About the Program

Current trends are bringing about a conversion in use of buildings and spaces due to changing occupational patterns arising from the COVID 19 pandemic and this raises the question – are the fire and safety standards of such buildings still adequate? Specialist planners and experts, architects and engineers, employees of public authorities and fire departments as well as fire protection officers will converge in Cape Town to discuss innovative solutions and products for fire prevention and fire containment. The changes in technologies necessitates the need for change in fire systems design as well. The conference will offer critical insights in the practice and a forum where you can meet other professionals, share experiences and exchange ideas. Our competent and experienced speakers and moderators will facilitate discussions and answer your questions.
