VdS-FireSafety Cologne on 7 and 8 December 2022

In December, Koelnmesse will once again be the meeting place for the fire protection industry: the 9th VdS-FireSafety Cologne will take place here on 7 and 8 December 2022, combining a large international trade fair, themed forums in the exhibition hall, seven specialist conferences and a compact seminar. Current developments and trends in preventive structural, plant and organisational fire protection and their interaction with other safety areas will be highlighted. Around 100 national and international exhibitors and more than 3,000 visitors are expected on the two days.




International trade fair


At the only European trade fair with specific specialist conferences, the complete topic of preventive system, structural and organisational fire protection is presented. The fire protection industry uses the annual meeting to present its products and services.

Future Forum Fire Protection


What is currently changing in fire protection and which technologies are likely to play a role in the future? The "Future Forum Fire Protection" explores these questions. Here, expert speakers will provide insights into particularly innovative industry developments on both mornings. All trade fair visitors are invited to listen to the presentations of their choice, ask questions and discuss with the speakers.

Meeting place education and career


The meeting place education and career brings together providers of education and training and the high-calibre professional audience of the VdS-FireSafety Cologne. There are numerous opportunities for training providers and interested visitors to get in touch with each other.



Experience the second VdS-FireSafetyTalk live: Top-class experts discuss topics that are currently of particular concern to the fire protection industry - in 90-minute talk rounds on the stage of the Future Forum. Free of charge for all trade fair visitors!



The individual VdS specialist conferences are each intensively dedicated to one topic, so that a unique transfer of knowledge, focused on the desired type of system or structural fire protection, is ensured. The advanced training seminar for fire protection officers is specifically geared to the needs of fire protection officers.

Exhibitor Forum


Also freely accessible to all trade fair visitors is the exhibitor forum. Exhibitors present their products and solutions in 15- to 20-minute presentations. This opportunity is often used to present innovations to the general public for the first time.

Job board


Do you have vacancies or are you looking for a new job in fire protection? Then take advantage of the VdS-FireSafety Cologne job board: Current job advertisements are prominently presented at the job board in the exhibition hall and are also published on this website and in the exhibition catalogue.

Feedback on the VdS-FireSafety Cologne

„Die Organisation der VdS-BrandSchutzTage ist richtig gut und professionell – auch schon im Vorfeld, beim Messeaufbau. Besonders wichtig ist für uns die Qualität der Besucher: Durch die parallel zur Messe stattfindenden Fachtagungen sind hier die wirklich interessierten Zielgruppen vertreten, zum Beispiel BSB, Versicherungsmitarbeiter, Sachverständige und Gutachter. Und die Zahl der Besucher ist über die Jahre deutlich gestiegen, das freut uns natürlich auch. Es geht uns bei unserem Messeauftritt nicht so sehr um direkte Verkäufe, vielmehr erreichen wir damit einen sehr hohen Bekanntheitsgrad, und das ist sehr wertvoll.“
