NFPA replaces 2021 Conference & Expo
with new virtual conference series to run throughout 2021
125th Anniversary Conference Series unveiled
January 12, 2021 – With the continued uncertainty of live events stretching well into 2021, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) announced today that the 2021 NFPA Conference & Expo® will not happen as scheduled and instead will be replaced with the 125th Anniversary Conference Series, a year-long, targeted, virtual experience.
“C&E is recognized as a world-class experience for all our attendees and we can’t safely hold an in-person event of this size,” said Jim Pauley, NFPA president and CEO. “We needed to switch gears in order to be able to fully devote our efforts to creating a new, different experience that lives up to our high expectations and one where everyone could safely attend and participate.”
The new conference series will feature education sessions for specific areas of expertise, networking events, and product showcases throughout 2021 and culminating with the return of an in-person event in Boston to recognize the 125th Anniversary of NFPA in 2022.
“NFPA is about safety. We are also about leveraging technology to significantly advance the way safety information is delivered and used to reduce loss across the globe,” said Pauley. “The 125th Anniversary Conference Series will innovatively showcase both these aspects.”
The NFPA annual business meeting will take place virtually this year during the week of June 21, 2021.
The annual technical session will take place electronically at a date to be announced. Additional details on the technical session can be found at https://www.nfpa.org/2021techsession.
