RETTmobil becomes of legal age


RETTmobil is becoming of legal age. For the eighteenth time, the entire rescue sector meets in Fulda from 16th to 18th of May. In 2001, everything started with 3,500 trade show visitors and 63 exhibitors. This year we are expecting more than 500 exhibitors from Germany and abroad and well over 27,000 visitors.


The development throughout these years is impressive and confirms that we have been and still are on the right path with the event concept for exhibitors and visitors alike. We especially expect a larger visitor attendance of experts from the fire services sector.


The extreme hotspots of crisis and appalling attacks pose unbelievable challenges for rescue and aid organisations. Furthermore, the world political situation is anything but stable. This year, we are expecting larger numbers of visitors from neighbouring European countries, the United States of America, China and India.


There would not have been a RETTmobil without the active support of the DFV. The successful partnership is now in the 17th year, and we are very grateful for this continuity. Since 2012, there has also been closer cooperation with the AGBF (Working group of the Professional Fire Brigades), which will be represented with its own stand this year. The panel discussion and the trade fair forum were included in the RETTmobil programme upon the initiative of the AGBF. Dr. h.c. Frank-Jürgen Weise, President of Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V.Hartmut Ziebs, has accepted patronage this year.


The geographical location of Fulda, 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 providing exemplary support to RETTmobil since 2001.


The successful workshops and further training courses for medical rescue services that have been held successfully in recent years have confirmed the high demand and will be carried out professionally this year as well.


Once again this year, many well-known aid organisations will be represented.


The three pillars of the trade show, advanced training and further education, as well as experiencing mobility, stand for the success of RETTmobil, today and in the future. The members of IKR e.V., who stand for quality and safety from Germany, are looking forward to your visit and to good and constructive discussions. For three days Fulda is once again the focal point of the entire rescue industry.
