IFBA Kassel

| International Specialized Exhibition for recovery and towing

The International Exhibition for Recovery and Towing (IFBA), held annually in Kassel, has steadily grown in popularity since its inception in 1973, both in Germany and internationally. It has now become one of the largest industry-specific exhibitions of its kind in Europe and is organized by VBA e.V. The IFBA caters to vehicle manufacturers, accessory producers, industry-specific trade, and users and has over the years established itself as an important industry meeting place, where VBA members, numerous contractual partners, and service providers can exchange ideas. The exhibition themes cover a variety of products and services that focus on recovery and towing.

Special highlights of the IFBA include attractive events and practical workshops dealing with everyday problems of towing companies. The venue, Kassel, offers a wide range of amenities and is easily accessible to visitors. Through its continuous success and growing importance, the IFBA significantly contributes to the further development and strengthening of the recovery and towing industry.

The IFBA takes place annually, and therefore for the 51st time previsibly in June 2025 in Kassel.
