Information on the Conference

An exciting look at home and abroad: The 12th International Conference on Fire Extinguishing Systems highlights a wide range of current topics with experience reports and solutions from various European countries. It also offers plenty of opportunity for international exchange.

As always, there is a lot to report on, because new risks in production and storage, as well as experience from damage and the practical application of fire extinguishing systems, ensure that the systems and the associated regulations are continuously being developed.

The conference will focus on new developments in national and international regulations for sprinkler, water mist, gas extinguishing and oxygen reduction systems, as well as on the topics of earthquake safety and corrosion in water and gas extinguishing systems.

Insurers, experts, operators and installers of fire extinguishing systems will present interesting case studies and protection concepts for special risks – from flammable liquids to lithium-ion battery systems and special storage concepts.

The conference will be held as an international conference with simultaneous translation German-English.

Target groups

Designers, manufacturers, installers and users of fire extinguishing systems, fire and safety engineers, experts and fire officers in industry, administration and service providing companies, fire departments and approval authorities, loss prevention officers of the insurance industry, all parties dealing with matters of fire protection
