Extension is a virtual reality for SPATEX

Visitors to the extended SPATEX Virtual exhibition can gain the benefit of obtaining information on training and products along with new special promotions of unmissable opportunities for dealers until the platform closes on March 6.

Organisers of this year’s unique SPATEX Virtual format have been promoting the fact that there is currently a unique reality of an extended period for the wet leisure showcase where registered visitors can still access ISPE seminars and exhibition booths, including those that are providing the ‘not to be missed’ chance to become dealers of Beachcomber hot tubs, as well as Master Spas hot tubs and swim spas.

Family-run wet leisure and outdoor product specialist Award Leisure has been utilising the online capability of the SPATEX Virtual exhibition hosted on the vFairs platform to promote its new status as exclusive UK distributor for the famous Beachcomber brand.

During SPATEX Virtual the Beachcomber booth is showcasing new Silver, Gold and Platinum dealer packages as part of a limited opportunity for showroom retailers to become a supplier of Beachcomber hot tubs with special edition designs from the Canadian manufacturer.

Award Leisure Franchise also has a virtual booth that will benefit from the extension period to promote the British Hot Tubs brand and franchise opportunities with ‘strong returns’ and from a choice of Premium Dealership (Limited Availability) or full ‘One-stop-shop’ Franchise opportunities on offer with comprehensive marketing supportive from an experience wet leisure and outdoor product team.

Master Spas has also made a big splash on the SPATEX Virtual platform with the promotion of ‘legendary’ product designs and new dealer opportunities within a dedicated Master Spas UK network that is being rolled out to provide nationwide coverage for the leading swim spa and hot tub manufacturer.

As part of its SPATEX Virtual online exhibition presence Master Spas has been highlighting its ‘made in the USA’ credentials and exclusive Master Spas UK dealer opportunities with competitive margins for hot tubs from the state-of-the-art Michael Phelps Legend designs and Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa range.

To increase its presence in the UK market, Riptide Pools Ltd has also been showcasing its portfolio of hot tub and swim spa options as part of a 2021 recruitment drive for retailers. The SPATEX Virtual booth of Riptide Pools, as part of the Crystal Island Wellness Group, is helping to highlight competitive margins for dealers and boost a wide range of hot tub and swim spa designs, including Infinity hot tubs. Models in the Infinity range are currently being promoted by seven-store Hot Tub Barn hot tub and swim spa specialist showroom network with focus on the outstanding neck and shoulder massage capability.

Caldera Spas distributor Certikin, which has been running a ‘Treat yourself to some TLC with Caldera’ marketing campaign to hot tub consumers during the past year has also secured a booth at SPATEX Virtual promoting it’s Certikin Spa Covers that have been created with the highest grade materials at its manufacturing facility in Leeds.

Certikin is also showcasing the Harvia sauna and spa products, as well as the Xclear Surface disinfection solution that provides safe UV-C disinfection as part of a compact and lightweight system. The virtual booth is also highlighting Quantum, a powerful pool water sterilisation technology that utilises ceramic nano crystal technology.

Proclaimed as a ‘one of a kind system’, the Certikin Plant Room Shield is also being promoted at SPATEX Virtual. It has been designed to detect leaks within the swimming pool plant room so that major flood damage can be prevented.

Meanwhile, SPATEX Organiser Michele Bridle has reported that there is no need to worry if you have not yet viewed any or all of the 22 seminars organised by ISPE for this year’s SPATEX Virtual edition. These seminars received an audience of 2,435 people over the three ‘live’ days of the online exhibition and, as with the exhibition booths, they can still be accessed in the Seminar Arena via the lobby area of the online platform, pictured, until the March 6 deadline.

“The high amount of content that visitors downloaded, and the huge amount of interest shown in the seminar programme, are testimony to the value of the show,” declared Michele Bridle.

“Whilst we are proud to have created a high-quality virtual platform for our industry to connect at this time, there is no substitute for face-to-face business, so we are looking forward to the return of a live event at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry from February 1 to February 3, 2022.”
