    The third Piscina & Wellness Forum will be digital and will analyse the post-pandemic sector challenges

    From 3rd to 6th November, ASOFAP, the Spanish Association for Professionals in the Swimming Pool Sector, and Fira de Barcelona are organising the third Piscina & Wellness Forum, a digital event to tackle post-pandemic sector challenges and trends that will combine lectures, solution presentations and personalised interviews with experts. This year’s conference will offer a new perspective on innovation and will emphasize good practices to achieve sustainable pools, the impact of the new health context in public swimming pools in both sports centres and hotels, as well as solutions for the management of community pools. With the virtual celebration, the Piscina & Wellness Forum will expand its audience and reach not only in Spain, but also in European and Latin American countries. 

    The Piscina & Wellness Forum 2020 proposes plenary sessions, conferences, round-table discussions, presentations by sponsor companies and virtual networking spaces where you can debate, update your knowledge, discover the application of new solutions and find advice. Topics such as digital transformation, remote maintenance, sustainability and aspects related to safety, cleaning, disinfection and water quality will be very much present at the conferences. The Barometer of the Swimming Pool Sector in Spain 2020, carried out by ASOFAP together with the Fira de Barcelona’s Piscina & Wellness Event, will also be presented during the event.
    The Forum is geared towards manufacturers, distributors, installers and sellers of swimming pool products, as well as architects, engineers, designers, builders, managers of public swimming pools, sporting facilities, hotels and campsite establishments, tour operators, water park designers, wellness and spa centre professionals, gym owners and building administrators among other profiles.
    All the activities will take place virtually in the afternoon, using a specific and interactive platform. This new format makes it possible to reach a greater number of people, allowing professionals from European and Latin American countries to join the conference and participate in working meetings and interviews with experts.
    The Piscina & Wellness Forum is held every two years, alternating with the Piscina & Wellness event held in Barcelona, the leading event for the swimming pool and wellness industry in Spain and one of the most international in its field in Europe, organised by Fira de Barcelona and whose next edition will take place again from 29th November to 2nd December 2021 at the Gran Via venue.
    Since its first edition in 2016, the Piscina & Wellness Forum has been an excellent training and advisory framework for brands, clients and professionals from sectors that use products linked to the swimming pool and wellness value chain. The proposals, always with a practical focus, help to deepen the understanding of applications and systems that improve sustainability and user experience in different types of aquatic facilities. It also allows you to update your knowledge of regulations, discover trends that impact on business, advance consumer behaviour and analyse the economic context. This year will mark a turning point since it will make it possible to evaluate with some perspective the effects of the pandemic on the sector and offer some keys so that your companies come out stronger from this crisis.
