From 22 to 24 October 2024, interbad will once again be the industry meeting place for swimming pools, saunas and spas. The exhibition will take place for the 30th time this year and, with its combination of trade fair, congress and attractive supporting program, offers an ideal platform for the entire sector. 

More than 75% of exhibition space already booked

With the move to Hall 1 (L-Bank Forum), the largest hall at Messe Stuttgart with over 26,800 m², trade visitors can get a comprehensive overview of product innovations, designs and technologies from the pool, wellness, sauna and spa sectors under one roof.

Interbad - Trade Fair for Swimming Pools, Saunas and Spas, which is organised by the German Association for the Recreational and Medicinal Bath Industry (DGfdB) together with Messe Stuttgart, will once again have all the market leaders on board for 2024. Almost 9 months before the start of the trade fair, over 75% of the exhibition space has already been booked. "This already strong occupancy rate is an expression of the industry's great confidence in interbad", explains Claudia Döttinger, Member of the Management Board of Messe Stuttgart. "We have responded to the wishes of the industry by relocating and adjusting the duration to three days and look forward to welcoming you as a visitor to Stuttgart from 22 to 24 October 2024!"

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) promotes the participation of young innovative companies in selected leading international trade fairs in Germany. interbad is also one of these trade fairs in 2024! There will be a sponsored joint stand at interbad for this purpose.

  • they comply with the valid EU definition of a small company (fewer than 50 employees and an annual balance sheet total or an annual turnover not exceeding 10 million Euros)
  • and are less than ten years old.

The companies must also have developed new products, processes and services, or made major improvements to existing products, processes and services. General information about the "Young Innovators trade fair programme" can be downloaded here.
