SPATEX 2020 gets the GREEN light!

Hotel, Sport & Leisure Thu, Sep 26, 2019 1:13 PM

Yes, the light has turned from amber to green, the countdown has begun and it’s all systems go!Four months away, with exhibition space selling out fast, forecasters predict an early sell-out for the UK’s ONLY water leisure expo.

Organiser, Michele Bridle: “It’s heartening to see so many companies returning and requesting larger stands, for example Aqua Warehouse, Astral, SCP, Spa Solutions, Dryden Aqua, Paramount Pools, Lighthouse Pools, Ardex, Blue Whale Spas, Ocea, Passion Spas, Spa Parts Vortex have all requested more space. This is coupled with a significant number of new companies entering the fray for the first time.”

SPATEX takes a GREEN approach

Sustainability is the watchword of our times.Always looking to stay relevant and current, the industry’s show is adopting and promoting an eco-friendly approach.

“Conscious of climate change, the depletion of the world’s natural resources and the need to reduce the Industry’s dependency on plastic, the SPATEX team felt that we should be doing our bit to promote a greater awareness of the environment,” says Michele. “After all, we can all make a difference. We have taken a long hard look at our operation and come up with ways in which we can take a more sustainable direction for 2020. The regular SPATEX exhibitor and visitor should see quite a number of changes, both in the exhibition hall and at SPATEX’s traditional networking party which this year will be appropriately green themed. From supplying recyclable lanyards, compostable containers and cutlery, minimal food packaging, providing recycling bins in the exhibition hall to the SPATEX Goes Green networking event on Wednesday January 29th… we will be endeavouring, wherever possible, to do our bit for the planet and encouraging our visitors and exhibitors to do the same.”

ISPE shows how to go GREEN

With the double seminar programme playing such an integral part in SPATEX’s visitor experience, it is of course only natural that the 2020 Green theme is extended to the free-to-attend ISPE workshops in Arena I and the parallel seminar programme in Arena 2. Alongside a raft of many other important and relevant topics, there will be technical and inspirational talks on how we can all play our part in becoming more eco-aware. Take for instance:

Arena 1 Weds Jan 29th 11.00-11.30 Energy Savings for your Pool by Will Dando – the use of pool covers and other technology to lower running costs.

Arena 1 Wed Jan 29th 1.30-1.50 Energy Savings via the use of automatic valves by Jimmy Lamb

ISPE General Secretary, Ross Alcock, says: “The ISPE SPATEX 2020 programme features 16 new titles and at least six sessions with an ‘environment-friendly’ theme. For ‘seasoned’ SPATEX visitors, with its ever-changing dynamics and themes, the 2020 edition will offer a multitude of things that will be new, and for those who have been pondering whether to attend SPATEX or not, 2020 has surely got to be the year to give it a go!”

See GREEN!

SPATEX is, of course, the ideal hunting ground to source new products and innovations. New ways to save energy will of course be high on the hundred plus international and domestic exhibitors’ agenda, so expect lots of new products and special offers that support a low energy, low carbon footprint.

BUT… we are NOT Green!
