About us

Trades and Exhibitors

The BC Fire Expo is the largest exhibition of fire service equipment and services in the Pacific Northwest.
With an average of 125 inside booths and 30 outside displays, the BC Fire Expo attracts over 300 Chief Officers, Emergency Vehicle Technicians and firefighters from across B.C.
The event goes for 2 days starting Sunday at 11 am with the trade floor closing at 7 pm but the networking continues, to build those important relationships. It continues on Monday from 9 am to 3pm. There are a minimum of meetings scheduled during this period to maximize your "face time" with the attendees.
This is a unique opportunity to interact with departments of all sizes and compositions and some departments that are otherwise impossible to visit.
The BC Fire Expo is reasonably priced at only $945 per booth or outside space with one representative included in the price as well as coffee and meals. All 8' x 10' inside booths also include a table and 2 chairs and a fully carpeted floor as well as wireless internet inside - all included in this low price! If you are bringing more than one representative the extra registration of $126 also includes all meals and coffee breaks.

Chief Officers and Delegates

The annual education conference provides many benefits to delegates, including administrative education, best practices for government and municipal operations, new technology, and the latest safety concerns for our citizens and our firefighters.
Classes offered during the education summit provide key information on leading your Fire Department into the future.  The Conference Committee and Education Committee choose an annual "theme", with the educational sessions providing delegates innovative tools to help improve your community's safety.  The BC Fire Expo provides access to the local trade vendors specifically focused on our fire and emergency industry. 
All delegates who have attended the annual FCABC educational conferences have stated there is great value in attending, as they return with a better understanding of how to effectively manage and lead their fire departments.
