LONDON, September 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Event organiser UBM Live is proud to announce that Arup will be leading the fire engineering education at the IFSEC Istanbul Conference 2013.
Arup will engage conference attendees across two thought-provoking presentations focused on how to build effective fire safety strategies.
Enlightening delegates on the implementation of life-saving solutions, Calum McMillan (Senior Fire Engineer at Arup) recognises the importance of engaging with the high level attendees at IFSEC Istanbul 2013.
McMillan said: "Arup views the IFSEC Istanbul 2013 Conference as an excellent event covering both the security and fire sectors. There will be a highly influential audience in attendance, and we're delighted to be giving two presentations as part of the three-day programme."
McMillan continued: "Professional development is a core value of the security and fire industries. With the educational programme spanning a range of topics that will debate issues including current industry standards and international Best Practice, this makes the IFSEC Istanbul 2013 Conference an important event to attend."
Recognising that the future of fire engineering is evolving, McMillan's colleague Pascal Steenbakkers makes the first of Arup's two presentations on Tuesday 1 October. This conference session runs under the heading: 'Fire engineering: Where are we going?', and will incorporate an assessment of the fire engineering challenges of the future and how they might be addressed through the adoption of Best Practice techniques.
Later in the day, Calum McMillan's presentation is entitled: 'Evacuation/Crowd Modelling and Performance-Based Design'. Here, a Case Study will be referenced to illustrate how modelling software can be used to predict the behaviour of crowds in highly populated environments and, in turn, help improve fire safety measures.
Brian Sims, Media Solutions Manager for UBM Live's Security and Fire Portfolio, commented: "We're absolutely delighted that Arup will be taking part in IFSEC Istanbul 2013 and offering such thought-provoking conference presentations. It's important the fire sector is fully aware of future developments, and these presentations will demonstrate what is possible. We look forward to welcoming Arup at the conference."
IFSEC Istanbul takes place from 30th September-2nd October 2013 at the Lütfi Kirdar Istanbul Convention & Exhibition Centre, Istanbul. Register for free at http://www.ifsec-istanbul.com
