Welcome Statement: IKR e.V.

Manfred Hommel

Chairman of the Community of Interests
of the Manufacturers of Ambulances and
Rescue Vehicles
(IKR e.V.)

Conceptual Sponsor of RETTmobil



16 years ago, we, the IKR e.V., have presented RETTmobil for the first time in Fulda. It all started in 2001 with 63 exhibitors and 3,500 trade visitors. In 2016 we expect more than 500 exhibitors from home and abroad and over 25,000 trade visitors.

The development in these years is impressive and confirms that we have been, and still are, on the right track with the event concept for exhibitors and visitors alike. We also expect more professional trade visitors especially from the fire sector.

The response in advance of this year's RETTmobil makes us very confident that we will welcome to Fulda more visitors from neighboring countries in Europe and from Asia. The political situation and the extreme crises, as well as the horrible terror attacks, confront rescue and relief organisations with incredible challenges.

A RETTmobil would not have existed without the active support of DFV. The successful partnership is in the 16th year. For this continuity we are very grateful. Since 2012 there is also a closer cooperation with the AGBF (Working Group of Professional Fire Services), which will also be represented this year with its own stand. The panel discussion and the exhibition-forum have been included in the RETTmobil programme upon the initiative of AGBF. Dr. Peter Seiters, President of the German Red Cross, this year assumes patronage of RETTmobil.

The city of Fulda and the State of Hesse offer a unique infrastructure for the concept of RETTmobil and the costs of accommodation are very reasonable for our exhibitors and visitors.

The workshops and medical-rescue service trainings successfully conducted in recent years, have confirmed the high demand and are carried out professionally this year.

Many well-known aid organisations will participate again.

The three pillars of exhibition, practical education, and experiencing mobility, stand for the success of RETTmobil, today and in the future. The members of the IKR e.V., which represent quality and safety from Germany, are looking forward to your visit and to good and constructive talks. Fulda is back for three days in the center of the entire rescue industry.
