Welcome to our FeuerTrutz 2019 Preview where more than 300 exhibitors, around one in five of which come from outside Germany, are expected at FeuerTrutz 2019 on 20 and 21 February. As a result, the trade fair focusing on active, passive and organizational fire protection solutions is still on the fast track to success. As well as a comprehensive market overview, visitors to Exhibition Centre Nuremberg can look forward to an even more extensive supporting programme. Industry experts will gather for knowledge transfer at the accompanying fire protection congress, where the spotlight is on fire protection concepts, technical regulations and issues relating to standards.
“As well as a comprehensive market overview, FeuerTrutz 2019 offers the opportunity to experience the practical aspects of fire protection,” says Stefan Dittrich, who is responsible for the industry hot spot in his capacity as Director of FeuerTrutz. More than 300 German and international companies will gather for this year’s event, even more than in the previous years. The growing internationality of the event is reflected for example by the Ukrainian national pavilion, the first group appearance by foreign exhibitors at FeuerTrutz: In cooperation with the Eastern European umbrella association ECEU FIRE, the pavilion will feature four Ukrainian companies.
Fire Protection EXPERIENCE – demonstrations with wow factor
The Fire Protection EXPERIENCE combines practical product demonstrations in the halls with live demonstrations in the outdoor demonstration area. In Hall 10.0, Siemens turns building information modelling into a virtual experience, while in Hall 10.1, an experiment by svt Brandschutz will show how fire protection coatings and fire retardant tape work. Stöbich Brandschutz uses a special smoke duct to demonstrate the functioning of a smoke curtain and VR goggles to show current reference systems in open room concepts. Outdoors, the young Austrian company GROMA247 will conduct several test fires to demonstrate its early fire detection system that prevents false alarms. Water mist fire extinguishers from Neuruppin Brandschutz will be put through their paces in realistic application scenarios. And with a mobile fire container in the demonstration area, Stöbich Brandschutz will show the capabilities of its textiles for fire protection applications. The outdoor demonstrations will take place at 12:00 and 15:00 on both days of the fair.
Exhibitor forums, international workshop and compact seminars
Companies present their innovations and trends in the exhibitor forums – the Specialist Series Forum in Hall 10.0 and Expert Talks Arena in Hall 10.1. On the first day of the fair, the programme will be complemented by English-language presentations. Another new feature is the international workshop “German Fire Protection”. Running parallel to the trade fair, this workshop allows suppliers and specialists from overseas to gain an overview of preventive fire protection in Germany. The compact seminar on extinguishing technology “BRANDSCHUTZDIREKT Löschtechnik” puts the spotlight on active fire protection solutions. The seminar “Fire Protection in Bavaria” is devoted to the changes to regulations faced by architects and agency representatives in Bavaria.
Training and professional development a key topic at FeuerTrutz
Fire safety professionals wishing to acquire additional specialist knowledge and anyone aspiring to a career in fire protection can get exactly the information they need from the 16 exhibitors at the Training & Career Pavilion. This is where you will learn about the training and professional development opportunities in demand in the fire protection sector – from compact training units to intensive courses and degree qualifications.
Jobs Board with vacancies for fire safety professionals
The lack of skilled professionals across industries, exacerbated by the ongoing construction boom, presents challenges for fire protection providers. For job applicants, on the other hand, the sector offers interesting prospects. FeuerTrutz is therefore bringing employers and employees together at the event. Interested visitors will find job advertisements for fire safety professionals in the Jobs Board in Hall 10.0, while job seekers can also use it to attract the attention of their preferred employer directly.
Fire Protection Congress explores topical issues
The prestigious fire protection congress on the theme “Realising fire protection goals: concepts and solutions for standard and special buildings” takes place parallel to the exhibition. In three congress tracks, more than 35 experts will speak about the most important current topics in the fields of active, passive and organisational fire protection and will then answer questions from participants. The focus will be on fire protection concepts for special buildings, how the German states are dealing with the MVV-TB (Model Administrative Provisions – Technical Building Code), questions on technical regulations and a discussion of the second escape route. “In addition, the congress provides scope for important debates on the political and economic environment of the sector. It is a recognised forum where participants can also engage critically with their own specialist subject matter,” says Günter Ruhe, Managing Director of FeuerTrutz Network.
