Seminar & Trade Show Update

The 2020 SFPE Seminar and Trade Show has been rescheduled for October 14, 2021. To protect the health and safety of everyone, the Executive Committee and Board have decided to postpone the 2020 Fall Seminar & Trade Show. We have made this decision by following the recent upward trend in Coronavirus cases and our concern for the health and safety of all those who would attend the event.

The event has been rescheduled for October 14, 2021, at the Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel in King of Prussia, PA.

As in past years, there will be a total of 11 presentations provided throughout the day. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose which topics they are interested in and attend up to 6 sessions during the seminar. PDH credits will be offered.

Thank you for your understanding and support. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are prioritizing the health of everyone who would be attending.

We look forward to seeing everyone in October of 2021.

Recognition of fire protection engineering as a discrete engineering discipline is a prime goal. Engineering disciplines exist because there is a special body of knowledge based on the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering science and economics.
