Entries are now open for the unmissable UK Pool & Spa Awards 2016…
The UK Pool & Spa Awards showcase the very best of the companies involved in the provision of water leisure in Great Britain. Building on its continued success, we have made some changes to the 2016 competition ensure that more companies than ever before are recognised for their outstanding achievements.
The event is set to be bigger and better this year with overwhelming demand boosting the number of award-winning opportunities to 26 this year. Two new categories have been added to recognise the accomplishments of some of the country’s leading commercial pools; these are Hotel Pool of the Year and School Pool of the Year.
A brand new website too makes the entry and voting process as straight-forward as possible. The competition is open to swimming pool designers, installers, leisure operators, swim spa and hot tub manufacturers as well as wholesalers and retailers – regardless of trade association affiliation.
Previous years have attracted interest from all over the UK and Eire, Europe and around the world with hundreds of entries submitted. Past award winners have said how much they value the competition as an opportunity to raise the profile of their company both inside the industry and most importantly to their target customers.
Another added value service is that category winners will receive free PR and marketing support to publicise their win. All successful entrants will also be able to use a special awards logo to help promote their success.
Those wishing to take part can now enter via the UK Pool & Spa Awards website. All entries must be submitted online by Monday August 15 and an entry fee of £30 plus VAT (£36 total) for each entry is payable via PayPal at time of entry submission.
Competition entrants can either nominate their own company or another company or individual. All entries need to be accompanied by at least one, but ideally three, digital images at 300 dpi or more, which need to be uploaded with the entry form.
This year’s awards presentation evening will return to the Vox Conference centre within Resorts World on the Birmingham NEC site. The ceremony will coincide with the first day of the new Hot Tub Living Expo which will take place in Hall 11 at the NEC on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 October.
The prize-giving event will begin with a business networking style drinks reception, sponsored by water treatment specialists Lonza. Guests will have the opportunity to meet with all of the companies involved in sponsoring the competition – all helping to raise the profile of individual winners and the industry as a whole.
Tickets for the business networking style prize-giving event are now available to book online. Tickets are priced at £50 +VAT (£60 total), which includes drinks on arrival, dinner and entertainment. With limited seats available, early booking is advised. An informal event and opportunity to celebrate its many successes; the dress code for the evening is smart casual.
