The 14th edition of the leading event for the swimming pool and spa industry in Italy points straight at the themes of sustainability and innovation. New this year: the concurrence with the 10th International Conference on Swimming Pool & Spa (ICSPS) and the addition of Outex, Outdoor & Leisure Experience.
ForumPiscine, the exhibition and congress event, allows you to explore everything that concerns the aquatic universe, in and out of the pool. Scheduled to take place in Bologna from 15 to 17 February 2023, ForumPiscine is the international event, the actual leader in Italy, for the entire supply chain of pools and spas, able to offer operators in the sector updates and tools to win the challenges of the future with competence and professionalism.
Forum Expo: everything for swimming pools, spas and outdoor spaces
In Hall 19 of BolognaFiere, ForumPiscine and Outex are preparing to welcome over 6,000 operators including managers and owners of public and private facilities, technicians and installers, distributors and manufacturers, architects and designers, arriving from Italy and abroad to discover all the novelties of the 2023 edition.
Three days fully dedicated to buyers and professionals to create relationships, exchange views and look for collaborations, be informed about the latest trends and discover products, services and technologies for the design, renovation and efficient management of spas, thermal pools, residential, commercial, collective and bio-pools for private facilities and homes, as well as sports and multi-purpose facilities, hotels and resorts, campsites, country houses, water parks as well as fitness and wellness clubs.
Enriching and completing the ForumPiscine show is the addition of Outex - Outdoor & Leisure Experience, of which it represents the natural evolution. Indeed, Outex integrates and includes products and services connected to the use and management of outdoor spaces, increasingly conceived as areas dedicated to comfort, relaxation and well-being.
At the show, exhibiting companies will be providing experiential installations to tell how to experience and manage outdoor spaces in the best possible way, as well as Live Shows where you can find ideas, advice and professional consultancy, as well as discover features, technologies and products for the renovation and maintenance of the pool and beyond.
Congress: sustainability, regulatory update and technological innovation
In the foreground at the Forum Congress you will find the most relevant themes for operators, starting with the energy (and economic) sustainability of the swimming pool open to the public, in whatever context it is placed. ForumPiscine will delve into this topic in dedicated meetings, also in view of the recent soaring prices: a thorough debate about this topic can no longer be postponed. Leading speakers, moderated by Marco Sublimi, consultant in the management of public and private aquatic facilities, will discuss how best to tackle plant and technological interventions to try to cut costs and find effective solutions.
Technological innovation will be at the centre of a debate among experts focusing on advanced systems, already available and in many cases currently in operation, to improve the performance of pool treatment systems and guarantee users safety and water quality.
Another salient topic will be the entry into force of the Reform of sport and sports work, on which expert and authoritative professionals will debate, again coordinated by Marco Sublimi. In the light of the changes taking place nationally and internationally, we will also take stock of the regulations governing the swimming pool industry and their forthcoming update, proposing a common reflection on the new structures and the transformations that will involve both builders and managers of swimming pools open to the public. On this last aspect, Emanuele Ferretti, researcher at the "Water Quality and Health" Department of Italy's Istituto Superiore di Sanità, will provide the business community with all the insights available to date on the regulation that will replace Italy's State-Regions Agreement.
Global trends and technologies that will transform swimming pools and water parks will be the leitmotif of the speech by the histrionic Massimiliano Freddi, second vice-president of IAAPA, founder and CEO of Wonderwood, as well as lecturer at Milan's IULM University.
Partners and sponsors, at the forefront of education
The convention calendar of ForumPiscine is developed in collaboration with partners and patrons of the event, who will contribute to the training and updating of the various professional figures in the swimming pool sector, organising round tables, seminars and workshops: FIN - Italian Swimming Federation, FoRST - Foundation for thermal scientific research, and the category associations Acquanet - Association of Swimming Pools, AIAPP - Italian Association of Landscape Architecture, Assopiscine - Italian Association of Swimming Pools and Wellness, that will celebrate its first thirty years of activity at ForumPiscine, FAITA - Federcamping , Coordinamento Associazioni Gestori Impianti Natatori and UNPISI, the association that brings together prevention technicians.
ForumPiscine can count on the support of top sponsors such as Led Italy, NoviNato and Polimpianti and sponsors such as Barchemicals group, Emec, G&G Partners, Griffon, Lactus piscine, PoolSider and Soprema.
10th International Conference on Swimming pool & Spa (Admission Fee)
The 2023 edition of ForumPiscine will bring another high-profile novelty to the show: the tenth edition of the world conference dedicated to the safety and quality of water in spas and pools organised by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità and the University of Rome "Foro Italico". Experts from Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and the Middle East will come from the international academic world and the most prestigious Institutes of Health to discuss issues concerning public health, safety and sustainability. The programme of meetings, all in English, will range from green innovation to swimming pool design and management, from microbiological, chemical and physical hazards to indoor air quality and microclimate.
A first-rate training moment that will converge with the presentation of the best new products for the next season by companies in the swimming pool and spa industry attending ForumPiscine. Emanuele Ferretti (Istituto Superiore di Sanità) and Vincenzo Romano Spica (Università degli Studi di Roma "Foro Italico") will open the work.
Italian Pool Award: the Made-In-Italy swimming pool Best-of award is back
ForumPiscine will once again host the award ceremony for the winners of the 12th edition of the Italian Pool Award, the prize that crowns Italian excellence in this sector. The prize will be awarded to projects that stand out for technology, design and environmental, water and energy sustainability.
