2022 Testimonials

SPATEX 2022 was an extremely well run and enjoyable show and we were delighted with the footfall of both trade and public customers. Catching up with many old friends and colleagues was great. Seeing and hearing the reactions to our window walled stainless steel spa from all who visited the stand was heartwarming. One person commented “that’s the coolest hot tub I’ve ever seen” which made the effort to exhibit completely worthwhile. We will be back next year.

From Certikin’s point of view, 2022 was the best attended SPATEX for many years. We are delighted with the quantity and quality of footfall on our stand, with key decision makers making up a high proportion. With no physical show for two years, we found visitors wanted to get out and see the new products for themselves. Viewing on a screen is no substitute for being able to feel and touch the equipment.   We launched two fantastic new products this year – the incomparable, can’t-do-without  Smartpool and the state-of-the-art Unibeo panel pool system, and they both attracted an enormous amount of interest.

This is the first time we have exhibited at SPATEX, having visited two years ago, and we are delighted with the reception. The hassle of travelling from France in Covid times has been more than worthwhile. Visitors have been drawn to the colours and design of our showers, the lightness and strength of the aqua bike and the convenience of the semi-rigid Octopus spa.

Lots of interest at the show. Delighted to see people are at last taking training more seriously and professionally and starting to invest in their teams. It helps to raise standards in the industry as a whole.

I am delighted with the response we have received. The show has been very well attended. We’ve had a lot of enquiries and feedback, particularly regarding the new PWTAG booklet, Hot Tubs for Home.

We could genuinely not be happier with how this show has gone. The turn-out has been incredible, seeing old faces and many new. The response has been amazing. It’s been the best show to date. It’s also been a real pleasure experiencing such positivity from all involved. We are already discussing next year’s stand!

2022 was the best SPATEX ever! Our LPW one-piece display pool drew a lot of interest and was sold on day two. We have lots of new enquires to follow up on our return to the office. Well done Michele and the team for staging a fantastic event. Let’s make the next show, four days!

What a fantastic show and it’s so good to be in circulation again. The first day was incredible; everyone on the stand was flat out and we got so many great leads.  We’ve received such excellent feedback to our new products. We hope to return next year with a much larger stand.

We booked a stand quite late and this is our first year of exhibiting as it’s not normally an industry we target. We received a good amount of interest on Tuesday and Wednesday but Thursday was very quiet for us.

This is our fourth SPATEX and it’s been the best by a long way. We relaunched Tuff Spas and signed five new dealers at the show. Not bad for three days’ work.

SPATEX is the leading event in wet leisure that brings together professionals from all corners of our industry. The three days gave Heatstar the opportunity to not only catch up with existing customers, but it also gave us a great chance to showcase our products to a diverse flow of visitors. Yet again the support and guidance from the SPATEX team was excellent as they went above and beyond to make sure all exhibitors were taken care of.

It was great to be back at Spatex, our first time in four years.

For us it wasn’t about product this year, it was about seeing our clients. Spatex represents a great opportunity for #TeamGC to meet customers old and new, the atmosphere felt positive, and we all loved it.

Great show, foot traffic better than expected! Had a great response to the three new products (Tilestone Spa, Manual Safety Cover & UltraSwim panel kit) we featured on the stand. Well done Spatex team.

Where do I start? Happy is an understatement! A really well-run show with super organisation. It’s brought us lots of new customers and I am looking forward to returning next year with a 50 per cent bigger stand. Everyone has been so happy to see each other again – it’s been a real tonic in bad times. SPATEX feels like home.

Thank you to the SPATEX team for putting on an excellent event again. It was thoroughly enjoyed by us and our members that attended. Several of which attending all three days to maximise the CPD opportunities in the seminar rooms. We’ll see you again next year.
