A picture special from the recent Coventry exhibition…

NUMBERS INCREASED to 1,707 visitors over the three-day event.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary at the Coventry Building Society Arena, it is fitting that this milestone year drew a record number of SPATEX visitors, with attendance figures almost 20 per cent up on the previous year.

The British Swimming Pool Federation organisers were delighted to welcome more exhibitors, more innovations and new products, which all added up to a satisfactory 1,707 visitors for the 115 exhibitors.

SPAFLO CONFIRMED the signing of legendary Olympian Colin Jackson as its new brand ambassador.

As SPATEX’s main provider of education and training, the ISPE workshop programme always dovetails well with the exhibition’s showcase, and this year was no exception. A diverse number of topics made up the informative ISPE workshop programme in Arena 1 and, likewise, that of the seminar programme in Arena 2.

The two seminar arenas recorded a total of 597 attendees. The hard-working Pool & Spa SCENE broadcast live from the show throughout the three days including an exclusive interview with legendary 110m high hurdles Olympic gold medallist Colin Jackson, now an ambassador for the Spa Flo range of luxury stainless steel spas.

Pool & Spa also broadcast performances from stand-out exhibitors such as Aqua Technics, MySpa, Ocea UK, Paramount, Plastica and Superior – to name just a few. The Show’s Organiser, Michele Bridle, says: “I am proud that those three SPATEX days in Coventry each year unite the industry and prepares it for the pool season ahead. “This 28th edition really did have it all and has spurred the team into creating something even more special in 2025. Onwards and upwards!”

SPATEX 2025 returns to The Coventry Building Society Arena – Tuesday 4th to Thursday 6th February.
