NYSAFC 113th Annual Conference & FIRE 2019 Expo

June 12-15, 2019
The Oncenter • Syracuse, NY

The largest fire industry, rescue, and EMS expo in the Northeast is moving! Join NYSAFC for the 113th Annual Conference & FIRE 2019 Expo at The Oncenter, located in downtown Syracuse! The Oncenter will allow for expanded exhibit space, more classroom education programs, and enhanced training opportunities.

Exhibits, including apparatus displays, will be situated inside the venue and outside in a parking lot adjacent to the state-of-the-art facility. Classroom education programs and other activities will also be held at The Oncenter. The Syracuse Fire Department will be hosting NYSAFC's popular hands-on training program at its nearby, fully equipped training facility.

NYSAFC has reserved room blocks in nine hotels, most within walking distance to The Oncenter. The newly remodeled Marriott Syracuse Downtown (formerly The Hotel Syracuse) will serve as the host hotel, housing NYSAFC staff and volunteers only. The popular Armory Square neighborhood, with the highest concentration of restaurants and nightlife venues in the Syracuse area, is also just a short distance from The Oncenter.

Plan ahead and mark your calendars for our upcoming expos at The Oncenter! FIRE 2020 will be held June 10-13, 2020, and FIRE 2021 will be held June 16-19, 2021.
