“Yes the gavel has fallen,” declared the SPATEX organiser; “Exhibitor space is now sold out, which leaves me with the enviable task of re-organising the floor plan!

“The scene is now set for the UK’s largest gathering of the wet leisure industry, coupled with the celebration of SPATEX’s milestone 20th anniversary.”

A bumper list of over 100 exhibitors features leading hot tub and swim spa brands and wet leisure product specialists that made an early commitment to the exhibition, running from January 31 to February 2, such as:  Aqua Spa Supplies, Caldera Spas, Certikin International, Elite Spas, Fantasy Spas, Golden Coast, Passion Spas, Plastica, Pollet Pool Group, Procopi, SCP, Spa Crest Europe and Tuff Spas.

“With well over 100 companies, both national and international, including some of the industry’s biggest names, the 2016 show is hotly tipped to be the best yet,” enthused Michele.

“We’ve also lined up an impressive list of experts for three packed days of seminars and workshops with something of interest for all sectors of the wet leisure industry.

“I’m proud to say that the show is continually evolving and growing in stature year-on-year and is firmly established as the industry’s key event in the calendar.”

Companies making their exhibitor debuts during SPATEX 2016 will be Wellis and GMT Spas International, along with Behncke GmbH, Brio, Cyrano Ltd, PHNIX Eco-Energy Solution Ltd, International Business Development, Specialist Toughened Glass Ltd, and Stoneworld.

Also among the sold out list of stand bookings will be Coast Spas Manufacturing and the Canadian hot tub and swim spa manufacturer will be joined by Total Water Products/Lo-Chlor, ProMinent Fluid Controls, JetStream UK Ltd, Sterling Hydrotech, and JAK. as a group of previous SPATEX exhibitors that are making their first appearance at the Ricoh Arena venue after promoting their products and services at the annual event’s former host location in Brighton.

“I’m delighted that so many spa companies have chosen SPATEX as their exhibition of choice,” said Michele.

“Many of these companies will be using SPATEX as a launch pad to unveil new products for their dealer networks to supply to the market in 2016.

“SPATEX can justifiably claim to represent both the spa and hot tub sector, as well as the pool trade. It’s clear how the exhibition has evolved over its 20 year history to make it the great annual industry event that it now is.”

Michele and her team have also announced that they have lined up a ‘not-to-be missed’ Mexican-themed networking reception and SPATEX 20th Anniversary Party, commencing at 5pm; after the second day of the exhibition concludes on Monday, February 1.

“All exhibitors and visitors will be warmly invited to this not-to-be missed anniversary party,” said Michele. “There will be free drinks, nibbles, music and fun!”
