2 – 4 December 2024 will see the 8th International Tall Building HRB Conference (UK) come to London alongside Anticipate London at the ExCeL exhibition centre.

Other topics submitted by members of the Tall Building Fire Safety Network include Façade fire safety testing, ‘Golden thread’ and safety case development, latest fire research and Insurance issues.

Each day will also feature a topical and relevant debate:

  • Day 1 – ‘How do we get the best from the ‘Golden Thread’ Debate
  • Day 2 – ‘Electric vehicles and Lithium-ion batteries’ Debate
  • Day 3 – ‘How do we make HRB facades Fire Safe’ Debate

Conference Director Russ Timpson of the Tall Building Fire Safety Network commented:

"There has been another spate of tall building façade fires recently (Valencia, China, Istanbul) and people are questioning the status quo regarding long standing aspects of Tall Building Fire Safety. The 8th International Tall Building HRB Conference (UK) seeks to address these questions and find solutions for all those who reside in higher risk buildings."

Several International Fire Safety Membership organisations are sending delegates to the conference, and this should provide a good basis for analysing contrasting approaches and policies.

High profile VIP speakers (pictured - Ben Levy, High Rise Lead for the National Fire Chiefs Council) will be delivering keynote addresses and providing insights into work underway around the World on issues such as façade testing, tall timber, evacuation of people with mobility impairment, fire risk assessment and firefighting.

Previous conferences attracted delegates from architecture, insurance, building control, construction, fire product manufacturers and firefighters.

This is a great opportunity to meet and network with peers and colleagues from around the World. The programme also allows time to visit the FIREX exhibition and see the latest offerings from a wide arrange of suppliers and consultants.

The full programme will be available shortly, but tickets are strictly limited and you are encouraged to book and commit early.
