With the FINA World Medicine Congress already underway, the Exhibition Hall of the Convention also opened its doors and people start gathering and exchanging around the stands. Aiming to provide a space for the global Aquatics Family and business leaders to come together and engage, the Hall will be open every day during the three-day Convention.

More than 40 exhibitors booked a space for their stand this year which delegates will visit in between sessions on December 3-5.

FINA’s booth right at the beginning of the Hall’s slalom is an information point that promotes FINA’s events. All sorts of information related to the Convention going-on and the official programme are available there.
