2016 TESTIMONIALS

A big thank you to all our exhibitors and visitors for making SPATEX 2016 the success it was. Here's what a handful of our exhibitors had to say:

BOWMAN
All of us at Bowman think the event was a great success and a real credit to the hard work you have put in over the past few years. The move to the Ricoh Arena has taken the event to a much higher level.
We were especially pleased to see an increased number of European visitors to our stand during this year’s show, which brought us some interesting enquiries.

LOVIBOND TINTOMETER
This was probably the most successful SPATEX we have experienced in years. It has become a very professional event and the new location is beginning to attract a new audience, breathing life into the exhibition and new ideas to the seminars. It remains small enough, however, to retain its family atmosphere and encourage great networking. We look forward to the continued success when you receive the ‘key to the door’ and turn 21.

NSURE
Congratulations on a very successful 20th SPATEX exhibition from Nsure.
The exhibition was very well run and the vibe was very positive.
Nsure had a very good three days – meeting a current client bank and making contact with many prospective customers for the future.
Nsure will be back in 2017 to celebrate your “coming of age” 21st year.

LO-CHLOR CHEMICALS
SPATEX 2016 has been a great success for Lo-Chlor Chemicals Ltd which is a testament to the whole of the SPATEX organising team. The stand was always busy and the quality of the enquiries received was very positive.

SPA CREST EUROPE
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, everything was taken care of by the organisers. The Show was packed out with quality exhibitors and more importantly, quality visitors, to our stand and it seems everyone else's too!
The after Show party on Monday was good, the awards night dinner on Sunday was excellent and the other nights we were on site, we took a short trip into Coventry and ate at some fabulous restaurants.
I know that some last minute hot tub exhibitors had already asked for bigger stands at the 2017 event – before close of play on Monday!
It was all fitting for a Show celebrating its 20th anniversary, looking forward to 2017 already!

GOLDEN COAST
Continuing to exhibit at a quality venue like the Ricoh has really invigorated our Industry, giving many companies the confidence to invest in some great looking stands, something that was lacking at the previous venue. For Golden Coast, SPATEX always presents a great opportunity to showcase our latest innovations and share our knowledge with the Industry. With an increase in numbers this year, SPATEX 2016 exceeded our expectations giving  us a real boost to start the season. Having sombreros and moustaches for the exhibitor and visitor party was a masterstroke – well done team SPATEX.

O-CARE
We really enjoyed our debut as an exhibitor at SPATEX.
We’ve had great response and sales and I believe that our total package including our new App, the O-Care Aqua Tool has helped to generate a high amount of visitors to the stand.
We have always tried to add real value and educate users, O-Care Spa Water Care is a great product to make that happen especially when you combine this with App technology.
Our years of data and knowledge will bring O-Care and water maintenance to a whole new level which is exciting to say the least.

Sincere thanks to the entire SPATEX team for providing once again, a first class, successful Show.  SPATEX always provides us with an excellent platform to present our products and services and this year was no different. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

POLLET POOL GROUP
This was probably one of the busiest SPATEX Shows that I have personally experienced and we have received an abundance of product enquiries as a result.
I read this as a sure sign that the pool and spa Industry is in good shape and that Pollet Pool Group is growing in popularity and strength year on year.

PARAMOUNT POOLS
Just a quick note to say how impressed I was with the overall SPATEX experience this year. From the set up and throughout the Show, the team were always on hand to deal with any queries. The volume and more importantly, the quality of the leads were better than expected. A big ‘pat on the back’ to you all!

CERTIKIN INTERNATIONAL
SPATEX 2016 surpassed all our expectations with a steady flow of high quality visitors throughout the duration of the Show. We were particularly pleased to see more commercial visitors, especially from the holiday park sector.  It is easily the best way of accessing all that the UK wet leisure Industry has to offer, coupled with a great social networking experience.

AQUA WATER SYSTEMS
SPATEX 2016 was without a doubt the best Show yet. From setup to breakdown everything went without a hitch and special thanks go to all the SPATEX team. Visitor numbers were extremely good over all three days of the Show with some very good enquiries and sales. Bring on 2017 - can it be even better?

DESIGNWORKS TILES
As ever SPATEX has proved to be hugely successful, enjoyable, and in terms of new leads and existing business, the best for Designworks Tiles to date. The location and friendliness of everyone involved with SPATEX makes the show a pleasure to be associated with.

CALOREX
Foot fall was well up on last year with many more international visitors and  there was a marked improvement in the standard of this year's stands, Calorex’s naturally being one of them!
It was also great to see many people with specific projects to discuss and there was a real buzz in the room about the opportunities for 2016.

FAIRLOCKS
As always, it was a pleasure to be exhibiting at SPATEX 2016. We made some great contacts, did some networking and celebrating the 20th anniversary made the exhibition feel extra special. There was a lot of interest in the new underwater lighting technology we had on offer, and overall it was a really great Show. Fairlocks have always enjoyed being part of the SPATEX family and here's to many more years.

BRENNTAG
The leads were of a much higher quality this year.  We have had numerous enquiries for our Heatsavr product, including one from a garden design company.  It seems there is a genuine growing concern and interest in green issues which attracted many visitors to our stand.  All in all, an excellent Show for Brenntag.

OCEA AUTOMATIC COVERS
I thought this year's SPATEX Show really hit a new level of professional presentation for the UK pool Industry; certainly we would suggest SPATEX equalled, if not surpassed, the Aquanale Show as the place to exhibit your business.

PLASTICA
SPATEX 2016 was a very busy Show for Plastica. It was great to see the professional level of exhibitor stands and attend a well organised venue with a “can do” attitude. We have already booked for next year.

CRANBOURNE STONE
We've been delighted with the Show.  In the three years of exhibiting at SPATEX, 2016 has been the busiest, with a steady flow of quality leads, 2 per cent of which represents new customers.  We are loking for a bigger stand next year.

We have received a lot of interest, both from existing and new customers and received a lot of compliments about our stand.  We intend booking a bigger stand space next year to build on the positive momentum generated at this year's Show.

The Show is going from strength to strength since moving from Brighton to Coventry and more people are visiting than I can ever remember.

It's been a good Show for us and we are very satisfied with the business we have received.  The preparation and organisation has been excellent and I have been impressed by the quality of the stands and the companies.  We have had some fantastic feedback.  We are really looking forward to breaking into the UK market this year which is why we are working closely with Certikin and SPATEX has been an excellent showcase for doing just that.

BRIO GROUP
SPATEX was a fantastic Show for BRIO Group for a number of reasons.  The pre-show promotion was excellent, with a number of visitors coming through referrals from the website direct to ours and from the pre-show newsletters.  The level of support from Helen and Michele in the run up to the Show, answering queries and organisation was fantastic.  We were delighted with the opportunity to present a workshop on Entrapment Hazards, organised by ISPE.  The Show itself was a brilliant success for us with many leads from new customers, as well as the pre-arranged meetings with clients.  The networking opportunities were great.  All in all there was a great positive atmosphere and a great sense of professionalism.  I will look forward to attending next year as an Exhibitor again.
