OAFC 2022 Trade Show - Exhibitors
 
 
The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) event is back in person in 2022.  
 

About

Year after year, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) Conference and Trade Show has proven that it is the must-attend event for fire and emergency services in Canada!  Exhibiting at the OAFC Trade Show helps you elevate your brand's profile, provides invaluable networking opportunities, obtain important leads, and generate sales to fire departments who use this equipment/services every day.
 
The OAFC Trade Show is integral to the conference, allowing equipment and service providers to connect with all levels of fire service personnel in Ontario's $1-billion fire and emergency services market.  It continues to be one of the highest rated components of our annual event.  According to a 2019 delegate survey, 95% of responses indicated that next to the educational component, the Trade Show is one of the most important elements of the conference.
 

The OAFC Trade Show is the largest and most successful gathering of fire service manufacturers and suppliers in Canada, offering trade show attendee’s direct access to your sales team to maximize product exposure and corporate visibility.  This event connects vendors with buyers and fire service decision makers. It is a hub for exhibitors to introduce chief fire officers to their latest products or services.

Sponsors and exhibitors have the opportunity to hear firsthand from those in the fire service on how the pandemic has changed their operations, or how new requirements may align to your products and services. The opportunity to either reconnect or build new relationships with Ontario’s fire service will still be front and center throughout the event.  

Don’t miss your opportunity to exhibit at the premiere marketplace in Canada for fire and emergency services!
 
May 6 & 7, 2022 the OAFC Trade Show will include the opportunity for attendees to connect with YOU - one on one at your booth and through education sessions.  Vendor demos will allow for an elevated profile with a larger audience. This is the perfect forum for you to do business and network.
 
Sponsorship and exhibit opportunities for the OAFC 2022 Trade Show and Conference are coming soon, and we would be delighted to have you participate.  This event will provide you with a unique educational experience and allow you the opportunity to increase your company’s brand awareness, build new sales opportunities, reconnect, and expand relationships with chief fire officers, in a safe and enjoyable virtual environment.
