SPATA Members On Show At Grand Designs Live


The cooperation that can exist between SPATA members was demonstrated at this premier consumer show at London’s ExCel, where a number of companies supported their Trade Association in staffing a stand for the nine day show. The event, made popular by Kevin McCloud’s Channel 4 programme was again a hit with the visitors.


Crosdil Leisure, London Swimming Pool Co, Pool People, Portrait Pools, Tanby Pools and Waterstream all took at least one day on the stand to deal with customer enquiries and to signpost relevant people to other SPATA members, where applicable. Other SPATA members decided to exhibit for the whole duration of the show and so it was that John and Lynn Scott at EPS sited their stand in the Grand Build section of the show. Cheshire Wellness had their stand in the Grand Gardens section and a number of their team members staffed their stand, including Andy Philips, Kate Klein and Will Skyner. Meanwhile, Hydropool (BISHTA members) have been very busy again, not only at Grand Designs, but also at The Ideal Home Show and The Boat Show.


The next Grand Designs Live event is at the


NEC from 4 to 6 October.


In addition to the above, there are a number of other annual events and a whole series of regional and county shows taking place throughout the year which various BISHTA members will be attending and promoting their products. One such event is The Goodwood Festival of Speed, in Sussex from 11 to 14 July, where Terete Hot Tubs are exhibiting their range of cedar wood deep water hot tubs, saunas and plunge pools.


John Scott, the latest meeting took place in Brighton from 25 to 26 April at the DeVere Grand Hotel.


At the meeting, EUSA welcomed its twelfth member with APPW from Romania joining Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Membership is open to any National Pool and / or Spa Association. Other topics discussed in Brighton were the final preparations for the EUSA Pool and Spa Awards to be held for the first time on Thursday 24 October as part of aquanale 2013 in Cologne. Each National Association will be permitted to submit up to six entries in each of the three categories available in the first year: Indoor Domestic Pools; Outdoor Domestic Pools; and Domestic Spas (hot tubs, not swim spas).


EUSA Expands And Prepares For Awards


The European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations (EUSA) is a strong collective voice within Europe for the pool and spa trade and with the UK taking on the Presidency again this year through

The importance of sharing information on European Standards was also emphasised during the meeting, as there are many potential bits of work that can impact on our industry. Colleagues also agreed to work even harder at sharing good practice from each other, especially in relation to learning about services offered to members and income generation ideas that each Association has. To balance up the hard work, EUSA members were invited to experience the charm of one of Brighton’s restaurants, called The Ginger Dog, where they were able to relax with colleagues and learn more about the tradition of the Great British Pub!
