We went to the Show without too much expectation. We’ve not attended for the last five years but thought we should in 2018. We were pleasantly surprised by the number and the quality of the leads. A high percentage of the people we met have already placed orders with us since the Show.

The stand was consistently busy and both the quantity and quality of the visitors were excellent. We made several significant sales from the stand and received a high number of product enquiries as well, which will hopefully lead to further long-term business relationships. The Ricoh crew and SPATEX team were extremely helpful, efficient and attentive at all times.

SPATEX 2018 was in one word: EXCELLENT! Aside from the excellent organisation and communication to exhibitors and visitors, we were particularly impressed by the overall quality of the Show this year. It was like a small version of Piscine Lyon.

We were very pleased with the ISPE Workshop attendance, particularly the first day which recorded the highest attendance ever on day one of SPATEX! It was probably the best Show ever – it looked and felt dynamic, with plenty of visitors and lots of enquiries on our stand.  We welcomed a number of new members and students and were delighted to see some of our members that we only see at SPATEX.  We had a lot of interest in the ISPE CPD scheme and handed out numerous information packs to potential new members and students.

This was the best SPATEX ever! Not only were we busy on the stands but the quality of the attendance was outstanding. I have never worked so hard on a stand in all my life. In fact, we were so busy I made a note we need more staff for next year! We are now struggling to deal with all the enquiries. Not a bad problem to have!

CPC have enjoyed another good Show at the Ricoh. The Show layout was excellent and the seminar programme was compelling, covering many ‘hot’ pertinent topics of the day. Visitor numbers were spread evenly across all three days, and it was good to meet "old" friends alongside some new first-time visitors. As ever, the Show provides a good platform to unveil new initiatives and products quickly and effectively to a large audience.

As always, SPATEX was a fantastic show for us and, once again, exceeded our expectations. Not only is the exhibition an opportunity for us to catch up with existing customers, but it also gives us a platform to show prospective customers who we are and what we can offer. The organisation is first class and the planning and set-up process is made seamless thanks to the SPATEX team.

By the morning of day three we had received 69 high quality leads, which represented about 10 per cent new business. The show is always a pleasure to attend and we look forward to exhibiting every year.

SPATEX opened its doors to another busy show this year. The Lovibond® team took a relaxed approach – not in our attitude, of course - we would never do that. But the informal stand and comfortable chairs proved immensely popular and an excellent opportunity to catch up with customers old and new. And it was obviously less challenging on the legs – leaving us fit to enjoy all the networking activities that the SPATEX team always organise so well.

The Certikin stand was buzzing throughout all three days of the show and the efforts of the Certikin team were rewarded with multiple high-quality leads from new customers as well as old. There was a great deal of interest in our ground-breaking new products, particularly the ingenious Tieleman moving floor and the revolutionary Blue Connect smart water analyser.  From build-up to break-down, SPATEX 2018 was well organised, with all operations running like clockwork. It seemed that all exhibitors upped their game this year and the bigger exhibition paid off, with the show having a very slick, professional feel. Certikin looks forward to SPATEX 2019!

We have seen a 50 per cent increase in leads in comparison to the previous year and the quality of the leads has been excellent. A lot of interest was shown in our unique Pooldek flooring system, that gives a temporary hard floor above a swimming pool, to hold a party or event.

SPATEX 2018 was a very positive show for Bowman and we will definitely be exhibiting again in 2019. From our point of view, we were very encouraged by the significant increase in spa and hot tub exhibitors and visitors, plus the excellent seminar and workshop opportunities, which add another dimension to the show.

This year’s SPATEX was our best ever. It gave us the opportunity to catch up with our existing clients, and more importantly we made contact with potential new clients, one of which has already visited us at our factory and is in the process of placing an order for a bespoke spa. May we congratulate all the SPATEX team on the excellent organisation and assistance given both before and during the event.

We’re already looking forward to SPATEX 2019.

Plastica had undoubtedly the star of the show with our “Hot Dub” project which drew visitors on to our stand for the duration of the show. We also introduced our range of in-house manufactured Argonaut and AG Pumps which also attracted great interest from both existing and new visitors to SPATEX. The organisation from Michele and her team was as always first class and we look forward to returning next year for another successful show.

Riptide pools and spas had a great SPATEX with better than expected foot fall. The SPATEX team were excellent to work with.
