Here are the key data points: 

  • 400+ international exhibitors from 28 countries showcase

Industry Relevance

interbad is a biennial exhibition for swimming pools and spa facilities that has been going on since 1966 – the infancy of the wellness industry as a modern, commercial market with potential to make money. Held in Stuttgart, it also holds the distinction of the leading European trade fair thanks to generous support from the German Association for the Recreational and Medicinal Bath Industry.

The exhibition space is dedicated to the entire product spectrum – anti-aging treatments, pool technology, sauna accessories, sauna equipment, fitness equipment, healing methods, massage, massage tables, medical treatments, accessories for medical baths, bathrooms equipment, saunas. The list goes on. It’s this fact that cements interbad as the trade fair with the largest product range compared to any other event in the entire world. Effectively, interbad functions as a go-to place for buyers to make all their purchases in one place. As such, you can see all of the hottest trends in designs, materials and function at interbad.

Outside the purely business dimensions of the fair, interbad hosts a very successful conference for the spa industry that examines possible futures for the industry and also pinpoints the trends about to gain popularity worldwide. This is where interbad shines brightest as it’s at the heart of many of the most important conversations. 

The pandemic and now energy crisis as a result of the ongoing war have created many obstacles for the sauna and wellness industries as a whole. In Germany, we’ve seen many closures during the last two years and the spiking energy prices puts additional strain on saunas as a whole. Those two problems will be further addressed in person and the main topics will be energy efficiency and sustainability. You can only stand to benefit from all the knowledge and expertise being shared. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Germany has a long tradition of spa culture so it’s not surprising to see a higher concentration of local companies and trade visitors. Nevertheless, interbad is steadily gaining traction with a lot more geographical regions as the number of foreign visitors swells up to 27%. The countries in the lead are Switzerland, Austria, Russia, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. 

As far as professional backgrounds go, interbad draws in architects, planners and experts from the swimming pool construction and trade along with operators of private and public swimming pools, sports venues and hotels that offer wellness packages. A third of all visitors either own or manage a company, while close to 90% reported that they have a say in company purchases.

Additional Value of Attending 

The two main information events everyone anticipates every edition are the DGfdB Congress (for pool and bath technology) and the International Sauna Congress (specifically focused on the sauna industry). These congresses always guarantee an impressive lineup of speakers, who talk at length about trends, ideas and challenges. The level of exchange of information and expertise makes them a rich source of knowledge and inspiration. You get speakers from all over the world to give their unique perspectives. 

Aside from capturing the attention of visitors with your exhibition booth, you can meet with a lot more potential clients by taking part in the matchmaking event. There’s no charge associated with attendance and the event is even open to companies not participating in interbad in any way. If you are strapped for cash to rent exhibition space, this is the tool for you. Each one-on-one meeting runs for 20 minutes, giving you ample time to form a real connection and present your products in great detail. The great thing about the matchmaking platform is that you can participate remotely and host video meetings at the designated time.
