to reconnect and explore the innovative approaches to fire safety that have been born out of a challenging year,” said Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets.

“Attendees will get to grips with the newest fire safety solutions, product launches and the impacts of the latest guidance and legislation.”

FIREX Connect 2021: 1-30 June, Online

The month-long online event running from 1-30 June will provide visitors with the opportunity to connect with new and international audiences through video calls and messaging, browse fire safety solutions and products, connect with suppliers and access thought-leadership content from any location.

Visitors can plan meetings using the tailored 1.2.1 meeting service or the Connect 2021 AI-augmented platform, which will make intelligent recommendations based on their online profile. A series of tech-based presentations and thought-leadership panel discussions focusing on the industry’s most important topics, including building safety and tall building evacuations, are scheduled throughout June.

Over 32,000 visitors from 120+ countries are expected to attend both events to connect with and view thousands of innovative products brand new to the market from more than 600 of the biggest names in the industry, including AICO, C-TEC, Fireco, Coopers, Quelfire, Securiton AG, Vimpex and Independent Fire Inspections.

This year’s FIREX International had been scheduled to take place at London’s ExCeL from 12-14 July, however the team is now focused on preparations for the 2022 edition, with leading names such as Hochiki Europe, Kentec Electronics and Argus Spectrum having already booked their space.

Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets, said: “We’ve worked tremendously hard along with our venue and contractor partners to deliver an event that is both safe and successful for all involved, but it’s become clear that with the ongoing international travel disruption and general uncertainty caused by the pandemic that transitioning to a vibrant online experience that the whole international security community can be part of is the right thing to do.

“Our virtual event, FIREX Connect, will offer delegates and suppliers the chance to come together online and we look forward to delivering an in-person series of events at a scale our customers are used to seeing in 2022.”
