Contenders for bumper wet leisure ceremony

Leading hot tub dealers are among a group of prestigious trade award winners who have now been shortlisted to represent the UK in contesting the next EUSA European Pool & Spa Awards during SPATEX 2018.

The BISHTA members, who have all landed major award honours this year, will be taking part in a special bumper night of awards and combined industry celebration as part of the double anniversary edition of the British Pool and Hot Tub Awards. The evening will include the European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations ceremony for the Pool & Spa Awards as part of the annual Industry Gala Dinner hosted by BISHTA and SPATA in the Premier Lounge at the Ricoh Arena, following the opening day of the 22nd edition of SPATEX in Coventry.

Dedicated Artesian Spas dealerships Cannings H20 and North Spas have been joined by specialist Jacuzzi retailer Euphoria Lifestyle and Marquis, L.A Spas and Superior Spas retailer Welsh Hot Tubs in the shortlisted group taken from this year’s prestigious British Pool and Hot Tub Awards winners who have now been lined up for prospective European recognition during the evening; which will be marking the 40th anniversary of the SPATA Awards and the 10th anniversary of the BISHTA Awards.

The shortlist for European accolades also includes: Asher Swimpool Centre, Castle Hot Tubs, Cheshire Wellness, Gillingham Pools, Grayfox Swimming Pools, New Dawn Pools, Origin Leisure, Portrait Pools and Enclosures, Rigo Spa, Rockingham Swimming Pools, Tanby Pools, Westcountry Leisure, and XL Pools.

This year Complete Spas, who supply Artesian Spas and Marquis; as well as options from Elite Spas, were among the prestigious golden winners who were praised by EUSA President Andreas Petridis at the EUSA Awards hosted during Forum Piscine, in Bologna, Italy.

“The calibre of the competition entries was outstanding,” declared Andreas.

After missing out on the Gold Award to Complete Spas in the EUSA’s Residential Hot Tubs category, Silver Award-winner Welsh Hot Tubs, and Bronze Award-winner Euphoria Lifestyle now have another shot at golden success in January and will be hoping for top accolades this time round.

Meanwhile, hot tub dealers and pool specialists are being warned that time is running out to be among those considered as the prospective winners of the various awards in the respective BISHTA and SPATA categories in the British Pool and Hot Tub Awards ceremony, as membership companies must submit their online entries before the November 10 deadline.
