We are delighted to have the renowned Tall Buildings High Rise Fire Safety Conference hosted Anticipate London and play a core role in shaping the future of fire safety.”

The conference will cover all current fire safety issues:

Tall Buildings High Rise Fire Safety Conference director, Russ Timpson said “following on from lots of recent high rise fires in 2024 (Valencia, Nanjing, etc) the need for fire safety colleagues to come together and capture best practice has never been more necessary. FIREX as part of Anticipate London has always provided a great platform for this important forum. We look forward to receiving presentation proposals from anyone who has a contribution to make on Tall Building Fire Safety”.
