The Canadian Wildfire Conference, an expanded program of our previous Aerial Firefighting Conference, is designed to bring together leaders from both the aerial and ground sectors involved in wildfire suppression. The two-day conference in Kelowna, BC. is presented in partnership by industry leading properties of Annex Business Media, including Wings, Helicopters, Canadian Firefighter and Firefighting in Canada.

After three years of organizing the successful Aerial Firefighting Conference, our media teams feel it is crucial to bring together air and ground stakeholders to provide a unique experience in wildfire thought leadership and networking.

The event begins with an appreciate dinner to recognize ground and air first responders at the Summerhill Pyramid Winery. Educational sessions and networking begin the next day, at the KF Aerospace Centre for Excellence, with dozens of sector-leading suppliers on hand to exhibit and discuss new technologies and services, demonstrations, and range of presentations about developments in wildfire suppression, including, but not limited to:

Air and ground interoperability
Structural support and protection
Water system investments
Aircraft innovations
Equipment procurement
Crew Resource Management
Theatre safety
Governmental participation
Trends, challenges and opportunities
