Dirk Aschenbrenner, President of the German Fire Protection Association, also spoke at the Saturday press conference. His take on INTERSCHUTZ 2015:
“The event surpassed all expectations – not only in terms of the statistics, but also due to the remarkable atmosphere here at the sector's flagship fair. Our goal of making the world a bit safer has been achieved in outstanding fashion at the biggest-ever INTERSCHUTZ."
Hans-Peter Kröger, President of the German Fire Service Association (DFV) highlighted the special character of the event:
"INTERSCHUTZ is the ultimate success story. Rather than being just a platform for selling products and services, it has become a cult event for fire services everywhere! This fair has given our firefighting volunteers of every age bracket, from kids on up to retirees, a huge shot of inspiration and motivation for the years ahead."
And in the words of Dr. Bernd Scherer, Managing Director of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA):
"INTERSCHUTZ is more than just a trade fair. It’s a network of people – and this is ultimately what drives everything we do. It is an opportunity for all of those 'helping hands' to come together as a community built on close ties and mutual trust."
