About this Event

The Fire Sector Summit 2019 will see experts from leading cladding association - MCRMA, government figures and an Immunogeneticist who will discuss contemporary issues shaping our future. Also hear from Jim Fitzpatrick former Fire Minister and current MP of Poplar and Limehouse reflecting on 40 years in the fire industry. This year Jonathan O’Neill, OBE will feature as event chair. Jonathan is renowned to be one of the most influential figures within the sector, never shying away from hard truths.

The morning format will consist of speaker sessions where you will have the opportunity to pose questions to our experts and stimulate debate as part of our panel discussions. Our three unique afternoon workshops offer you the choice to attend either construction, safety codes or thought leadership, to tailor the event to suit you.

As with previous years, discussions held at the Summit will form part of Jonathan’s report, produced for the Fire Minister and will help form the Building Regulations review.
