   Conference Information, Pricing, and Exhibitor & Sponsorship Opportunities


FAA's Annual Meeting and Codes Conference is one of the premier conferences of it's kind. We offer an engaging and informative program with formal and informal opportunities to build your professional network, allowing you to learn, reflect, and engage with colleagues from around the country and beyond. 

Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing appreciates AFAA's mission and advocacy of smoke detection and fire alarm systems. Because of this appreciation, we were able to secure a very generous hotel room rate of $199.00 per night.  

The AFAA Board of directors has agreed to continue the 2017 pricing for the 2018 conference with no price increases across the board.

As the program outline and event schedule is finalized and approved, we will publish the information here. 

There are many sponsorship opportunities available for the annual meeting. As a non-profit organization, we appreciate the support we receive for all of our events. Your commitment to our mission allows us to keep registration pricing to a minimum.

AFAA will be hosting a spouse and family activity both Tuesday and Wednesday.
