FeuerTrutz Digital Trade Fair 2020
Am 30. September und 01. Oktober 2020 nahm STÖBICH als Aussteller an der erstmals in digitaler Form stattfindenden FeuerTrutz teil.
On new paths
At the networking platform used for this purpose, which had "Preventive fire protection with a difference!" as its guiding theme, trade visitors were able to find out about tried-and-tested and new approaches to solutions in the field of preventive fire protection, and this time they were able to make contact with the exhibitors in a slightly different way.
On the second day of the fair, our speaker Rainer Barth gave an exciting presentation on smoke barriers and smoke protection closures in the context of their harmonised standard.
A special challenge was the first STÖBICH fire test, which was broadcast online. In the half-hour video stream, STÖBICH broadcast live from the showroom in Goslar. The moderator of the livestream Dominik Rudolf informed the viewers about selected solutions and showed their possible applications. Walking through our smoke aisle, the viewers could experience the action almost up close on their computers. Afterwards, we went to the outdoor area, where the fire container was already running at full speed. Here, our heat-insulating fire protection fabric was demonstrated. Even though the spectators were not on site, they were able to watch live how Mr. Rudolf could safely place his hand on the surface of the textile, despite the more than 600 degrees prevailing inside the fire container.
The premiere of the trade fair, which was held digitally for the first time this year, was a success. According to the organisers, more than 1,500 trade visitors came to the digital platform to find out about current solutions and starting points from the 70 or so exhibitors. Our digitally represented stand crew was permanently involved in conversations and chats with the trade visitors on both days of the fair. Despite some technical problems, most visitors were very satisfied. According to the organisers, next year's FeuerTrutz will be held in Nuremberg again in the usual form. The digital presentation could nevertheless become a permanent feature of the future fair. We are already looking forward to FeuerTrutz 2021!
