Trade Fair
Double-Header with
Distinct International
Character
With some 24,000 visitors from 112
different countries, the FSB and
aquanale international trade fairs jointly
held this past October 26th to 29th
at Cologne, Germany's Koelnmesse
convention center maintained a
consistent level of attendance. Since this
trade fair duo was held the last time two
years ago, the number of exhibitors grew
by ten percent and set a new record with
630 exhibitors from 45 countries. 66
percent of exhibitors and 57 percent of
visitors additionally came from abroad.

Among the exhibitors on hand at the
62,000 square meters of exhibition
space was water play equipment

designed to appeal to children. Kids

Rave Sports. The inflatable insulation
plug is designed to prevent the loss
of warmth inside tube slides that are
partially exposed to the outdoors and
subsequently to cold and moisture
when they are not in use, for instance
overnight. The plug is filled with air
and positioned to seal off both ends of
the tube. Together with the insulation
of the slide walls, the plug is aimed at
achieving a double warmth retention
effect and reducing the loss of energy.
Thomas Lugnet, General Manager of
Hydro Sport, was satisfied with the
FSB, which was even more successful
for his company this year than the fair
held two years ago.
