SCP Europe, a subsidiary of PoolCorp, the world’s largest wholesale distributor of swimming pool supplies and spas, chose Toledo in Spain as the venue for its biennial Vendor Showcase and Sales Conference recently.

An attendance of more than 230 participants included SCP Europe’s sales, marketing, purchasing, technical and after-sales teams as well as PoolCorp’s top management.
The market’s primary suppliers, from 14 different countries, also took part with representatives staffing some 40 show stands and delivering over 50 technical and commercial seminars in the complimentary conference programme. They included Hayward, Pentair, Maytronics, Monarch, Kripsol, Rain Bird, Plastiflex, Balboa, Flexinox, Beachcomber, Vogue, UWE who were able to exchange information on market innovations in a convivial networking environment
“SCP places great importance on its privileged relationships with its main partners and customers, as illustrated by these days of personalised training sessions and meetings,” commented Dash Ganeson, managing director of SCP UK.
“SCP remains faithful to its distributor role, working to bring manufacturers and wholesale customers together in a spirit of constructive partnership.”
On the final day, more than 100 VIP customers were also invited to see the products that will be on offer through SCP in 2014 and to talk directly with the vendors before the event closed with a gala dinner and a magnificent firework display.
