10:00-10:30 h: The 10 most important trends in the bathroom
Speaker: Frank A. Reinhardt (FAR.consulting)
With the daily lecture on the 10 most important

Speaker: Volker Meyer (EDW)
The hygienic requirements for materials in contact with drinking water have been laid down for the first time at European level in the EU Drinking Water Directive. A positive list agreed at European level will make it possible to use materials uniformly in Europe in future. This requires some working aids for the industry and the responsible planners. The aim is to increase the high hygienic quality of products uniformly throughout Europe. Volker Meyer will present the latest developments in his lecture.

many guests, the bathroom plays an important role when choosing a hotel. With
their modern equipment and high-quality products, they offer a good start to
the day and ensure relaxation in the evening. They reflect current trends and

look at current developments in the hotel bathroom segment and what can be
implemented in the private spa.

of skilled workers in the HVEC trade? There
is not, quite the opposite is the case. But there
is no question: the demand for skilled workers in the HVEC trade has increased
enormously. Pressure is building up, especially on the subject of heat pumps.
But long before the cry for more craftsmen was heard, the HVEC trade
organisation initiated campaigns to present the profession in an attractive
light. In the meantime, craft enterprises are benefiting from this. Despite
many activities, there are still some open flanks. In order to attract more
staff, HVEC companies should create conditions that, for example, inspire more
women to take up the trade. The industry talk will address this and other
points and show how craft entrepreneurs can strengthen the current positive

Further education and training in hygiene in drinking water
installations is currently receiving additional legal support. The EU Drinking
Water Directive must be implemented in Germany with a revised Drinking Water
Ordinance. Due to this development, the sanitary associations BTGA, figawa and ZVSHK have set up a
nationally uniform further training plan "Hygiene in drinking water
installations". Lars Neveling will present the most important information
on this training initiative in this lecture.

bathroom. Under the heading of urban living, industry and bathroom planning are
offering innovative, customised solutions for small floor plans. But what are
the technical requirements for a Tiny Bathroom? What solutions does the
industry offer? And what needs to be considered when planning this highly
demanding task? These and other questions will be discussed in this panel talk.
