What to expect at INTERSCHUTZ 2022


INTERSCHUTZ will take place between June 20-25 2022 in Hannover, Germany. 

INTERSCHUTZ is one of the world leading trade fairs for the fire and rescue services, civil protection, safety and security. It is a magnet for companies from all around the world seeking to develop new markets for their solutions. It’s also the go-to show for pros wanting to learn about the latest innovations and share expertise with their international peers. INTERSCHUTZ is in a class of its own internationally when it comes to the quality and number of visitors and exhibitors it attracts. 

INTERSCHUTZ covers the full range of products and services for the fire and rescue services, civil protection, safety and security industries. 

At the same time, INTERSCHUTZ is very much a business show. It’s an event for the world’s providers of fire and rescue services, civil protection, and safety and security solutions and shapes their business cycles. That’s why anyone who wants to learn about the latest emergency management innovations and developments heads for Hannover when the gates open on INTERSCHUTZ. 

INTERSCHUTZ is a team effort between Deutsche Messe, the German associations vfdb, DFV and VDMA, the show’s commercial exhibitors, non-commercial exhibitors such as fire and rescue service organisations and disaster relief organisations, and the show’s many visitors from the professional and volunteer fire services, plant fire services, rescue services and the disaster relief sector. 

The event was meant to take place in December 2020 but was unfortunately postponed due to the pandemic.  

“INTERSCHUTZ takes place every five years. The community of people involved in fire and rescue services as well as civil protection has been eagerly awaiting the next edition of the event. Against this background, the decision to reschedule was a difficult one. But a series of intensive discussions with our partners and exhibitors as well as representatives of key visitor target groups made clear to us that this move was unavoidable. A staging of the event in the summer of 2022 has been welcomed by all stakeholders. This is the only way we can offer everyone the necessary planning security for their trade fair appearance. A flagship fair like this one thrives on a large number of international visitors and, in particular, face-to-face encounters. Based on the current international travel restrictions, our clients would not be able to adequately prepare for such a major, globally significant trade fair,” comments Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Deutsche Messe Managing Board. 

Exhibition topics 

Civil Protection: Disaster management mobilizations pose major logistical as well as technical challenges. Solutions for meeting those challenges – everything from Tents for stay, accommodation or sanitation purposes, mobile power supply or flood protection – will be on show in the civil protection display area at INTERSCHUTZ 2022. (Hall 17) 

Fire Fighting: Fire brigades from around the globe are faced with an ever-changing set of catastrophic scenarios. Major emergencies caused by natural disasters and climate change require closer interaction among the various players. INTERSCHUTZ showcases vehicles and equipment, hardware and software as well as research and development – up close and first-hand. Digital technologies and connected operations in the face of an emergency will be displayed at exhibition stands and discussed in related conferences. (Halls 11, 12, 13, 27, Pavilions 32-35) 

Communications & Control Center Solutions: Increasing urban densification and continuously changing operational scenarios demand innovative digital solutions and seamless cooperation between all players involved. Within the new Digitization & Transformation display sector, current and future requirements for networked solutions will be put forward and discussed. (Hall 16) 

Rescue Services: The rescue services are faced with a number of new challenges and developments, not least demographic change, telemedicine, a skills shortage, and large-scale catastrophic incidents. They are under constant pressure to scrutinize their strategic direction and to keep up to date with the latest technologies. That is why INTERSCHUTZ is so important. It provides a comprehensive survey of the latest emergency-sector products. (Halls 17, 26) 

Protective Equipment: The requirements for personal protective equipment are becoming more and more individual. From smart textiles to integrated communication solutions for fire protection, rescue services and civil protection, at INTERSCHUTZ you’ll find the entire range of PPE for all areas of application. (Halls 11, 14, 15) 

Fire Prevention: Modern building designs, bigger dimensions and densely built-up areas are leading to new requirements for preventive fire protection. INTERSCHUTZ covers all the relevant areas, from planning to implementation. Here you can swap ideas with specialists from around the world within the framework of this, the industry’s networking hub for preventive fire protection. (Halls 12, 13)
