The eccos pro user meeting has now successfully established itself as a fixed date in the calendars of bathing facility professionals. This year's event under the banner "Communication, control and qualification – Challenges and opportunities for bathing facilities" took place from 30 to 31 March at the Heide Park Abenteuerhotel in Soltau.

Programme highlights for the 170 participants from a record 83 fixtures this year again included exciting presentations by guest speakers and informative workshops about eccos pro software applications.

The Heide Park Abenteuerhotel in Soltau provided an exceptional setting for eccos pro's annual industry event.

Following the welcoming address by Peter Pongratz (eccos pro Director and Schulte-Schlagbaum AG Management Board Chairman) and by Ross Pennington, manager of the Heide Park Abenteuerhotel, participants engaged in the multi-faceted programme of specialist presentations on topics such as control in pool areas, geomarketing and staff qualifications.

The popular user workshops again attracted great interest this year. They provided an ideal opportunity for learning first-hand about the new features of mafis® software and other eccos pro products in more detail. The current number-one issue concerning the basic principles on the proper keeping and storage of financial books, recordings and documents in electronic form as well as data access – GoBD – was also analysed in detail. Numerous renowned companies from the bathing industry introduced their current solutions for efficient management of recreational facilities in the context of our trade exhibition.

An interesting framework programme comprising evening events and entertainment rounded off the event.
