PISCINA BARCELONA SET TO BE NEW INTERNATIONAL HUB After two decades and ten editions, the International Swimming Pool Show has become a leading event that not only includes the world of residential pools, but also all structures that allow recreational, sports and therapeutic use of water. Piscina Barcelona, Wellness Barcelona and Leisure and Sports Facilities are the three areas that will be featured in exhibits at the event, which is shaping up to be the sector’s new international hub. The 2013 show will also host the Wellness & Spa Experiences Event, a congress that will bring together international wellness experts.


Since its first show in 1994, Piscina Barcelona has contributed to boosting one the country’s most solid markets. Spain has over 1.1 million private family swimming pools, accounting for 7% of the world market and the market is ranked fourth for the total number of pools on the planet and second in Europe. These figures validate the sector’s vitality and make Piscina Barcelona, which is holding its 11th edition from 11 to 15 October in the Gran Via Exhibition Centre, one of the recreational water industry’s most integrated shows and a leading international benchmark event.


New for 2013, Piscina Barcelona will run alongside ‘Body Life’, a show dedicated to fitness equipment, which will take place from 17 to 19 October in the same exhibition centre. The two shows, which will have separate tickets and entrances, will offer the public a unique opportunity to obtain a full view of the world of wellness. According to the show’s director Isabel Pi–ol: “The new water culture encompasses all aspects of this natural resource that, in our society, has become an irreplaceable instrument of wellness, sport, leisure, pleasure and health. Piscina Barcelona has evolved into a show that integrates all water-related markets, such as residential swimming pools, wellness and sports and recreational aquatic facilities, under a brand new concept: Barcelona International Aquatic Exhibition. From the next edition, we will concentrate these three areas in a single

event in order to multiply the synergies that exist between them and, thereby, contribute to boosting the market.”


The show not only offers trade visitors the opportunity to see the latest products on the market or to make contact with purchasing decision-makers from around the world, but also the chance to listen to conferences by the market’s best experts. In this sense, the show will be a platform for transferring international know-how, where professionals from the domestic market and abroad will debate trends and analyse the business possibilities of foreign markets. Finally, in order to confirm its commitment to all things ‘green’, the show is holding the Piscina Barcelona Awards for Innovation and Sustainability, which recognise the enterprising nature of brands in the sector. Two of the best innovative initiatives that guarantee sustainability in the fields of swimming pools, wellness and sports and recreational aquatic facilities will receive an award.
