FSB: International Trade Fair for Public Space, Sports and Leisure Facilities

Multifunctional products, sustainable technologies and innovative concepts: These are the key elements to inspire movement and promote fitness. At FSB 2021, the international trade fair for public space, sports and leisure facilities in Cologne, exhibitors and trade visitors from all over the world got things moving. Here, trends were set for the design of urban living spaces that meet future requirements for energy efficiency, resource conservation and accessibility. The three thematic areas of open space/playground equipment, sports facilities and exercise were each housed in their own area, which provided a clear structure for all participants.

Attendance at FSB in Cologne is a must for industry deciders from all over the world. Decision makers from municipalities and associations, international buyers, investors, planning agencies, architects and operators of stadiums, event locations and arenas come to Cologne to see the key trends, discover innovations, exchange ideas with industry partners and find the right solutions for their current projects.
