Following a dynamic and convincing restart in October 2021, the trade fair duo of aquanale - International Trade Fair for Sauna.Pool.Ambience - and FSB - International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities - is entering the intense preparation stage ahead of next year's events. In 2021, the two leading trade fairs once again underlined the vital role they play as sources of inspiration for their sectors. Demand is therefore already strong even before the first registration phase for the 2023 events officially begins.

Secure key benefits with early booking until 31 January 2023

Once the online registration forms become available in August 2022, exhibitors at previous events as well as exhibitors interested in participating in the trade fairs for the first time will have the opportunity to secure key benefits by registering before 31 January 2023. In addition to the attractive early-bird stand area price, early registrants will also be able to reserve their preferred stand area size and location in the aquanale and FSB 2023 exhibition halls well in advance. The clear spatial and thematic distinction between the co-located international trade fairs - FSB and aquanale - will be further consolidated for the events scheduled to take place at the end of October 2023.  As in 2021, aquanale will be located in Halls 7 and 8 of the Koelnmesse trade fair grounds - clearly divided into the six familiar theme worlds. Trends for private pool and wellness facilities with saunas and spas, as well as innovations and management concepts for operators of public pools, water parks and thermal baths will be on show here. The International Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum will continue to be an integral part of aquanale because it provides the visitor target groups with the necessary content and sharpens their focus on the current topics from the swimming pool and wellness sector.

As the world's leading trade fair for urban living environments, the co-located FSB is the global hub for products and services related to public spaces and sports and leisure facilities. The event will be held in exhibition halls 9, 10.1 and 10.2. Individual themed areas will be reorganised and related topics will be even more closely interlinked. Optimised routes for trade fair visitors and the proximity to the entrance areas as well as to Congress Centres North and East add the finishing touches to the overall concept for the trade fair duo. IAKS - the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities - has already begun preparing for its congress as well.

The congress's key topics will once again be the increasingly important issues of energy-efficient sports and leisure facilities and sustainable, resource-efficient designs and operating concepts. The IAKS Congress will take place in parallel with the two trade fairs, thereby providing the ideal opportunity for additional knowledge sharing and networking. Both trade fairs - aquanale, the International Trade Fair for Sauna.Pool.Ambience, and FSB, International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities - will take place from 24 to 27 October in Cologne.
