Dear Colleagues

The 10th International Swimming Pond Conference under the motto “Amazement and Surprise with swimming ponds and natural pools” is just around the corner. In just over 5 weeks we will meet in Warsaw to inform ourselves about the latest developments in the swimming pond industry and to meet old and new friends from all over the world.

High time for all those who want to participate but have not yet registered to do so immediately. And for those who are still undecided: give yourself the last jolt, it’s worth it!

Bookings on the new IOB website

There you will also find the event and lecture program, information about the Rally HamburgWarsaw and much more.

On September 11, the day after the congress, our friends from the Polish Association will offer an interesting tour of various water projects in and around Warsaw, from a swimming pond to rainwater retention basins and a water park. The description of the tour can also be found on the website. Please confirm your interest in this tour in the website to facilitate the planning.

11th international Swimming Pond Conference 2021

The International Swimming Pond Conference takes place every two years. In Warsaw, we will choose the venue for the 2021 Congress at this year’s IOB Assembly. For this we ask the associations, which want to organize the next congress with the IOB, to send their application to the IOB until 31.8.2019 and to prepare a small presentation for the assembly.
