On 21st and 22nd February 2018, FeuerTRUTZ will once again turn Exhibition Centre Nuremberg into the No. 1 meeting place for German and international fire protection experts. Trade visitors can look forward to prestigious new exhibitors, returning exhibitors with bigger stands and an extensive supporting programme. The FeuerTRUTZ exhibition is complemented by the popular Fire Protection Congress. In 2018, the focus of congress discussions will be on the cost-effectiveness of fire protection solutions. FeuerTRUTZ offers fire protection designers, certified experts, architects, building engineers and other fire protection specialists a unique overview of the market as well as valuable industry expertise.
With 275* exhibitors and more than 7,100 trade visitors and congress delegates at the last event, FeuerTRUTZ has enjoyed consistent growth in recent years. For its eighth round next year, the international trade fair and congress for preventive fire protection remains on course for growth. Compared with the same time period before the last event, organisers are reporting two-digit growth rates in exhibitors from Germany and other countries. And the display area booked by exhibitors is already exceeding the total from the previous event by more than 20 percent.
Comprehensive supporting programme has great appeal
Once again, FeuerTRUTZ offers visitors an extensive supporting programme: In the exhibitor forums, companies and organisations provide expert knowledge on products and their professional applications and on industry trends. At the Training & Career Point, training and professional development providers provide information on career prospects in the fire protection sector, while the Fire Protection EXPERIENCE puts exhibitors in the spotlight with exciting live demonstrations.
Wealth of expertise in three compact seminars
Three compact seminars provide additional technical expertise at first hand. The compact seminar on extinguishing technology, “BRANDSCHUTZDIREKT Löschtechnik”, which is held in collaboration with the BVFA (Federal Association for Technical Fire Protection), will focus on the question of storing lithium and high-voltage batteries and other issues. The second compact seminar at FeuerTRUTZ is “Fire Protection in Bavaria”, which enables architects and agency representatives to find out about the latest statutory requirements in Bavaria, for example for implementing the Model Administrative Provisions – Technical Building Code (MVV TB). Finally, specialists representing our event partner VDI will discuss the topic “Effectively Networked in the Event of a Fire?” in the Building Services Expert Forum. The spotlight will be on the latest developments and regulations from the field of building services and fire protection.
Fire Protection Congress provides information on topical issues
Is fire protection a cost driver? In 2018, the renowned Fire Protection Congress will also explore the question of what people are prepared to spend on effective fire protection and what it actually needs to cost. By taking up this issue, congress organisers are highlighting a recurring discussion about the status of fire protection in major projects and existing building stock. The three-track programme will also look at the latest legal frameworks, the implementation of the building code system for building products and construction methods in the various German states, accessibility, and information on construction management and property surveillance.
