Fire Australia 18 Conference and Trade Show

Brisbane

The Fire Australia 2018 Conference and Tradeshow is the country's premier life and fire safety event, and will run on 1-3 May 2018 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC).

The event is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and the best opportunity to reach the fire protection, safety, hazardous materials and dangerous goods audience in Australia. The event attracted more than 1000 trade show attendees with over 90 stands in 2017, and 300 conference delegates, making it the largest Fire Australia ever. 

Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) administers the Bushfire Planning and Design (BPAD) Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme). The Scheme was first developed and implemented in 2006 in response to demands from the community, government and industry to establish a recognition program for bushfire planning and design (BPAD) Accredited Practitioners to assist the community undertaking development on land subject to bushfire impact.

Our theme is Ecology in the Anthropocene, reflecting the era of great tribulation and yet great opportunity in which we live.
