Current events

Trade show VdS-FireSafety Cologne
The attractive mix of international trade fair, first-class conferences, thematic forums and a new edition of the VdS-FireSafetyTalk (VdS-BrandSchutzTalk) on the trade fair stage is expected to attract more than 4,000 interested trade visitors again. International focus As in every second year, VdS-FireSafety Cologne will have an international focus. Among other things, the renowned expert conference “Fire Extinguishing Systems” will offer an international program and simultaneous German-English translation over two days. Best environment for exhibitors With its versatile program, the VdS-FireSafety Cologne has been one of the most important industry events for fire protection systems and preventive structural and organizational fire protection for years. It offers companies optimal opportunities to present their products and services to a high-caliber expert audience. Multifaceted program All exhibitors are invited to conduct live demonstrations. Interesting demonstrations can be included as stops on the guided tours of the trade show. The exhibitor forum in the exhibition hall also offers an attractive platform for presenting product, technology and service innovations. Further advantages are the free exhibition tickets for customers and the perfect networking opportunities with national and international participants. Larger exhibition hall in 2023 Thanks to its growing success, VdS-FireSafety Cologne 2023 will move to koelnmesse’s larger exhibition hall 10.1, which is located directly opposite the hall 11.1 used to date. Advantages: Hall 10.1 is larger than the previous one, so it offers more space for stand areas and live demonstrations. Good news for all those who were unable to get a stand in the fully booked hall in December 2022. In addition, it enables covered delivery and thus facilitates set-up. The hall ceiling is higher, creating additional creative possibilities for stand planning. The congress halls with the expert conferences taking place at the same time are still right next door. This means that visitors to the conferences will still have short distances to cover.
