With 11 months to go, the trade show exceeds the surface area contracted in 2021 by 30%
More companies and space in a booming edition of Piscina & Wellness Barcelona
Piscina & Wellness Barcelona is on a very good commercial trajectory since, eleven months before it is held, it has exceeded the surface area contracted in 2021 by 30%. Fira de Barcelona’s biennial trade show, which will take place from 27 to 30 November, has already confirmed the participation of more than 200 exhibitors from 23 countries, equalling the number of companies from the previous edition. These figures point to one of the best editions of the last ten years, coinciding with the good prospects for a sector that is growing at 5% per year in Spain.
In view of the results to date, Piscina & Wellness Barcelona expects to exceed 300 exhibitors this year and occupy 30,000m2 gross in halls 1 and 2 of the Gran Via exhibition centre. If these new objectives are met, the show will grow by more than 40% in terms of both the number of companies and the surface area contracted compared to the last edition. Likewise, it would once again be confirmed as the most international show in its sector in Europe, bringing together 65% of firms from outside Spain.
With the backing of the Spanish association Asofap and the world’s leading companies in the swimming pool sector, the Barcelona trade fair will showcase the most representative and innovative commercial offer of the swimming pool and wellness product value chain. Sustainability and savings in water and energy consumption, the improvement of the user experience of swimming pools, wellness areas and aquatic facilities, as well as the automation and digitisation of maintenance will be the main features. It will also demonstrate how innovation applied to the world of swimming pools creates new spaces for wellness, health and community enjoyment.
Confidence of the leaders and new additions
The trade show’s director, Ángel Celorrio, attributes this high level of interest in the fair to “the high level of loyalty and confidence of the major brands, the return of many companies that are participating again after the pandemic break and the international appeal of the Spanish swimming pool market, the second largest in Europe, which is very receptive to the incorporation of innovations”. Celorrio also explains that the show’s commitment to sectors such as wellness, professional pool-related services and outdoor living (outdoor furniture, accessories and garden complements) opens up new avenues for continued growth.
So far, within the show’s offer, the most representative sectors are wellness, purification, physical and chemical water treatment, coatings and ornamentation, swimming pool builders, swimming pool white goods and installation accessories. Also noteworthy are the companies for covers, lighting, measuring and control equipment, prefabricated pools, air conditioning and safety, among others. In terms of origin, after Spain, the country with the most companies on the list of confirmed exhibitors is China, followed by Turkey, France, the Netherlands and Italy.
