A combination of pool and spa builders, installers, retailers, designers, architects, distributors, builders and manufacturers along with staff from local authorities, leisure centres, hotels and holiday complexes will be attending the show from Sunday, February 2 to Tuesday, February 4.
Michele Bridle, the show’s organiser, said their hard work would continue to make it the best possible show.
“The move to a more central location at the Ricoh Arena has certainly paid dividends with all the exhibition space having been sold,” she said.
“The industry has spoken loud and clear in its support for the move to the Ricoh Arena. The sell-out reinforces the fact that SPATEX is the wet leisure industry’s original and most representative show.
“We have attracted previous exhibitors as well as newcomers in over 150 categories and everything is in place for SPATEX 2014 to be the industry’s best show yet.
“We believe it has a broad appeal for those involved in swimming pools, spas, saunas or hydrotherapy both in domestic and commercial sectors and there is also a wide programme of demonstrations and 25 workshops led by industry experts.
“The SPATA and BISHTA Industry Awards and Gala Dinner will be hosted in the E.ON Lounge and there will be plenty of opportunities to network throughout the three days.
“We planned on this being our best ever show and with two months to go, we are certainly on course for that to happen.”
Chris Owen, senior events manager at the Ricoh Arena, said it was fantastic news SPATEX 2014 had already sold out their exhibitor space.
He said: “This is the 18th year of SPATEX and to be able to sell out so far in advance is testament to the fact that organisers are providing the industry with just the kind of show they demand.
“Our purpose-built Jaguar Exhibition Hall is ideal for this kind of exhibition and our central location and on-site car parks take the hassle away from attending for visitors.
“All the industry’s leading companies and personnel are coming along and it promises to be three days of non-stop activity throughout the Ricoh Arena.”
