Virtual Fire & Rescue Expo
by: RescueNet Staff
Virtual Fire & Rescue Expo, the world's first major interactive Web-based conference for the global online fire and rescue community, will hold its second conference at this site May 3-17, 1998. Established in 1997 by National Fire & Rescue magazine and WCES, VFRE was modeled after site-based trade conferences, offering a full slate of interactive educational workshops from credentialed speakers from across the United States, a virtual exhibit hall featuring multimedia exhibits by vendors of products and services, door prizes, live chat workshops and socials, and lots more. Unlike other trade conferences for the fire service, however, you can travel to this conference at no charge through the World Wide Web.
Attendance is FREE, and our exhibit halls and workshops will be open to visitors round the clock during the conference.
The first VFRE conference, Feb. 6-9, 1997, received more than a quarter of a million hits, served more than 7,100 individual visitors and delivered more than 2.5 gigabites of data to the Internet's fire, rescue and emergency services community. Further information about last year's expo and updates on interactive workshops, live-chat schedules, exhibitor and advertising schedules, preregistration information and other updates on VFRE 1998 will be posted here as details are confirmed. Please bookmark this site now and revisit us periodically to see how our exciting new-age conference for the fire service is taking shape at www.vfre.com.
