RETTmobil in Fulda for the 19th time


For the 19th time, the entire rescue industry will come together in Fulda from May 15th to 17th. In 2001, everything started with just 3,500 trade visitors and 63 exhibitors. This year we again expect over 540 exhibitors from Germany and abroad and well over 29,000 trade visitors.


The development of the RETTmobil trade show is also due to the tireless commitment of Petra and Dieter Udolph. The constant dialogue with the city of Fulda and the local authorities makes a major contribution to the success of the event. The visitors appreciate the fair admission price and the free parking on site.


The world is changing very rapidly and the trouble spots are not diminishing; on the contrary, the political situation is more uncertain than ever. Major events and climate change pose great challenges for aid providers all over the world. This makes a meeting once a year in Fulda all the more important in order to discuss current issues with experts and to look for solutions. RETTmobil is the best platform for this.


There would not have been a RETTmobil without the active support of the DFV. The successful partnership is entering its 20th year, and we are very grateful for this continuity. Since the year 2012 there is also a closer cooperation with the AGBF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Berufsfeuerwehren), which will be represented again this year with their stand. The panel discussion and the fair forum were included to the RETTmobil programme upon the initiative of AGBF. This year, Mr. Georg Khevenhüller, President of Malteser Hilfsdienst, has taken over patronage.


The geographical location of Fulda as well as the unique infrastructure and cost structure are decisive success factors for exhibitors and visitors of RETTmobil. The City of Fulda and the State of Hesse have been exemplary supporters of RETTmobil since 2001.


The workshops and medical rescue service training courses successfully implemented in recent years have confirmed the great demand and will also be carried out professionally this year.


This year almost all well-known relief organisations will also be represented again.


The three pillars of the trade fair, continuing education and training, and experiencing mobility stand for the success of RETTmobil, both today and in the future. The members of the IKR e.V., who stand for quality and safety from Germany, are looking forward to your visit and to good and constructive discussions. Fulda will once again be the focus of the entire rescue industry for three days.
