The JOIFF Virtual Foam Summit 2021 Live – 19th & 20th May 2021 Plus a Further 30 Day On Demand Event

The Global Covid 19 Pandemic has resulted in all of the important Fire Industry Events to be cancelled or postponed.

Due to the risks that Covid 19 represents, organisational travel restrictions & quarantine periods, In house budget restrictions, reluctance to allow Senior Safety Staff to travel to attend physical events due to volume of people & the social distancing challenges plus the probable impact of quarantine periods & self isolation to protect co workers upon return means that…

Attending a physical event is no longer a priority and often no longer a possibility.

To overcome these issues, we are pleased to announce that the annual JOIFF Foam Summit will this year be a virtual event.

The JOIFF Virtual Foam Summit 2021 will be available as a live event on the 19th & 20th May 2021 Plus a Further 30 Day On Demand Event

The JOIFF Virtual Foam Summit 2021 is a Virtual Online Conference & Exhibition platform that will allow all JOIFF Members and the Global High Hazard Fire Community the opportunity to view Key Note conference presentations and participate in live Q & A’s to learn, share and participate in the discussion of the most important issue currently facing our Industry – Fire Fighting Foam

The JOIFF Foam Summit is "Live" for 2 days when you can interact with live video meetings, chat, network in the lounge and then On Demand for a further 30 Days, with continued access to all booths, documents & videos and Subject Matter Expert Presentations without having to leave the office.

Visitors can meet with each other online and also chat directly over video with equipment and technology suppliers who are exhibiting, collate all that product information electronically and communicate it directly via email with colleagues from around the world without having to leave their desk or laptop or tablet or phone.
