13th Annual IFPA-SFPE Combined Fire Prevention Product Show

w004 w008

Another great show showcasing one of the largest exhibitions of products services and related industrial components of the Fire Protection industry in the Chicagoland area was held on March 12, 2013. This included exhibits from Manufacturers, Fabricators, Distributors, Insurance Organizations, Educators, Engineering Companies and Fire Prevention Associations. The venue, the Medinah Banquets, in Addison, IL, was great as usual given its spacious and comfortable areas, together with its unique ambience. Thanks to all that made this a success!

A couple photos from the event are shown above. On the left, Cecil Bilbo gives his presentation on NFPA 13 Update. On the right, Joe Talbert chats with Kerry Bell at the UL exhibit.
