Welcome Statement: Organisation

Petra Dehler-Udolph und Dieter Udolph

Directors of Messe Fulda GmbH
Organisation of RETTmobil

RETTmobil will continue her success story this year. The offerings are even more attractive, comprehensive and sustainable. An increased presence of the fire industry adds significance to the trade show.


The RETTmobil project has evolved from a small national to a renowned international event. At the first exhibition in 2001 around 3,500 visitors and 63 exhibitors had been counted. In 2015, there have been 23,250 trade visitors and 473 exhibitors. The 16th RETTmobil opens with a new record of more than 500 exhibitors.


Messe Galerie Fulda is back for three days as the major platform for all full-time and volunteer helpers and rescuers from rescue organisations and fire departments, for their professional and managerial staff, for users and decision-makers from ministries, municipalities and associations. 20 exhibition halls and a large open-air site are located on the expo grounds. Here are represented the manufacturers of ambulances and emergency vehicles, exhibitors of vehicle equipment, emergency medicine, apparel and radio equipment, publishing companies, trade associations, charities and many other sectors.


Mobility can be practiced in the offroad terrain for training and driving safety exercises. Here, current vehicle and rescue technology can be experienced first hand. The mobility sector is intensified and expanded in 2016.


The Working Group of Firefighters in Rescue Service (AG FReDi) again hosts the exhibition forum and training sessions. Participating again are all charities. The German Fire Services Association informs on the foundation "Help for Helpers", which deals with psychosocial emergency care. The Fulda fire department, together with other participating organisations, presents an exciting programme. An additional show provides information on current fire engines.


The education programme at two locations includes medical and rescue services trainings, seminars and workshops. Science director Professor Dr. Peter Sefrin again gathered competent speakers.


Dr. Rudolf Seiters, president of the German Red Cross, reassumes patronage of RETTmobil 2016. He has already been patron in 2006.


In co-operation with the city of Fulda additional parking space is made available. To all visitors a half-hourly free shuttle bus from Fulda central train station to the exhibition site is offered.


16 years of RETTmobil also is an important event for the conceptional sponsor – the Community of Interests of the Manufacturers of Ambulances and Emergency Vehicles (IKR e.V.). Members are well-known vehicle conversion and equipment producers from Europe, German carmakers such as Daimler and VW, suppliers to the industry and sponsors.
