Convention Center | Hall 2

Beta-Verlag – the Bonn-based publisher of the respected trade journal CRISIS PREVENTION (CP) – has been successfully organizing conferences on civil protection for several year s, and is now, for the very first time, staging a CP symposium as part of INTERSCHUTZ.

The symposium will be held at the Convention Center, hall 2. The presentations and sessions will run on both days. In the afternoon attendees will have the opportunity meeting up with representatives of companies that provide the vehicles, technologies and services necessary for modern civil protection at INTERSCHUTZ.



In terms of topics, the first day will deal with cross-border cooperation in disaster situations, focusing on Germany, Switzerland and the US.

The second day will focus on the civil protection challenges posed by extremes of weather, such as floods, droughts and wildfires. These topics are becoming increasingly important in light of climate change and require coordination and connection between and among aid agencies and government institutions at both national and international level.

The civil protection symposium is aimed primarily at leaders from public-sector authorities and agencies with responsibility for safety and security and decision-makers from fire departments and aid organizations.


The full program for the civil protection symposium at INTERSCHUTZ is available as pdf download (German). The symposium will be moderated by Benno Fritzen, a civil protection expert and former Fire Chief of the German city of Münster.

Presentation languages will be German or English.


We would be delighted to welcome you to this year's CP Symposium at Interschutz 2022.
