TECNOVA PISCINAS 2022 will bring together professionals from across Spain in a safe environment

IFEMA MADRID makes TECNOVA PISCINAS the greatest market opportunity for the aquatic facilities sector.

20 Dec 2021

IFEMA MADRID has fully relaunched its trade fair activity for 2022 while making every effort to ensure a safe environment in its facilities. This initiative has enabled us to organise a busy programme of events in the first quarter with numerous trade shows, making Madrid the leading hub for the trade fair business in Spain and abroad.

In 2021 IFEMA MADRID became the world’s first operator to relaunch its trade fair activity, promoting the first experience of international mobility with the FITUR tourism fair. It successfully organised 125 fairs (more than a hundred face-to-face) with maximum safety for exhibitors and visitors.

Looking ahead to next year, February is one of IFEMA MADRID’s peak months and the aquatic facilities & swimming pools technology sector will be holding its main annual event: TECNOVA PISCINAS. This highly-specialised fair will benefit from IFEMA MADRID’s visitor pulling power. IFEMA MADRID is in an excellent geographical location (Madrid is less than three hours away from any point of mainland Spain), and the city has an excellent communications network and hotel infrastructure. So, the show will draw visitors from all over Spain, attracted by IFEMA’s outreach campaigns to boost the event’s profile, ensuring attendance by trade visitors from all over the country and abroad.

The Technology and Innovation Trade Show for Aquatic Installations, TECNOVA PISCINAS, held for the third time from 22nd to 25th February 2022, will enforce a rigorous protocol of measures and systems to ensure that the safety of all exhibitors and visitors.

This protocol includes capacity control using automated people counting systems, differentially, and premises with an advanced and powerful ventilation system to completely prevent recirculated air, and an air filtration system that completely renews the air every twenty minutes, a fundamental and critical feature for preventing propagation of pathogens. These measures are complemented by the way we organise people flows and layout of spaces to ensure a safe interpersonal distance at all times, the provision of hand sanitiser gel and disinfectant dispensers throughout the site, the use of contactless digital passes, mandatory mask-wearing inside IFEMA MADRID facilities, and temperature checks at all IFEMA fairs.

All these measures ensure that IFEMA MADRID can hold TECNOVA PISCINAS, with the support backing of ASEPPI (Spanish Swimming Pool Professionals Association), in the most favourable circumstances and with the best guarantees of business success for exhibitors and visitors. It also provides access to IFEMA’S unparalleled ability to attract professionals from other sectors like tourism, building construction, air conditioning and sports facilities that participate in other IFEMA MADRID trade fairs and are also interested in the industry.
