The 2016 Fire Sprinkler Americas Conference is the second gathering of its kind sponsored by the International Fire Sprinkler Association and features two days of informative presentations by world-renowned experts in the automatic fire sprinklers field. This year’s conference continues the dialogue started at the first conference in 2014 around the need for properly designed, installed and maintained fire sprinkler systems in Latin America. The International Fire Sprinkler Association was formed in 1999 by the National Fire Sprinkler Association to encourage the use of sprinkler systems around the world.
