January 27, 2010, Lisle, IL—The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and ROC Exhibitions, Inc. announced today that Americas’ Fire and Security Expo (AFSE), previously held in Miami, will join together with the 2010 NFPA Conference & Expo, the largest and most prestigious fire and life safety industry event in the United States which will be held in Las Vegas June 7-10.
“AFSE has been a successful event for 15 years, serving primarily the Latin American distributors and integrators of fire and security products. Joining with NFPA’s premier Conference & Expo, which alternates between Chicago, Boston and Las Vegas, will better serve distribution channels and end users from Latin America by providing a larger audience and additional opportunities,” said Marc Rosenstock, President of ROC Exhibitions, Inc. “We are also exploring options for a possible return to Miami in 2011 with a new regional show that would meet the needs of that market,” Rosenstock added.
Sessions of special interest to the Latin American audience will be offered in Spanish or simultaneously translated, a Latin American networking function will be introduced, and an International Business Center will be established for the convenience of end-users and channel partners visiting from Latin America and other countries.
NFPA and ROC Exhibitions, Inc. are inviting both attendees and exhibitors from AFSE to participate in the 2010 NFPA Conference &Expo which takes place June 7-10 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas , NV .
Exhibiting companies interested in reaching the largest gathering of international fire, life safety and electrical professionals in the region are encouraged to demonstrate their products at the 2010 NFPA C&E.
Conference attendees will be able to select from over 130 educational presentations organized by the NFPA to keep them up-to-date with the most important trends and code issues in the industry. At the expo, end users, distributors, and integrators will have an opportunity to network with 5,000 of their industry peers and interact with over 300 market-leading manufacturers and suppliers to the industry.
