The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2011 NFPA Conference & Expo, presented by ROC-NFPA, LLC will be held from Sunday, June 12 to Wednesday, June 15, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), located at 415 Summer Street in Boston. Over 5,000 fire and life safety professionals are expected to attend.

The annual Conference & Expo is the most significant event for fire, security, electrical, and life safety professionals in the nation. While it provides for an exchange of ideas between experts in these fields, it also furthers NFPA’s mission to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards – many of the meetings that take place there will result in new safety and building codes to be voted on at the NFPA’s Technical Meeting on June 14 and 15.

Over 130 education sessions, as well as pre-conference seminars on June 10-11 and post-conference seminars on June 16, will be featured this year. Twelve conference tracks will help attendees gain experience in their particular field:  Building and Life Safety, Codes and Standards, Detection and Notification, Electrical, Emergency Preparedness/Business Continuity, Fire and Emergency Services, Fire Protection Engineering, Fire Suppression, Green, Loss Control/Prevention, Public Education, and Research.

Harvard psychology professor and author of the New York Times bestseller Stumbling on Happiness Daniel Gilbert will be the keynote speaker this year. In addition to the many educational opportunities, over 300 exhibitors from the fire and life safety industries will be present.
