NürnbergMesse and FeuerTrutz Network have jointly decided to postpone FeuerTrutz 2020 from 24 and 25 June, following discussions with industry representatives.
The tenth edition of the International Trade Fair with Congress for Preventive Fire Protection will be held on 30 September and 1 October 2020.
A good three months before the scheduled date, the responsibles are thus reacting to shifts within the trade fair calendar, caused by the spread of the coronavirus, and are setting the course for a plannable event in autumn 2020.
The postponement of FeuerTrutz is in connection with a change of date by the joint trade fairs FENSTERBAU FRONTALE and HOLZ-HANDWERK. In view of the increasing spread of the coronavirus, this trade fair duo has been postponed from March to June. The resulting logistical and organisational adjustments lead to the rescheduling of FeuerTrutz: FeuerTrutz 2020 will take place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg on 30 September and 1 October.
This decision is also based on the close feedback of the organizers with customers and industry representatives. “Together with the exhibition advisory board and other industry representatives, we have come to the conclusion that a postponement to autumn and early communication best meet the requirements of exhibitors, visitors as well as congress and seminar participants.
“Also with a view to the industry’s calendar: We are thus creating planning security and the best possible framework conditions for all participants for the diverse establishment and expansion of business relationships as well as the professional exchange on preventive fire protection. Ultimately, the trust of our customers and partners is crucial for us as organizers,” says Stefan Dittrich, Director FeuerTrutz, NürnbergMesse and André Gesellchen, Programme and Congress Director FeuerTrutz Network.
“The FeuerTrutz trade fair with its Congress for preventive fire protection is the most important industry exhibition of the year for us. For this reason, we are pleased that the exhibition will take place in Nuremberg in autumn and will present our future-oriented fire protection solutions and services to the highly qualified national and international trade public.”

“As participants of the first hour, we welcome the implementation now planned for autumn, as the fair has been a permanent fixture in Stöbich’s programme of events since its baptism by fire in 2011. As Europe’s most important trade fair, which is dedicated purely to the topic of preventive fire protection, FeuerTrutz is in our opinion a popular and much frequented meeting place for industry experts. We are looking forward to our participation and many visitors at the new date! “Olaf Grunenberg-Thiele, Head of Operative Marketing, Stöbich Holding GmbH & Co. KG
2021 FeuerTrutz takes place on 23 and 24 June.
