Networking & Commerce

Here's your opportunity to present at the NFPA Conference & Expo®

The NFPA Conference & Expo® is the premier fire, electrical, and life safety event. If you’re passionate about fire, electrical, and life safety and interested in delivering a dynamic and engaging presentation when we gather June 22–25, 2021, in Las Vegas, we want to hear from you!

With the disappointing cancelation of the 2020 Conference & Expo due to the impact of COVID-19, we are looking forward to making the 2021 Conference & Expo even greater. In 2021 NFPA celebrates its 125th anniversary. The NFPA Conference & Expo is the source for the latest information, knowledge, and tools you need to function efficiently within the Fire & Life Safety EcosystemTM to better serve your mission, advance your career, and be more cost-effective. NFPA Conference & Expo attracts nearly 5,000 attendees annually and provides a forum where you can showcase your contributions to fire and life safety. We want everyone attending next year to learn from your experiences using the Ecosystem model around the world to enhance the understanding, knowledge, and skills of those who promote, plan, apply, operate, and maintain fire, electrical, and life safety systems to protect people and property.

Please note: NFPA is evaluating options that will allow us to provide the best possible educational experience for our stakeholders while adhering to all appropriate guidelines intended to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all. Select sessions may be pre-recorded, delivered virtually, or repeated several times to limited audiences.

Deadline is September 14, 2020, 5 p.m. EDT*

what we’re looking for

We’re particularly interested in sessions that address the following topics:


  • Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem — Share a specific application of the Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem
  • Business continuity and resiliency — Include case studies showing how entities were able to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting culture change
  • Code compliance — Include case studies highlighting where and how collaboration has improved inspection practices and outcomes, or other unique approaches driving code compliance within the Ecosystem while maintaining facility function and appearance
  • Building life cycle — Include applications or case studies illustrating how the Ecosystem has been applied throughout the life cycle of a building or facility.
  • Preparedness and emergency response — Include community risk reduction, emergency responder health and wellness, and efforts to grow and cultivate an informed public.
  • Active shooter and hostile events — Apply the Ecosystem to share experiences planning, responding, or recovering.
  • Emerging issues — Includes mobility/transportation (autonomous vehicles and AFV), renewable energy (ESS and PV), training and education (AR and VR), power over Ethernet (PoE) applications, smart systems and IoT (smart home devices and appliances and AI/robotics), and flammable refrigerants.
  • Investment in safety and skilled workforce — Include case studies where application of the Ecosystem focused on the workforce and their role in improving safety.
  • Data — Innovative ways of collecting, sharing, analyzing, and visualizing information.

The Review and Selection Committee will evaluate all proposals based on such factors as topic relevance, value offered to attendees, and the submitter’s experience and credentials. We are looking for educational sessions that go above and beyond the average podium presentation. Preference will be given to those proposals that promise to deliver content that benefits our attendees through incorporation of one or more of the following elements:

  • Interactivity — Encourages and stimulates audience participation (e.g., via in-session polling, small group discussion, etc.)
  • Case studies — Detail a specific problem using actual incidents, including lessons learned and guidance as to how those lessons can be applied to other circumstances.
  • Panel discussion format — Uses expertise of several contributors to examine a single concept from multiple perspectives and provides opportunity through Q&A for attendees to re-examine their own assumptions or practices.
  • Facilitated discussion — Uses facilitation techniques to promote and stimulate collaboration among attendee stakeholder groups (engineer/designer/contractor; facility manager; inspector; responder) to elicit responses that demonstrate how the different perspectives impact and influence outcomes using specific examples.
  • Skill or experience range — Appeals to all attendees regardless of their level of experience (beginning learners, intermediate, or advanced)

Applications must be received by Monday, September 14, 2020 at 5 p.m. EDT*. For assistance regarding the content of your session, please contact Stacey Moriarty.
