SSAIB to Exhibit at FIM Expo 2019 in Sheffield

SSAIB are delighted to confirm our attendance at this year’s Fire Industry Manufacturers’ (FIM) Expo, which is taking place on Wednesday October 16, 2019 at Bramall Lane; the home of Sheffield United FC.

SSAIB will be attending the event – which is open from 8:30am to 2:30pm and is free to attend - alongside BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment), so any registered firms for our fire schemes – or any firms looking to join SSAIB for these certification schemes - will be able to discuss any queries that they have with our team at the event and get the answers to any questions they have there and then.

Organised by the Fire Industry Association (FIA), FIM Expo features many of the UK's leading fire detection and alarm manufacturers and focuses on showcasing the latest products and developments in this sector of the industry. With an average of 25 exhibitors over the last few years, FIM Expo has also grown to become the best local expo for the fire industry.

With a wide range of exhibitors confirmed so far, FIM Expo is for anyone working in this area - whether as an installer or maintainer of fire detection and alarm systems, a manager of such systems in commercial premises or as an architect or person specifying what type of fire protection systems should be installed in a building.

The FIA will also be hosting two free CPD-accredited seminars at the Expo. The subjects for both sessions are yet to be confirmed, but they will focus on key topics affecting the FD&A world.

The Fire Industry Association will also have a stand, so that those interested can meet the Membership Manager and enquire about the benefits of FIA membership (which includes discounts on fire protection training and qualifications, and the possibility of a stand at future FIM Expos.)

When discussing the reasons for attending, FIA membership manager Chris Tilley commented: “Competency - and how you prove it - is at the forefront of everyone’s mind right now and, if it’s not, it should be.

“At the FIM expo this October, the FIA have invited BAFE and SSAIB to offer you a one-stop shop solution. Come and visit us to get expert industry advice on how best to achieve competency for your company and engineers.
