ALF 2020 Partners

Sincere thanks to ALF 2020 Sponsors and Exhibitors

Following the unfortunate cancellation of ALF 2020, all at AACE wish to extend our thanks to our sponsors for their preparation and input, and remind our stakeholders of the support they provided during this time, and the fantastic services they offer.

From technology to publishing, logistics to vehicles, communications to simulations, legal expertise to medical devices and more, we are proud to work with such excellent organisations. Without their support the Ambulance Leadership Forum would not be possible, and we are extremely grateful to all of them.

Please take the time to explore below the range of services and solutions they offer to ambulance and wider emergency services.  We look forward to welcoming them back to the 2021 Ambulance Leadership Forum.

Overall Event Partners:
