Piscine Global Europe 2016: innovation in the spotlight
For the last 30 years, Piscine Global has been an essential link for pool and spa professionals. Market evolution, the latest trends, new technologies, meetings, workshops… This sparkling event puts innovation in the spotlight every two years. Let’s look back at the key figures for Piscine Global Europe 2016!
A look at the evolution of the pool and spa market
When we slip on a pair of trunks or swimming costume and splash about in a pool, the innovations that have made this possible are often far from our thoughts. Today, we can control the quality and the temperature of the water with just a few clicks! Innovations have continuously driven the evolution of the pool market and have also helped the sector achieve a new record. So it makes total sense that innovations take pride of place at each Piscine Global Europe trade show.
During Piscine Global Europe 2016, all the latest innovations were accessible via the Piscine Innovation area and highlighted by awards. The Piscine Innovations – New Products category celebrated the most innovative projects, while the Piscine Innovations – Sustainable Development category draw attention to products that reduce the impact on the environment.
