The return to Bologna brought only good things to the ForumClub-ForumPiscine Expo, the 6,000 attendees confirm an important level of growth (+20% in respect to 2009); growth that is even more significant considering the present economic situation.
With the edition that closed Saturday February 27, the pool and spa sector confirmed their event of reference as ForumPiscine: participating operators showed full satisfaction thanks to a complete and diverse commercial offer and organized workshops of high technical content.
Examination and formation were at the heart of ForumClub, that offered entrepreneurs, managers and staff theoretical and practical ideas for starting off fresh and renewing their image, all very useful information for this difficult period.
