2018 promises to be a very good year for Piscine Global Europe, which will be blowing out 40 candles this year!
From 13th to 16th November, the international trade show will set up camp over 28,000 m² at Eurexpo-Lyon, to welcome 600 exhibitors, 60% of whom come from abroad, and 18,000 visitors from nearly 100 countries around the world.
The tone is already set for the 2018 edition, with "the pool as an Art de Vivre" that will be the centre of interest.
Far from being just a marketing catchphrase, this expression really reflects a new way of living and thinking about a pool project, to match a lifestyle. Present even in the layout and decoration of the exhibition, this new art of living will also be the focus of the Outdoor Space section and Pool Design competition for architects.
Another major highlight of the show will be, of course, the "connected pool", offshoot of the growing demand by buyers for automation and home automation, and which will be extensively featured. Several conferences and workshops will be specially dedicated to it (Pool Academy).
At Piscine Global Europe 2018 visiting professionals and exhibitors will rediscover the key events that contributed to the success of this global meeting:
â the Water test space with its real-life demonstrations in pools;
â the Pool Academy with its workshops devoted to design and customer relations;
â the Pool Innovations Space, bringing together new products and significant trends;
â thematic days with visits to public aquatic complexes;
â the Pool Design Awards area, enhancing the projects by architects, special evenings and presenting of trophies, etc.
Noemi Petit, Exhibition Director, is delighted that:
"The leading companies, grouped together in the Club des Majors, continue to show their trust in us, as also the international federations (Ed: between 20 and 25 federations) that will come together at the exhibition, during the Pool Summit. Piscine Global is really the preferred place for networking for the entire industry".
And concludes with optimism:
"The context is buoyant in the construction and real estate sector. (...) The Pool & Spa sector is also benefiting from this, with challenges to be faced in the future, such as renovation ("pool staging"), which are both a promising trend and a real factor for growth and development. The boom in spa and wellness is also an important driver of growth for the sector".
All the ingredients seem to be mobilised for a flawless event.
