Industry Relevance

Open only to professional visitors, FSB has had half a century to build itself a reputation as the one-stop exhibition for the entire value chain surrounding amenity areas, sports, and pool facilities. The first edition dates back to 1969 and new editions are spaced out every two years, held at the famous Koelnmesse. We have already mentioned the impressive product line-up. Now it is time to take a look at the product groups – playground equipment, sports park equipment, leisure park facilities, public swimming pools, recreational facilities, sauna parks, theme parks, city furniture and the list goes on. It is also worth mentioning that alongside FSB runs the AQUANALE which is tightly focused around saunas, spas and swimming pools.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

FSB is a place where supply and demand meet, so it is primarily a marketplace for purchases. Yet we would be remiss not to mention that the exhibition is also the first stage, where innovations are announced. It is also where the latest industry news are revealed. This has resulted in a diverse audience that comes from predominantly municipal authorities and features mostly landscape architects, engineers, architects, planners, and facility managers. There are also investors, building societies, garden and landscape construction companies, sports clubs, kindergartens, and organisations for the elderly. It is this varied mix that helps you stretch your influence in a lot of fields and identify opportunities to grow in your niche.
