No. 1 gathering for the fire protection community gets under way
On 30 September and 1 October, FeuerTrutz 2020 again presents the entire supply chain for preventive fire protection, in a digital format this year. However, although this is a virtual event, NürnbergMesse and FeuerTrutz Network continue to be committed to the professional expertise, product presentations and networking that are exactly what the industry has come to expect from the gathering for many years now. Participants can look forward to more than 70 exhibitors, nine of them platinum partners. The accompanying Fire Protection Congress will deliver professional expertise at its finest in more than 40 exclusive lectures. There will also be a wealth of opportunities for networking and talking shop with other participants and exhibiting companies, facilitated by an intelligent matchmaking tool.
“We are extremely pleased about the impressive commitment of the industry to preventive fire protection. Participants can look forward to a high-quality digital event,” explains Stefan Dittrich, Director FeuerTrutz at NürnbergMesse.
As well as the more than 70 exhibitors, over 1,500 participants have also pre-registered for the launch of FeuerTrutz Digital 2020, while over 600 congress delegates have signed up for the Fire Protection Congress. “The balanced mix of exhibitor forums, product presentations and congress is set to impress the professional community once again this year. The only thing that has changed in 2020 is the format of the event, but not the content, the innovative products and services showcased by exhibitors, or the opportunity to enjoy professional dialogue of the highest standard. The FeuerTrutz family gathering will take place online this year,” says André Gesellchen, Head of the Fire Protection Programme at FeuerTrutz Network.
Matchmaking, networking, new products and professional expertise
Even in the digital environment, professional dialogue, knowledge transfer and the presentation of new and exciting products will continue to take centre-stage at the event. Using various communication tools like chat and video calls, staff from the exhibiting companies can contact participants, i.e. customers and partners. The outstanding feature of this process is the integrated matchmaking tool. After registering, all participants complete a short onboarding process in the form of a brief questionnaire. By answering the questions, you define your individual profile and show other participants who you are, what you are offering, and what products or solutions you are interested in. Based on this information, the underlying algorithm compares the data with those of all other participants in the event and then suggests suitable business contacts that match your requirements precisely. Naturally, this entire process complies with the GDPR.
Outstanding supporting programme with inspiring presentations
This year's supporting programme boasts a large range of highly interesting presentations by exhibitors about their products and services for passive, active and organisational fire protection.

Fire Protection Congress
2020 – high-end specialist knowledge for experts
The theme of the two-day Fire Protection Congress is: “Can a solution be found? Fire protection in hospitals under scrutiny”. In around 40 vendor-neutral presentations, the high-calibre professional congress brings delegates up to speed with developments in preventive fire protection. The focus will be on the most important regulations as well as new solutions and trends. The special risks and requirements for preventive fire protection in hospitals will be explored alongside the following topics, for example:
- Second escape route in existing housing stock
- Timber-framed multi-storey residential buildings
- MIndBauRL 2019 (Model Directive on structural fire protection in industrial buildings): new solutions for industrial buildings
- Deviating from CE-marked building products
- How to deal with deviations, simplifications, compensatory measures and engineering methods in the fire protection environment.
