Life-saver exhibition with new records
Success record of the 19th Rettmobil 2019 in Fulda - The unique exhibition of lifesavers
The best RETTmobil of all times has set new records: 30,619 visitors from all over the world attended the 19th edition of the leading international trade show for rescue and mobility from May 15 to 17 in Fulda. Thus the sonic barrier of 30,000 visitors was broken for the first time. The record number of 545 exhibitors from 20 nations also confirms the global significance and dramatic topicality of the unique Lifesavers show of Life-Savers.
The success of the three-day forum is based on four pillars: Trade fair, advanced training, mobility and quality. Everyone is highly satisfied: the public, the exhibitors and those responsible for the globally recognised trade show, which once again attracted a great deal of media interest. According to the fair management, RETTmobil 2019 was not only a platform for the global community of helpers and rescuers, but also proof of the European idea. You can hardly find so many exhibitors from Europe at any other major event. The USA and Asia were also represented.
The balance sheet in figures
The biggest run on the industry event was registered on the second day of the fair, Thursday, with 11,000 trade visitors. On Wednesday there were over 10,000 people, on the last day the same number again. For comparison, the figures for the 18th RETTmobil 2018: 540 exhibitors and 29,618 visitors. The total balance of all 19 trade fairs: just under 7600 exhibitors and over 375,000 visitors.
The exhibitors presented themselves on the over 70,000 square metre site with 20 halls and a large outdoor area. In the optimised off-road area, fire brigades, the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief and the German Federal Armed Forces demonstrated their skills in exciting activities. The 19th RETTmobil 2019, trend-setting and contemporary, documented the high standard of technical and medical equipment of the internationally exemplary rescue service in Germany. The highly topical events in the field of further training were fully booked at an early stage. For the Fulda fire department, RETTmobil provided an optimal advertising and communication platform.
"At the highest level"
Manfred Hommel, chairman of the Interessengemeinschaft der Hersteller von Kranken- und Rettungsfahrzeugen (IKR), the association of manufacturers of ambulances and rescue vehicles, the conceptual sponsor of the exhibition, is proud of the huge success of the "world's best and most important forum for innovation, safety, quality, competence and further training". The quality of services and products is outstanding, said Hommel, who attested the trade fair "the highest level of presentation in all areas". There is nothing comparable to the Rettmobil anywhere in the world. Now it is important to turn the globally unique German rescue system into an export hit.
"Very satisfied in every respect"
Petra Dehler-Udolph and Dieter Udolph, Managing Directors of Messe Fulda GmbH, are also "very satisfied" and have been responsible for the planning, preparation and implementation of the solitary exhibition right from the start. All exhibitors have spoken extremely positively about the stands, the presentation, the quality of the services and products, the visit and the organisation. There is already a "very great demand" for the 20th RETTmobil 2020, the preparations for which have already begun. The trade show organisers pointed out the importance of RETTmobil for the hospitality sector in Fulda. The trade show could open up excellent opportunities for the city of Fulda in terms of company settlements and new jobs.
IKR Chairman Hommel reported that during the fair many transactions had not only been initiated but also signed. In addition, excellent contacts had been established on an international level. These facts opened up great prospects for RETTmobil's future. Digitalisation and electromobility are also on the advance in the rescue sector.
The top-class supporting programme with very well attended lectures at the trade show forum as well as the seminars and workshops of the medical rescue service have once again proven their worth. Professor Dr. Peter Sefrin was responsible again. The Fulda fire department had prepared an exciting advanced training programme for emergency forces: Demonstrations with rescue from emergency situations with hydraulic and pneumatic rescue equipment.
The trade show was accompanied by local, regional and international media and above all by the trade press. Journalists from Germany, France, Italy and the USA were accredited.The 20th RETTmobil 2020 will take place as an anniversary event from May 13 to 15 at Messe Galerie in Fulda.
