No RETTmobil exhibition in 2021

The RETTmobil exhibition 2021 has to be cancelled. The original date from 5th to 7th May of this year is just as impossible to keep as an alternative date at the beginning of June that has meanwhile be planned. The next RETTmobil exhibition will therefore take place in Fulda from 11th to 13th May 2022.

„We, as a trade fair company, as well as the IKR e.V., as the conceptual sponsor, are following the current corona situation very closely and are constantly in close contact with the responsible public authorities“, says Manfred Hommel, Executive Director of Messe RETTmobil International GmbH. „Until recently, we hoped to be able to at least realize the alternative date in June. By the current state, this will not be responsible. Fortunately, the number of infections is declining significantly for some time, that has given us hope. Even the vaccinations, despite the suboptimal start, will certainly bring some relaxation in the next few weeks and months. Unfortunately, it will be too late for us. Also in June, a too few part of the population will be vaccinated to justify such an event as the RETTmobil exhibition. With a heavy heart, we have to announce that the RETTmobil exhibition will unfortunately be cancelled also this year“, says Hommel.

An alternative date at the beginning of June was envisaged in order to gain time and to be able to observe the developments for a little longer. „Our exhibitors and logistics partners need planning reliability. So we had to decide now. In our estimation, it would be irresponsible to hold an event with more than 400 exhibiting companies and tens of thousands of visitors at the moment“, Manfred Hommel explains the decision.

The RETTmobil exhibition is the leading exhibition for the entire rescue at home and abroad. That is one of the reason why we set particularly high standards for ourselves and our responsibility“, explains Hommel. Most of the people who come to us in Fulda are directly confronted with the consequences of the corona pandemic and work on the front lines. Their health needs to be protected, and that’s why we look forward to seeing you again next year when the RETTmobil exhibition will take place in Fulda from 11th to 13th May 2022.

The President of the German Red Cross e.V., Gerda Hasselfeldt, becomes the patron of the RETTmobil exhibition 2021

Greetings from the President of the German Red Cross e.V., Gerda Hasselfeldt, regarding the RETTmobil exhibition 2021

The RETTmobil exhibition 2021 is special in two respects: it is the first one since the 20th anniversary of the exhibition in 2020 and it takes place for the first time since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Both are reasons to pause and learn from previous experiences. It’s a pleasure for me to become the patron of this international leading exhibition for rescue and mobility in this special year.

What was previously a possible scenario that experts pointed out and prepared for, is suddenly a reality. Everything that characterizes the Civil Protection in Germany proved one’s worth in the current pandemic situation: the experienced interaction of volunteers and employees, the collaboration between the aid organizations as well as with the public health authorities and the German armed forces. All involved persons contribute valuably and confirm thereby that in the federal system a good and successful together is necessary as well as possible.

This is also an occasion to say thanks to all those who work every day to save people’s lives. The RETTmobil is your exhibition: the exhibition for life-savers. The RETTmobil exhibition 2021 will present technical and digital developments. The academic training which will be also available online for the first time, will focus on hygiene and infection protection in rescue.

After the cancellation in 2020 due to the pandemic, I am pleased that under the currently ruling special conditions a trendsetting exhibition with an academic training will be realized and makes possible the personal exchange.

I wish the RETTmobil exhibition 2021 every success!
