Trade fair for fire services, civil protection and disaster management
The 18th edition of the FLORIAN trade fair for fire services, civil protection and disaster management was once again held in Dresden, one of Europe’s finest and most attractive cities, from 10 to 12 October 2019. In conjunction with the aescutec emergency services forum, the fair was aimed at procurement departments, decision-makers in fire services, civil protection and disaster management, emergency services, and their staff and task forces, thereby addressing the idea of across-the-board co-operation between all emergency services during natural disasters, major events, multiple-vehicle accidents, nautical disasters, and epidemics.
The FLORIAN presented the technologies of the future to members of the fire brigade, emergency services and civil defence units, and discussed developments in hazard control, disaster management and key points relating to the co-operation between organisations. The fair also provided an extensive programme of (advanced) training events for all members of the fire brigade, the THW (German federal civil protection and disaster management organisation), emergency services, and local-government decision-makers.
The 2019 edition had a record number of both exhibitors – with 270 from 12 countries – and visitors – more than 20,000 guests, corresponding to an increase of 20%. Growth, an attractive venue, and the fact that it is the only trade fair for fire services held during the year are all good reasons working in FLORIAN’s favour.
