NFPA Conference & Expo named fastest growing tradeshow


The National Fire Protection Association Conference & Expo (NFPA C&E) announced that it has been named one of the 50 fastest growing trade shows by Trade Show Executive magazine. NFPA C&E ranked in the top 50 by growth in net square feet of exhibit space. Winners were selected based on the highest percentage of growth in three metrics—exhibit space, number of exhibitors, and size of audience.

“We are honored to be included in the Fastest 50 - Class of 2012,” said Marc Rosenstock, president of ROC Exhibitions Inc. which co-produces the event with the NFPA in Quincy, Mass . “Trade show industry recognition is indeed gratifying, but the real satisfaction comes from knowing that our efforts are creating a dynamic environment for exhibitors and attendees to conduct business.”


NFPA is the nation’s top trade show, educational conference and networking event for fire protection and life safety professionals. Each year, the event draws thousands of professionals—architects, engineers, contractors, facility designers & managers as well as public and private fire service personnel, enforcement agencies, insurers and utility managers.


NFPA C&E 2013 is scheduled for June 10-13 at McCormick Place in Chicago. An attendance of more than 4,500 professionals and 350 exhibitors is expected.
