Fire Protection and Safety in Tunnels Asia

Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd February, Singapore

Due to the environment and structure of tunnel design evolving, fire safety needs to be factored in throughout every part of the process from emergency response systems to ventilation to fire resistant materials. With Asia having some of the longest tunnels in the world and some of the most rapid developments occurring globally, Fire Protection and Safety Asia is the best platform to uncover current and future projects across the region and pinpoint the best strategies to ensure fire design is implemented accordingly. With hundreds of billions of dollars being pumped into Asian projects, this is the best opportunity for you to engage with all project leaders from design to construction to operations and ensure fire safety at the highest level.
