Fire-Rescue EAST

The largest conference and tradeshow in the Southeast, this annual event hosts an extensive offering of training for every level and function within the fire service, with educational hands-on training, lectures, workshops, and real-world scenario competitions. Fire-Rescue EAST typically coincides with and hosts State EMS meetings as well as other industry relevant training such as Emergency Vehicle Technician, Public Information Officer, and other FFCA Section driven professional development. We partner with the Florida Hazardous Materials Symposium to host both events collaboratively so attendees may access training of every kind of interest, all in one location. Vendors may purchase booth space in the exhibit area (see pricing chart). Sponsorships would be an additional cost but offers additional branding opportunities.
