RETTmobil – Something for every emergency worker!
In a few weeks (10 – 12 May), RETTmobil 2023 will be opening its gates. We expect more than 450 domestic and international exhibitors, as well as thousands of specialist visitors. We are laying much greater emphasis on work for fire brigades, which is why the area of the trade fair has been increased by ca. 4,000 square metres. The patron this year is Boris Rhein, Prime Minister of the Federal State of Hesse.
After it had become clear that exhibitors still have a lively interest in RETTmobil, Messe RETTmobil International GmbH discussed the best procedure with the city authorities in Fulda and then decided to expand the exhibition area by about 4,000 square metres. For the first time, more than 450 exhibitors will present their products in 20 mobile halls, as well as in the extensive outside area and in the areas for exhibitions and practical shows.
We have excited a great deal of interest from fire brigades and this is the principle reason that the overall demand has increased so much. For example, in 2023 we will have presentations from more experts in the construction of fire engines. Moreover, we will hear from more service providers and companies specialising in software and digital technology, who regard RETTmobil as an increasingly important platform. The public can look forward to companies from more than 20 countries, including new specialists in ambulance construction from Spain and Great Britain.
There will be a second entrance to the trade fair by the off-road track. This will ensure that there is a direct link to the new area. This will take the visitors to the new hall. This is about 700 square metres in size and will concentrate on fire brigades. There will be an area here for presentations and displays; the host here is the LUKAS RESCUE LEAGUE and the theme is “Technical Support for Fire Brigades and Ambulance Services”. At the same site, SAFETY TOUR will present a workshop on “E-Mobility and Special Risks”.
On the off-road track, German Red Cross will present an ambulance with a Unimog chassis. You will be able to take a ride in this. It is also planned to show how a forest caterpillar can be used when there is a forest fire.
Aside from the specialist trade fair, visitors can once again register for courses on ambulance medicine, practical workshops and discussions with experts (“Meet the Experts”). The themes extend from management and communication in emergencies to digital solutions in many situations to psychosocial emergency care for children and preclinical ultrasound.
The patron of RETTmobil 2023 will be Boris Rhein, Prime Minister of the Federal State of Hesse. Minister Rhein is expected to attend the opening ceremony on 10 May in the grounds of the trade fair.
RETTmobil will be open on all three days between 09:00 and 17:00 hours. Entry tickets and tickets for the specialist program can be ordered on line under https://rettmobil.ticket.io. Groups of ten or more emergency ambulance workers in training will be offered a discount. Groups who intend to take advantage of this discount should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before the trade fair starts – and must include confirmation from their training unit.
There will be a free bus shuttle service from Fulda Central Station to the grounds of the trade fair. Busses will run at 15 minute intervals between 08:30 and 10:00 hours and then in 30 minute intervals. As usual, visitors who come by car can park free of charge on the grounds of the trade fair.
