Spatex, an exhibition for the pool, sauna, steam room and spa industry, prepares its biggest ever show next year at a venue in Coventry. More than 100 exhibitors and 1,400 visitors will be attending the three-day event starting on 30 January, the organiser said.
“We’re already nearing capacity for exhibition space, with over 85 per cent sold, and that’s a really great position to be in,” Show organiser Michele Bridle commented. “We are striking a healthy balance of attracting returning exhibitors who are taking more space for this year, while also attracting a range of brand new suppliers to the show.”
Leading industry organisations, including the Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers (ISPE), will be hosting daily workshops at the show with attendance certificates and CPD points available.
“We’re also increasing the size of our successful seminar programme at the exhibition, with brilliant talks from industry leading companies, groups and professionals,” Bridle added.
As part of the expansion, the IPSE will be running a comprehensive seminar programme, with 16 new additions to last year’s offering, covering all areas of the pool and spa trade, both commercial and domestic.
“The exciting double seminar programme features a whole host of different topics, ranging from the latest advice on the maintenance of spas and hot tubs and natural swimming ponds, to simple water chemistry for swimming pools and ways of incorporating the most energy efficient products into wet leisure projects. With all the latest innovations, Spatex has something for everyone.”
The show will be held in the Ericsson Exhibition Hall, at Ricoh Arena in Coventry. It has bee hosted there for the last five years.
“Spatex is another show that is growing its number of exhibitors and visitors from being at the Ricoh Arena, commented Caroline Lissaman, head of event management at the Ricoh Arena. “The Ericsson Exhibition Hall is perfect for shows such as this, we’re in a great location to attract visitors from across the UK with great transport links and our on-site car parking.”
