Every two years, Cologne becomes the global centre for sports, playground, swimming pool and leisure facilities. At the leading international trade fair FSB, upcoming trends are brought to life, momentum is generated for the industry, new products and ideas are presented to a large trade audience and the most important business deals and contacts of the year are made.


Global business and national contacts: From 7 to 10 November 2017 more than 650 exhibitors from over 45 countries will be presenting the current state of their project and product developments, showing a measure of what to expect over the coming months. Around 60% of exhibitors and trade visitors at FSB come from abroad, making perfect conditions for top-level national and international business and worldwide networking.


Tradition and future: Since 1969, FSB has enjoyed a reputation that is unique in the world – but, for all that tradition, it never takes its eyes off the future. Every change in the market is noted, taken on board, and turned into successful concepts and new topics for the fair. Along with focusing on the three core themes of amenity areas/sports/pool facilities, FSB is consistently developing and focusing on new topics. A particularly successful example is the co-location of the swimming pool segments with aquanale, which produced strong impact for the industry.


Attractive, informative and groundbreaking: it is not just FSB’s congress and workshop programme that creates inspiration, stimuli and intense knowledge transfer for the sectors. From the world-leading IAKS Congress and the International Swimming Pool and Wellness Forum through to workshops, the Planer Forum and best-practice presentations by renowned industry and content experts – FSB makes the future of leisure environments come alive for four days in Cologne!
