The 4th Cologne Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum, to be held on 27 and 28 October 2011, is to focus on pool safety, modern marketing tools for public swimming pools, and the increasing popularity of natural pools and swimming ponds.

The forum will provide visitors with information on current themes and trends, and is geared to both the public and private swimming pool markets. A simultaneous translation into English will be provided for the whole proceedings.

The event is being organised by the three German associations: IAKS (International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities / Internationale Vereinigung Sport- und Freizeiteinrichtungen e. V.), BSW (Federal Association for Swimming Pools and Wellness / Bundesverband Schwimmbad & Wellness e. V.) and BSB (Federal Association for Sauna Construction and Steam Baths / Bundesverband Saunabau, Infrarot- und Dampfbad e. V.) in cooperation with Koelnmesse.
