Suppression, Detection and Signaling Research and Applications Conference
(SUPDET 2022) 

Sheraton Atlanta Hotel 

Don't miss the latest developments in research, technology, and applications for the fire protection community!

Since 1997, the Fire Protection Research Foundation has organized SUPDET(R), an annual symposium which brings together leading experts in the field of fire protection engineering for the purpose of sharing recent research and development on techniques used for fire suppression, detection, and signaling. These seminars are generally attended by a multitude of fire protection professionals, such as engineers, designers, manufacturers, installers, and AHJs. The symposium is split into two separate programs, a “Suppression Program” and a “Detection Program,” both of which are two days. In between the suppression and detection programs is a special event, which is open to all SUPDET attendees, more details to come soon.

Thank you to our sponsors!
