Symposium 5 – Exhibitor Information


We’re sorry, but we no longer have exhibitor space available for the Symposium. If you are still interested in attending and networking with CRR experts from across the country, you can register online.

Thank you for your interest in the Fifth National Model Performance in Community Risk Reduction Symposium.

Become an exhibitor at Vision 20/20’s Fifth National Model Performance in Community Risk Reduction Symposium on April 9 -11, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA.

Sponsored by Vision 20/20, a project of the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) – USA Branch, and funded through a FEMA Fire Prevention and Safety Grant, this Symposium will showcase successful efforts in all areas of Community Risk Reduction that have potential for reducing fire loss in communities throughout the United States.

Model projects and programs from all disciplines of CRR will be presented and we will include a special focus on resources and methods available to help fire departments reach out to their communities with proven CRR messages and methods.

The Symposium is sponsoring two fire safety or service representatives per state to attend and registration has been extended to other emergency responders and community risk reduction practitioners who are able to support their own travel. We anticipate over 300 fire and life safety professionals taking part.
