SPATEX Announces First Ever Specialist Spa Sessions


SPATEX2015 the pool and spa show


Exclusive Zodiac Offering From Lighthouse Pools Set To Expand


Lighthouse Pools and Zodiac Pool Care are pleased to announce their long term agreement to supply certain products, exclusively, in the UK.


SPATEX have announced that on Tuesday 3 February at the 2015 show, a full day of specialist spa training workshops for both the commercial and domestic sector is being presented.


Promising to be bigger, bolder and better and returning for the second year to Coventry's Ricoh Arena, SPATEX is the first UK wet leisure exhibition to dedicate a whole day specifically to spa training. The free one-day spa sessions will be information packed, covering topics such as; ‘The water treatment of display spas’, ‘Commercial spa management’, ‘Water treatment for domestic spas’ and ‘Commercial spas versus domestic spas – which type of unit to use where and why’. Further spa session titles will be announced soon.


Ross Alcock of the ISPE says: “We have responded to visitor feedback which called for a greater focus on spas in addition to that already awarded to pools. Plus, a few months ago, the ISPE presented a one-day seminar entirely on the subject of spas, which was extremely well received, and there was a distinct demand for information in this specialist area. “We are putting together an expert-led package with something for everybody who is involved with either domestic or commercial spas, whether it be managing their use, installing, servicing or selling them.” SPATEX Organiser, Michele Bridle says: “So much more than just an exhibition, as the leading pool and spa Show, SPATEX prides itself on being at the vanguard of training and education. Thanks to ISPE’s involvement, no other wet leisure exhibition is able to offer so much specialist spa information, all under one roof, on one day and all free of charge! This is just one of many exciting announcements we have scheduled so watch this space!” For the Sunday and Monday of SPATEX 2015, planning is well under way for the ever-popular ISPE-organised programme of Workshops. More content will be revealed soon, but there will be something of interest to people from all areas of the pool and spa trade.

Serco Appointed By Moirai To Manage Local Waterpark


Moirai Capital Investments has appointed Serco to manage and operate the Wet ‘n’ Wild waterpark in North Shields, Tyne and Wear. The waterpark, which went into administration in October 2013, was acquired by Moirai Capital Investments and leased to Serco for a period of 25 years. Moirai Capital Investments


will transform and refurbish the waterpark into a modern family leisure attraction. Both Serco and Moirai Capital Investments have extensive experience in the leisure market; Serco manages 75 leisure centres across the UK including two national sports centres on behalf of Sport England. Moirai Capital Investments is a leading and experienced developer of sport, leisure and entertainment facilities in the UK, and together the two companies aim to create a leisure destination for the local and surrounding community of Tyne and Wear.


It will take an investment in excess of £1.1m to transform the waterpark ready for opening in summer 2014. The project will bring a much needed employment boost to the area and Serco is already recruiting for various job vacancies at the waterpark from lifeguards and receptionists to cleaning and catering staff. The Wet ‘n’ Wild waterpark offers over one kilometre of slides including the hurricane, the kamikaze, the abyss and calamity canyon. Work is already well underway on the development of a new reception, shop and café. The former gym and dance studios will be converted into specially designed children’s soft play and birthday party area, whilst the former health suite will become a dedicated family changing village. Kevin Thomas, Transition Director of Serco’s Leisure business said: “Wet ‘n’ Wild is a great facility and we are looking forward to transforming it together with Moirai Capital Investments to give it a new lease of life. We are working hard to get the complex ready for the summer opening with our teams busy re-configuring the reception, introducing new food into the café, and most importantly lowering admission prices.” Martin Barber, Chairman of Moirai Capital Investments said: “We are delighted to be investing in Wet ‘n’ Wild so that the people of North Shields can once again enjoy this great facility.”
