FSB And aquanale Moving To Cologne’s North Halls For 2015

In 2015, aquanale is moving to Koelnmesse’s modern North Halls, together with the FSB (International Trade Fair for Amenity Areas, Sports, and Pool Facilities) which takes place simultaneously. The trade fair duo will take place from 27 – 30 October 2015 in Cologne with a completely new appearance, across an exhibition area of around 80,000 sqm in Halls 6, 7, 9 and 10. With the new ‘themed hall concept’, aquanale and FSB are setting the right course for a successful future for the industry in Cologne. Exhibitors at both events will benefit from an improved infrastructure in the new areas of the Cologne exhibition grounds. In addition, the modern, naturally lit halls provide the optimal transit route to guide the stream of visitors through the Messe- Boulevard. The North Halls also provide the

perfect transport connection to Congress Centres North and East. “For the swimming pool, sauna and wellness sectors, public as well as private, the move to the modern North Halls represents a stronger focus on existing synergies and an improvement in visiting conditions for exhibitors and visitors, thereby creating a professional atmosphere in which to develop business networks on a national and international scale,” says Katharina C. Hamma, Chief Operating Officer at Koelnmesse GmbH.

The running of the two shows, which successfully amalgamated at the last fair, is to be continued and developed in 2015. From now on, Hall 6 will house private and public swimming pool equipment as well as the sauna, spa and wellness sectors and

forms one of the largest market places for the swimming pool industry in the world. Attractive focus areas or ‘theme worlds’ like the special exhibition of Natural Pools and the presentation of Industry Innovations will round out the thematic range of aquanale 2015. Within the industry there is a growing sense of anticipation for the year‘s international trade fair highlight of the swimming pool and wellness industry. Numerous requests for exhibition space at aquanale have already been received. Based on these positive signs, Koelnmesse is expecting the next edition of aquanale to show an increase in exhibitor interest from home and abroad, in comparison to the 2013 event, which itself was extremely successful. .“There will be a lot of thematic highlights which will add significant value, particularly for the international visitor,” says Dieter C. Rangol, Executive Director of the Federal Association of Swimming Pools and Wellness (Bundesverband Schwimmbad und Wellness/ bsw). “By successfully bringing together the swimming pool sectors from aquanale and FSB’s ‘Public swimming pool construction’ last year, all sectors involved have already confirmed that joint trade-fair concepts are a guarantee for a successful future and that such concepts have to advance together.” This means that all aspects of the public and private swimming pool, wellness, sauna and spa sectors are now comprehensively represented in Cologne, on one platform and in clearly defined themed worlds.

Walking in Water Proven to Ease Arthritis Pain

High intensity intervals, or HIT training, in water is good for you according to a new US research study.

Results of a significant new study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research are opening the door for millions of osteoarthritis (OA) patients who can use high intensity aquatic exercise for regular physical activity to better manage their arthritis. The landmark study, led by Eadric Bressel. Ph.D., professor and clinical research scientist at Utah State University means

that millions of people with arthritis can enjoy an improved quality of life with less stress and worry often associated with pain and the risk of falling. Greater confidence and reduced fear will help them attain better physical condition, resulting in more comfortably participating in normal, every day activities with co-workers, friends and family. “Having osteoarthritis patients walking against a systematically high and low resistance in water resulted in significant reduction in pain, improved mobility, balance and function,” said

Dr Bressel. “This same kind of high intensity interval training on land would be unfathomable because of the load-elicited pain,” he added.

It is commonly accepted that aquatic exercise is helpful to those living with arthritis. This new study, incorporating high intensity, interval aquatic training demonstrates that even better

outcomes can be attained. “Everyone can find a pool. Millions of people with arthritis can maintain better health just by walking and running in water. As they get stronger, they may feel more confident to exercise on land too,” commented Thomas M. Lachocki, Ph. D. CEO of non- profit National Swimming Pool Foundation who funded the study.
