The household annual SPATEX exhibition hosted at the newly refurbished Building Society Arena in Coventry has seen demand like no other in the build up to its 2022 show taking place on Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd February 2022. With 7 months to go and over 85% of exhibition space sold, the industry has shown unparalleled support for the UK’s annual SPATEX exhibition in returning its regular live event format.
A thrilled SPATEX Organiser, Michele Bridle, says: “We’ve received a fabulous response with exhibitors eager to snap up space to showcase products and innovations that haven’t received full public exposure because of the lockdown. There seems to be huge pent-up demand and all the signs are that SPATEX’s 25th live show will be one of the best yet.
Michele is also thrilled to be welcoming industry giants internationally from across the globe, including Hungary, USA, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Germany. The massively increased exhibitor demand has also been met with many requests for larger floor spacing, Michele quotes: “With many of our regular and new exhibitors requesting larger stands, we’ve had the very welcome job of restructuring the floor plan to free up more space.”
The newly branded Coventry Building Society Arena is currently undergoing a £10m refurbishment, promising exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to relax in a brand new state-of-the-art sports bar, named Anecdote. Located at the north entrance of the complex, it will serve ‘American-style food with a twist’ and craft ales and cocktails. The Arena’s main 6,000 sq metre exhibition hall is also included as part of the major refit, and will feature brand new flooring, a partition wall and a new entrances for both gates 27 and 28.
