REAS 2023 to sell out: the fire-fighting sector is growing
The 2023 edition of REAS, the International Exhibition for Rescue, Fire Fighting, Disaster Relief and Security, is approaching which, from 6 to 8 October, will bring together all the main players in the world linked to emergency management at Centro Fiera Montichiari. An appointment now in its twenty-second edition which will involve bodies, government bodies, associations and voluntary groups, with the presence at the fair of the most important manufacturing and commercial companies dealing with fire prevention, civil protection and first aid.
In terms of exhibition space, next October’s event is about to sell out. The excellent results of the 2022 edition favored the reconfirmation of all the main companies from last year, to which was added a significant growth in the fire-fighting sector. This is a constant in recent years: the Montichiari show has once again become a point of reference for the major international players in the sector who participate with the aim of presiding over the Italian market. The event will give the opportunity to present new models and equipment, with dedicated test areas and display of special vehicles also in the external area.
Internationalization is one of the strategic objectives that REAS has pursued over the years, thanks above all to the partnership with INTERSCHUTZ of Fiera Hannover which favors the presence of buyers and delegations from abroad at the fair, with concrete repercussions for the territory.
REAS 2023 will also focus on technologies at the service of civil protection and first aid, a sector in which aids and means intended for people with disabilities will play a significant role. A new macro-area, on the other hand, will be dedicated to occupational safety. The aim is to reward the activity of the numerous emergency companies that develop products and devices that are also used for safety in the workplace.
In recent weeks, the program of conferences and seminars is being completed, which will focus on content and key topics for civil protection and fire prevention. REAS will be, as per consolidated tradition, an opportunity to take stock of forest fire prevention which, every year, requires increasingly punctual management, due not only to the peculiarities of the Italian territory which expose wooded areas to a high risk but also to the negative consequences of increasing drought and average temperatures. In addition to being a meeting point between the institutions involved in emergency management, REAS will offer an overview of the new technologies available to operators starting, for example, with the use of drones not only in rescue operations but also in monitoring and prevention. For operators and volunteers who participate in REAS every year, visiting the fair means investing in their own training. Increasing one’s technical background and perfecting operational and regulatory knowledge is essential for those who are part of groups, associations and institutions that take part in the national emergency management protocol. REAS will offer a program of conferences, demonstration sessions, round tables, thematic corners and contests that focus on training.
