Time for Change

Join us in Birmingham for International Conference 2020.

We are delighted to have found a location for IFE International Conference 2020. Next year we will be visiting Birmingham, United Kingdom for our 97th AGM and International Conference and we cannot wait for you to join us.

So clear a space in your diary from 22nd to 23rd July 2020 and come along to Unique Venues Birmingham (Library of Birmingham/ Birmingham Repertory Theatre) for our conference full of learning, networking and exhibitions.

“Time for Change” will take delegates through the past, present and future of the international fire sector. We will delve into the preservation of heritage buildings, investigate the protection issues we have in the present with passive and active fire prevention, before looking ahead at Modern Methods of Construction and what these mean to the fire sector as a whole.

Alongside the conference we will also be hosting the International President’s Dinner at the Birmingham City Council House on the evening of Wednesday 22nd July. An evening to network, celebrate the year’s achievements and hear from the incoming International President as they host the event in this architecturally stunning location.

A partnership between Birmingham City Library and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Unique Venues Birmingham provides excellent conferencing facilities under the linked buildings in Centenary Square, the heart of Birmingham. With easy access to Birmingham railway stations and a tram stop just outside the building, we are sure it will provide an ideal space for international and UK delegates alike.

There are so many things for you to do in the multicultural hub that is England’s second city. Whether it’s some retail therapy in the world-famous Bullring, exploring the National Sea Life Centre, or visiting the museums and galleries nearby, we hope you manage to make time to see all that this incredible city has to offer.

Join us for this interactive and educational event as we ask: “Time For Change?”

Registration for places for AGM, International Conference and the International President’s Dinner are now open and we are providing early birds with an exclusive discount!
