Hanover. "The decision was not an easy one", says Bernd Heinold, INTERSCHUTZ Project Manager at Deutsche Messe AG "but since, from a current perspective, we were concerned about whether the INTERSCHUTZ Community Days would completely fulfil expectations and, above all, also justify the high level of commitment shown by all those involved, we have decided not to hold the event in Münster this year". To all who were involved in the preparations, many thanks and, looking ahead, the message that we are now planning the premiere of the INTERSCHUTZ Community Days next May in Magdeburg - again in combination with the Annual Conference of the Association for the Promotion of German Fire Protection - vfdb."

Daniel Berger, who with his team is responsible for the FireFit Championships, which form a central element of the INTERSCHUTZ Community Days, is also already looking ahead: "We would have liked to present ourselves in Münster, but we are already looking forward to the event in Magdeburg and will start joint planning with the INTERSCHUTZ team in the near future”.
