Live and in person – Koelnmesse is making what seemed unimaginable for a long time possible. FSB and aquanale – International Trade Fairs for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities as well as for Sauna.Pool.Ambience will be hosted in Cologne as an in-person event from 26 to 29 October. New products, trends and opportunities to exchange ideas face-to-face – all this will be available at the trade show duo, supported by the attractive conference programmes of the IAKS Congress and the International Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum (ISWF).

At the FSB International Press Talk on 10 June 2021, Matthias Pollmann, Koelnmesse Vice President, and Dr Stefan Kannewischer, IAKS President, announced positive news: FSB and the IAKS Congress, aquanale and the International Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum will be held on site and as face-to-face events, as the first international industry meetings after the pandemic.

IAKS Secretary General Klaus Meinel gave an outlook on the exciting topics of the IAKS Congress and underlined the advantages of the new hybrid event format that will help the IAKS community to grow even more globally.

The globally leading B2B event in the segment of sports and leisure facilities, pools and wellness facilities makes Cologne the “place to be” once more! It will provide the stimulus so urgently needed by all industries in the post-coronavirus era in terms of trends, solutions, international networking and the initiation of new business relationships. It will offer guidance to all stakeholders as they face upcoming decisions in an environment that has been transformed by the pandemic.
