The team behind the show want to welcome everyone involved in the delivery of the hot tub sector to meet and network and plan for the launch of the 2017 sales in top gear.
A major new initiative this year is a fully-functioning retail showroom, put together In partnership with exhibitors, within the show.
“The Live Industry Superstore will be fully staffed and will showcase the very latest layouts and point of sale products and accessories,” explains Claire Saunders, of New Events, the organisers of the show. “We will be inviting exhibitors to be part of this Live Superstore that aims to reccreate the ultimate hot tub shopping experience,” she says.
“Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase products directly from the store,” Claire adds.
Another new feature, the Hot Tub Living Marketplace offers a great opportunity for those companies that do not require an individual stand at the show.
Claire explains: “Perhaps you’re a new start up company, maybe you are unable to dedicate staff resources or simply just want to try the new event without a large outlay. “An open plan concept will provide each participant with a display space of either a podium, counter, showcase or similar together with display for literature.”
Attendees will be able to engage with suppliers and experts on how to make the most of your showroom space, learn the tips and tricks on what encourages the consumer to purchase, how to upsell, what environment will keep your consumers in the showroom, what will encourage them to keep coming back to you.
