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 400 Chief Officers and other fire service personnel from across B.C.
The event goes for 2 days starting Sunday at noon 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 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 also includes all meals and coffee breaks.
The Conference Committee has tentatively planned the following future dates and locations:
June 8-12, 2025 Penticton — Penticton Trade and Convention Centre / Lakeside Hotel
June 7-11, 2026 Victoria — Save on Foods Memorial Centre / Delta Ocean Pointe Resort
June 6-10, 2027 Penticton — Penticton Trade and Convention Centre / Lakeside Hotel
June 3-8, 2028 Location TBA
Chief Officers and Delegates
The BC Fire Expo provides access to trade vendors specifically focused on our fire and emergency industry as well as the opportunity to network with vendors and other chiefs.
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.
