Pentair Provides Events And Training For


Barcelona Show Features New Dates,


European Customers On Friday 16 January, Pentair organised its very first PIP New Year’s event in combination with a Product Showcase, exclusively for existing PIP-dealers in the Benelux. About 80 companies pre-registered for this event. They joined Pentair for a drink and a bite to eat in order to celebrate the New Year and at the same time they reacquainted themselves with Pentair’s existing product range or discovered their newly launched products. As an extra, Pentair arranged for visitors to participate in a PIP-contest with the chance to win a free PIP trip to Aruba for one person. Throughout January, February and March, Pentair also organised for the very first time a series of Academy Training Tours in Europe. These workshops were designed to inform dealers about the latest Pentair developments in automation systems, pumps, heaters, lighting, filtration, water features and chlorine generation. Pentair’s experienced instructors, detailed course materials and training aids gave dealers the real-world techniques and understanding to specify, install, troubleshoot and service today’s most advanced pool equipment.


In the future Pentair will continue to organise and plan further events and training, all with the goal to h elp its customers grow their business!

A New Name And A New Image The next edition of Piscina Barcelona will be held on 13-16 October 2015 at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via Exhibition Centre, one week ahead of the initially planned date. In addition, the event


will also now be known as Piscina & Wellness Barcelona. Organisers hope that by rebranding the event and bringing the date forward, the show will connect better with a sector that is looking for water-related facilities and products associated with health, wellbeing and leisure plus it will sit better within the trade show calendar and thus attract a larger number of exhibitors and visitors.


By bringing the dates forward and implementing this new approach – which reflects the recommendations of the Spanish sector association ASOFAP and the leading companies in this market in Spain – Piscina & Wellness Barcelona hopes to increase its already significant pulling power which, with 62% of exhibitors and 37% of visitors coming from abroad, has established itself as one of the world’s top events in the sector, featuring a full range of aquatic facilities and installations.


“Our show is attended by exhibitors and trade professionals from around 100 different countries with an interest in the Spanish swimming pool market – the second largest in


Europe and fourth biggest in the world – and in the event’s export connections with the Mediterranean Arc and Latin America. This is why, event after event, we try to adapt as fully as possible to market needs so we can


provide new business opportunities and consolidate a recovery that has already begun,” confirmed the President of the show’s organising committee and Chief Executive of Fluidra, Eloi Planes.


In this respect, and in view of the increase in demand associated with wellbeing, Piscina & Wellness Barcelona 2015 has included this aspect in the show’s name and will be promoting it strongly in its offering. “Water is the lifeblood of our sector and its new uses, which combine relaxation, sport, leisure, pleasure and health, are transforming the market and driving its growth,” explained the show’s director, Josep Jonàs. “This aspect is highlighted in the show’s new image, with drops of water representing the areas of swimming pool, wellness and aquatic facilities, all converging in a global event which is sure to boost the business activity of the sector as a whole,” concluded Jonàs.
