Event description

About this Event

The 2nd International IAKS Pool Conference is the perfect forum for discussing current trends in the fields of management, architecture and technology and for exchanging ideas with operators / owners, planners / consultants and manufacturers in the pool industry on the international level. The conference opens on 23 September with a visit to the indoor pool in Asker, which was built in 2017 to passive house standards and, in view of its energy efficiency, is considered an exemplary project of the Norwegian FutureBuilt programme.

The tour will be followed by a networking dinner in Asker, which will also be attended by the IAKS Expert Circle on Pools.
