VdS Fire Safety Cologne celebrates premiere at the Cologne Trade Fair on December 5-6 2012

Published:  12 April, 2012

VdS Fire Safety is the first fire protection trade fair in the German Rhineland and will include a specialist conference programme.

The VdS expert conferences "Fire detection and alarm systems" and "Fire protection in existing buildings" as well as the international conference "Fire extinguishing systems" will be held as part of the Fire Safety Cologne on 5th and 6th December at the Cologne exhibition hall.

Parallel to this, VdS is organising an accompanying fair with numerous exhibitors on the topics of fire extinguishing systems, fire detection systems, smoke and heat exhaust systems, structural fire protection and services.

"The exhibitions which typically accompany our conferences have meanwhile become so popular that we have always had to turn down clients due to lack of floor space," explains Ingeborg Schlosser, Head of the VdS Training Centre. "That is why we are now taking the next step: As Europe's top institute for fire protection, VdS is launching the first fire protection exhibition in the Rhineland."

"As with our conferences, we expect to attract the top experts in the sector," announces Schlosser. "Of course the technical exchange between fire protection professionals also takes centre stage along with the presentation of product innovations and services."

The VdS Fire Safety Cologne is geared towards planners, installers and operators of fire protection technology as well as towards persons responsible for fire protection in the industry or among authorities, service providers and insurers.
