Reporting from the road. Here are three mobile phone panoramic images from Friday at the Fire Expo at the Baltimore Convention Center (top two) and the Brotherhood Bash in Little Italy on Thursday night. Click to enlarge:

How does this expo compare in size to the one that is held in Raleigh?

Great question. Those in the events business can perhaps answer accurately, but here’s my perception of the differences. Comparing this year’s Baltimore show to memories of last year’s Raleigh show. Not exactly apples to apples, mind you. The Baltimore show exhibit floor—square-footage, number of rigs and vehicles, number of vendors—seems somewhat larger. Not hugely so. Maybe not quite (or near) double the size?

@Wondering…. Your question prompted us to run the numbers. The Firehouse Expo 2013 in Baltimore used three halls for a gross of 170,000 square feet. Some of that space was allocated to Convention Services, storage, Food Court, Podcast Areas, Classrooms, etc., for a net LESS THAN 150,000 sf. There were approximately 25 fire apparatus rigs on the show floor.

For the South Atlantic FIRE RESCUE Expo in Raleigh, three halls will be used (total of 150,000 sf). In addition, Exhibits will be in the Mezzanine Level as well as an exterior Apparatus Demo area (Cabarrus Street), resulting in a net that far EXCEEDS 150,000 square feet. The SAFRE Expo is completely SOLD OUT.

You can still get into the Conference and Expo by registering on-site. Additionally, this year there are many special events including the BURN Documentary, Cornhole Tournament, BBQ Throwdown, Fire Truck Parade, Brotherhood Bash and more. Full details are at http://www.southatlanticfirerescueexpo.c..

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Raleigh!
