Barcelona 2018 to be present at the Piscina & Wellness Congress

The 33rd LEN European Water Polo Championships Barcelona 2018 are expected to have a notable presence at the Piscina & Wellness Congress which will take place in Barcelona next week. After a busy promotional schedule with Wopit, the official mascot, in several pools where competitions of all levels are currently being held, this will be a complete new promotional scenario for the competition. The event is set to be held at pavilions 1 and 2 of the Fira de Barcelona from October 17 and 20. 

The congress, the leading trade fair in Spain in this field, will have a surface of over 14.000 sq. m between the two pavilions, and will focus on new products and innovations. The exhibition area will provide a global vision of all the agents involved both in the swimming pool and wellness fields. 

The opening event, scheduled for Tuesday 17 at 16:30pm, will be attended by the Vice-President of the Barcelona 2018 Organizing Committee, Enric Bertrán. Guests will be able to have firsthand information on Barcelona 2018. Over 3.000 leaflets will be distributed to guarantee that Barcelona 2018 doesn’t go unnoticed among the 341 stands. The fair will moreover have a small swimming pool where water polo exhibitions are set to be held. 

The Barcelona 2018 Organizing Committee has scheduled the first exhibition for October 17. Several players from CN Sant Andreu, including the European U-18 MVP, Alejandra Aznar, will put on a show in front of the attendees to the opening of Piscina & Wellness. 

Barcelona 2018 will be held at the Bernat Picornell Pool from July 14-28, during which 16 men’s and 12 women’s squads will fight for European supremacy.
