Record-Breaking 2019 NAFSE:

A Rousing Success!

The 2019 NFSA Annual Seminar and North American Fire Sprinkler Expo ended on Saturday, May 18th with breakout sessions in the morning, the Annual Common Voices Golf Classic in the afternoon, and an astounding number of “bravos” and “let’s do it again!” Over 1,200 attendees from across the North American Continent descended on Nashville, Tennessee to attend what has been called “the best ever” annual seminar and expo.

Nashville proved to be the perfect backdrop for our days of education, networking and fun. Broadway was just steps away for all to enjoy after a day of exciting programs and the expo, where the newest and best of all things fire sprinkler related were on display.

“As Chairman of the Board I’m incredibly excited to share the amazing success of last week’s NAFSE. Nashville proved to be an outstanding location for this event, and the venue was certainly up to the task. More so, as a Contractor member, my own team and I were blown away with the outstanding lineup of guest speakers and breakout sessions that made the whole experience something that we wiould never want to miss again. Kudos to NFSA staff and leadership for a job incredibly well done. NFSA has reset the bar for future conferences for all of those attending in Nashville during the record setting event .”
