What is this event?

SFPE's SoCal Chapter holds the annual event for the purpose of funding an academic scholarship as well as providing its members professional development. The day-long event is designed to address a variety of interesting and new topics relating to engineering solutions to fire protection problems.

A variety of presentations are provided in the morning and afternoon, with plenty of time in between to network with professional peers. Exhibitors will display their latest technologies and are available for consultation!

Who can sponsor the event?

Any company can sponsor the event! We have plenty of spaces available for a wide range of different types of sponsorship level.

Sponsors and exhibitors are always advertised leading up to the event and are featured during the event as well.
