aquanale and FSB 2021: around 450 exhibitors from 40 countries

Strong national and international participation underscores the events’ crucial importance as industry gatherings for the sports, pool, leisure and public space sector

On 26 October 2021, the moment will finally have arrived once again: German and international trade fair participants will gather for the co-located events aquanale, the International Trade Fair for Sauna.Pool.Ambience, and FSB, the International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities.

For four days, the two trade fairs will be devoted to repositioning the entire international sports and leisure industry, and they will play a decisive role in a successful relaunch for the sectors involved. After more than one and a half years of digital meetings, the message from all the industry partners is that a face-to-face gathering in Cologne is essential. “The co-located events aquanale and FSB will certainly be different this year, but the important thing is that both leading industry trade fairs will provide lasting impetus for future development. And that is exactly what everyone wants and needs. We aren’t waiting for the good old days to come back. We’re actively designing a new era,” says Matthias Pollmann, Vice President Trade Fair Management at Koelnmesse.
