Share this content


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will host its annual Conference & Expo at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on June 19-21, 2023.

This year’s event will feature more than 110 educational sessions, over 300 exhibitors, and a variety of pavilions, presentations, and special events.

The NFPA Conference & Expo is the largest and most comprehensive event for the fire, electrical, and life safety industry, bringing together thousands of leading professionals.

Keynote address

One of the highlights of the conference will be the keynote speaker at the opening general session, Dr. Albert Manero. Dr. Manero is a visionary social entrepreneur, educator, humanitarian, engineer, and superhero to hundreds of “bionic kids” who have benefited from his mission to make 3-D printed bionic prosthetic limbs accessible to all.

He will provide an inspiring account of the difference one person can make in the world while championing the art—and highly human impact—of science, technology, engineering, and math.


The conference will also host the NFPA Spotlight on Public Education (SOPE) on June 19-20, which will cover a wide range of public education issues, such as fire prevention programs and approaches for multiple age groups, the value and impact of community partnerships, and CRR strategies that can help effectively impact communities as a whole.

The NFPA Technical Meeting will begin on June 22, allowing NFPA members and the public to express positions on each certified amending motion (CAM). If necessary, based upon the number of CAMs, the meeting will continue on Friday, June 23, allowing additional time for full debate and action. Final details of the Technical Meeting scheduling, as well as the full agenda of all CAMS to be debated and acted upon each day, will be announced by the Motions Committee on or before May 9.
