Chicago MCFP 2019 Sneak Peek + Attendee FAQs Answered

Posted by ORR Protection on Aug 19, 2019 11:26:44 AM


We're incredibly grateful for a strong year of 2019 MCFP regional conferences, especially after the face-lift our format received this year. There's just 1 more chance to register for our last city of the year: Chicago! If you've had questions about the content, what to expect, cost and benefits or even a video sneak peek, keep reading.


Register for the upcoming conference in CHICAGO ON September 5



WhO Should Attend?

Anyone responsible for the fire protection of mission critical facilities.

Managers, facility directors and maintenance professionals who make fire protection decisions will all benefit from MCFP. Architects, engineers, designers, contractors, estimators, risk managers, AHJs, building inspectors, plan examiners and fire marshals can also get great ideas and networking opportunities.


What Can I Expect from the Conference Experience?

This year, ORR Protection is expanding our annual seminar series into a full-day event for 2019—the Mission Critical Fire Protection Regional Conference

In this new format, ORR will partner with experts from Fike, Xtralis and Notifier to bring you the latest in all-things Mission Critical. In addition, a local expert will speak on topics appropriate to the Great Lakes region, specifically, and there will be extensive time to talk and network as the experts walk you through your personal fire protection strategy.

That's right--in addition to the industry leaders traveling around the country, you'll be able to network with local professionals who can give you the most relevant advice on what you really need to know about keeping your people and facilities safe. 

Customized Regional Content

While all of our conference locations received an in-depth understanding of Clean Agent Systems from ORR's VP of Engineering, Lee Kaiser, the Chicago area will also get to hear about how the concept applies to the industries, codes and even weather patterns around you. 

For example, our Southern California conference in Los Angeles learned about best practices for data centers and pharmaceutical warehouses as specific instances of how to apply fire protection risk and recovery methods in these common regional industries. 

More Focused Regions for Greater Impact

While we loved getting to see as much of the country as possible during our previous years' city-focused seminar series, we saw a high demand for more in-depth seminars spanning more than a few hours. You asked, we listened--and now you can experience a full-day of Mission Critical conversations and networking with our region-focused approach in Chicago.

Year-Long Regional Resources Available Online

In addition to joining us in-person, you can now also access the MCFP materials from anywhere with the launch of our new resource center. You can see the webinar recordings, search for events based on your location and get the latest new blog posts to your email by browsing there.
