Feedback on the VdS Conferences

The event concept of the BrandSchutzTage including the trade fair was really felicitous and additionaly of high benefit to me. The "advanced training course for safety officers" by VdS, which I attended for the first time, was a personal gain in knowledge in the field of fire protection. The contents of the conference as well as the speakers were well selected and sent me on my way with lots of stimuli. The practical approach and the consequential learning effect are the determining factors that I will visit this event again. As I got my safety officer training at VdS Schadenverhütung and appreciated the quality, I will return to the conference and participate in other training courses, too. (E.g. drawing-up of ground plans for fire brigade use). For my active work in the company, the expert conference has delivered lots of stimuli and ideas that I implemented in workaday life (to be precise regarding Li-batteries).

For several years I have visited almost regularly the Technical Conference "Brandmeldeanlagen" given in the Maternushaus so far. In my opinion the organiser's decision to present this Technical Conference within the scope of the exhibition VdS-BrandSchutzTage in Koelnmesse is really reasonable and felicitous. The lectures were very interesting and properly selected in view of topicality. My favourite was the lecture on testing of the control matrix held by Mr. Lucka. The visit of the fire protection fair polished off my participation in the BrandSchutzTage. Furthermore, I used the opportunity to exchange experiences with participants in the expert conference for safety officers, which took place there at the same time. The visit of the next VdS-BrandSchutzTage is a fixture in my calendar and I feel free to recommend this event.

Since I finished my training at VdS Schadenverhütung to become a safety officer in 1998, I have visited further education events and conferences of VdS at regular intervals. Even in my present professional activity of a fire protection expert and as a member of the technical committee of the chamber of commerce and industry to give expert opinions on applicants for the license to work as expert inspector on fire extinguishing systems as required by building law I still benefit from the participation in VdS events. Especially the VdS Conference on fire extinguishing systems with its topicality imparts precious stimuli for practical use. In addition to the topics of the expert conference, the surroundings are of importance to me. Whether this is the annual meeting with colleagues on the eve of the event or communication during the breaks - the overall concept of an expert conference with corresponding trade fair leaves nothing to be desired. In my calendar the expert conference on fire extinguishing systems will always be a fixture.

Last year I visited the VdS Conference on smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems for the first time and was perfectly satisfied. Several lectures had been so impressive that I promoted them in our company with the result that the speakers Mr. Goertz and Mr. Hegger got the opportunity to hold their lectures once again on the occasion of our sales conference. I would be pleased to participate again this year.
