AFCA CONFERENCE AND TRADE SHOW SPONSORSHIP 
 
The AFCA Annual Conference and Trade Show is vital for continued communication and education of our fire departments.  The AFCA is asking for your assistance as a sponsor to keep costs affordable for our many volunteer departments.

2021 Virtual Conference and Trade Show – May 18 and 19, 2021

The AFCA Conference is often the only opportunity all year for Alberta’s fire services leaders to talk face-to-face and in 2021 it will be a virtual conference and trade show.  It is an occasion for fire personnel to discuss firefighting techniques and strategies plus provide them with a unique opportunity to take part in educational sessions dealing with areas of concern or interest.
 
Volunteers account for 85% of Alberta fire fighters from over 400 departments. The AFCA has worked with fire departments, municipalities, governments, and the private sector to bring awareness of the importance of the fire services to each community in Alberta.  Our sponsors are established in many communities and have employees who also serve their community as volunteer fire fighters.  Your support contributes to safer communities in Alberta. 

Sponsorship

This year’s virtual conference and trade show offers new opportunities for sponsorship.  Similar to previous years there are major sponsorships for keynote speakers and concurrent workshops. This year will include new categories: two fire hall cooking demos, three-3D virtual trade show floors, virtual social networking rooms, a chat feature, selfie-wall, push notifications, a gamification leaderboard and branded face masks. 
 
The AFCA has been the recipient of great sponsorship from many companies and partners who have stepped forward, some for over ten years.  We appreciate this and thank you for again considering this important request.
