With over 90 confirmed exhibitors, SPATEX 2017 will welcome leading water leisure suppliers and loyal followers to the show.
Marking its 21st anniversary milestone SPATEX returns to Coventry’s Ricoh Arena from Tuesday January 31 to Thursday February 2 inclusive, and promises to re-invigorate and re-energise the industry for the year ahead.
As usual, SPATEX offers a double seminar and workshop programme, organised by the Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers (ISPE), which will run across all three days of the exhibition.
A comprehensive new programme is planned, highlights of which will include a talk given by specialist International Personal Injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell, Simon O’Loughlin (Wednesday, February 1 at 12.30pm in Arena 1) on what to do when things go legal including pursuing a civil case and proving negligence etc. Increasing in popularity, owner and Managing Director of Gartenart Swimming Ponds and board member of the British Association of Natural Swimming Pools, Tim Evans, has been invited to give an introductory talk on swimming ponds and natural swimming pools on Wednesday February 1 at 12.30pm in Arena 2.

The NIVEKO stand is based on a minimalist design, where the main feature will be the Underfl ow, a new type of overfl ow pool. The NIVEKO Underfl ow features a highly individual design for the overflow trough, where the water drains away under the fl oor, meaning there is no need for any edge or trim where the trough surface ends. Its unique Apollo steps and Rollo bench in warm yellow will present a refreshing complement to the predominant white of the stand. The NIVEKO will give customers the chance to meet NIVEKO representatives in person, as well as representatives of Certikin, NIVEKO’s main business partner in Great Britain.
