If the SPATEX show’s success is an industry barometer, then the forecast is set fair for a vibrant, busy pool season ahead. The event attracted 1400 visitors from 23 countries to the Coventry Building Society Arena to see first-hand, one hundred stands, showcasing the latest innovations from the world’s leading suppliers and manufacturers.

During their visit, over a third of visitors sampled the free ISPE Workshop and parallel seminar programme, where energy saving and sustainability, along with the latest health and safety guidance, proved to be hot topics. Networking opportunities were plentiful and very well attended.

The annual BSPF Pool & Hot Tub Awards was followed by the traditional after-show visitor and exhibitor themed SPATEX Networking Party on the Wednesday. A large swim spa proved a major visitor attraction as a synchronised swimmer, a rower and a counter current swimmer were put through their paces for the launch of the Swimming Teachers’ Association ‘Swim to the Beat’ campaign, to raise valuable funds for the British Heart Foundation.

SPATEX returns to Coventry from Tuesday February 6th to Thursday February 8th 2024. Exhibitors who book before Wednesday May 31st can take advantage of a generous Early Buy Rate. Organiser, Michele Bridle joins the team in sending a heartfelt thank you to all exhibitors and visitors for making SPATEX 2023 the resounding success it was.
