Review aquanale 2007: Expectations were again impressively surpassed

Several factors were key to the success of aquanale in 2007: the further increase in the number of exhibitors and visitors, the pronounced international visitor profile, the varied event programme, the synergies with the similarly themed and co-located FSB and SOLARIA trade fairs, the international trade congress and the quality of Cologne as a trade fair location.

The second Cologne Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum in particular was a meeting point for national and international professionals from the swimming pool, sauna and wellness industry. Once again, the event was able to welcome hundreds of experts and decision makers, designers and architects as well as hoteliers and the operators and employees of public pools and sauna facilities. More than 20 specialists provided attendees with information on the following subjects: marketing for swimming pools and wellness centres, bathing and wellness amenities in hotels, energy saving, new standards and guidelines, and operating technology in public pool facilities.

The exclusive special showcase “Forum on wellness rooms” presented the first results of an initiative by the German Federal Association for Swimming Pools and Wellness (bsw) relating to the rising demand for complete private wellness rooms. A group of experts appointed by the bsw for this purpose and comprising representatives from all areas of the market necessary for the construction and maintenance of wellness rooms – plumbing, heating, lighting, architecture – had developed an initial interdisciplinary overall concept with numerous suggestions, recommendations and technical prerequisites, which they presented at aquanale 2007.

On two days of the trade fair, the bsw stand hosted extremely popular workshops by the acclaimed American pool designers from Genesis. Skip Philipps and Brian Van Bower, the founders of Genesis and pool designers at the company, had been invited by the bsw. By way of many practical tips and examples of current sketches and concepts, the two pool experts demonstrated what swimming pool builders can present to their customers during the planning phase in terms of private swimming pool design.
