Organisers of the UK Pool and Spa Expo have promised that visitors will gain a bumper display of hot tubs during the fourth edition of the wet leisure showcase at the Birmingham NEC in November.
New Events Director and UKPSE Organiser Claire Saunders is relishing the prospect of a quick return to the NEC for the second time in 2015, following the third outing at the start of the year, and has promised a large display from hot tub companies during the exhibition, which will be running from November 22 to 24 in the Pavilion Hall.
“Now with an exciting new dateline, positioned perfectly for companies to show their latest products and services, the UK Pool & Spa Expo is back and will be showing the largest selection of hot tubs anywhere in the UK,” said Claire.
“The Expo also delivers swimming pool suppliers, pool and spa ancillaries, maintenance and accessories making it your one stop shop for any wet leisure requirement.”
Claire reported that continuing their residency at the NEC has been a very conscious decision from the organising team, with the new Resort World opening this year the appeal to visitors, and the networking opportunities that are so important at these events will expand exponentially.
“The UK Pool & Spa Expo is proud to offer the UK an event that both trade and consumer visitors can attend, the event was created after listening to the industry and what they wanted,” added Claire.
“Entry to UK Pool & Spa Expo is free of charge, parking is complimentary and there is free wifi throughout the venue. Add to this an international airport, train station and motorway network and the decision is clear to return.”
