【DE】aquanale and FSB 2021: Good omens for a successful restart

Trade fair duo with 470 exhibiting companies from 45 countries Secure trade fair participation with many facilitations


In three weeks, the trade fair double aquanale, International Trade Fair for Sauna.Pool.Ambiente, and FSB, International Trade Fair for Open Space, Sports and Exercise Facilities, will start, and the signs for a successful restart of the international sports and leisure industry are more than optimistic. The re-start was excellently successful, the first trade fairs at the Cologne location this autumn went very well and, above all, made one thing clear: trade fairs are indispensable as a business and networking platform. And the current Corona Protection Ordinance makes planning and participation easier for all trade fair participants of aquanale and FSB,” says Bettina Frias, director of the trade fair duo.


So that the trade fair double aquanale and FSB from 26th to 29th October 2021 will be a successful and safe trade fair experience for all trade fair participants, Koelnmesse takes into account all imaginable parameters and measures with its proven safety and hygiene concept #B-SAFE4business. The 3G rule applies throughout the exhibition center – vaccinated, recovered, tested. Access to the exhibition center is only via digital, date-related day tickets, which are purchased in the form of a QR code via the ticket shop on the websites of the aquanale and FSB. In conjunction with a recognized digital receipt of complete vaccination, testing or recovery, waiting times at the entrances are excluded and safe participation in the fair is guaranteed for everyone. It is also still necessary to wear a medical mask and a minimum distance of 1.50 meters. At the same time, many limiting requirements have been significantly simplified: for example, contact tracking at the exhibition stand and in trade fair gastronomy is eliminated and a visitor count on the stand areas is not absolutely necessary. Furthermore, the flat-rate personal limitation at the stand is omitted, whereby attention should be paid to compliance with the minimum distance. The mouthguard may generally be removed at fixed seats or standing places. It may also be accepted for food. The setup of spit protection is no longer necessary at fixed seats and standing places. In addition, the placement of exhibits and information counters at the stand borders is again possible as well as “Get Together” event of exhibitors at their booth.


Good conditions for the trade fair duo aquanale and FSB: a total of around 470 exhibiting companies from over 45 countries are expected for both trade fairs. On a gross exhibition area of approx. 52,000 square meters, they show the latest products and designs for modern, sustainable and innovative swimming pool and wellness construction as well as all topics related to open space, playground equipment, outdoor fitness, sports equipment, sports floors and stadium infrastructure. The presence of market-leading companies that use the leading international industry fairs as important initiators is correspondingly strong. For example, aquanal market leaders such as Fluidra, RivieraPool, Speck Pumpen, grando, Hugo Lahme, WDT, Fluvo Schmalenberger, Chemoform, Dinotec, Pentair, Hayward, Bünger & Frese, Maytronics, B&B Pool Systeme, SCP, Trend Pool, Niveko, Alukov, Industry giants such as Polytan, SMG, Berliner Seilfabrik, Eurotramp, Kompan, Conica, Greenfields, CONDOR, Sport & Leisure/Domo Sports, Grass Inc/Edel Grass, Richter Spielgeräte, Lappset, Manfred Huck & Huck Seiltechnik, Sik Holz, Dr. Wolff, Bodet, Stockmeier, Seilfabrik Ullmann, Husson, Vinci Group, Bragmaia, Benz, W.M., Intercom, ISS Solar, Raita Sport or TenCate Grass their service portfolio.


The aquanale will occupy the modern Nordhallen 7 and 8 of the Cologne exhibition center in 2021, the FSB will present itself in Halls 9 and 10.1. The ideal carrier of the aquanale is the bsw – Bundesverband Schwimmbad- und Wellness e.V., which is again responsible for the content of the International Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum. In cooperation with the IAKS -International Association of Sport and Leisure Facilities e.V. – an informative and topic-oriented specialist program will be presented here on all four days of the fair in Hall 7.


The idea holder of the FSB is the IAKS, International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities e.V., which realizes the internationally renowned IAKS Congress as part of the FSB 2021. For the first time, the IAKS Congress will be held as a hybrid congress event in order to enable participants who cannot make a trip to Cologne this year to exchange knowledge and information first-hand. Once again this year, the coveted IOC/IPC/IAKS Awards for exemplary sports, leisure and recreation facilities as well as the IOC/IPC/IAKS Architecture and Design Awards for students and young talent 2021 will be presented live at the fair in a ceremony on 10/26/2021.
