IN BRIEF ELEVATE ORGANISERS POSTPONE EVENT UNTIL 2022 Organisers of the annual Elevate show, which takes place at London’s ExCel venue, have announced that due to the delayed easing of the final stage of restrictions, their 2021 edition which was scheduled to take place in September, will now run on the 15 and 16 of June 2022. A recent communication from Elevate stated: “As event organisers, our role is to create a safe, successful and well thought-out event for the sectors we serve, and it is with this in mind we have decided to give the Physical Activity, Health and Performance Sectors time to regroup and recover fully before hosting the industry’s premier annual event again.”

ANNOUNCEMENT MADE FOR SIXTH HOLIDAY VILLAGE Center Parcs has announced that it has identified a site for its sixth UK holiday village and have secured an option agreement to acquire privately owned woodland at Oldhouse Warren in Worth, near Crawley, West Sussex. Center Parcs will now undertake rigorous site surveys and pre-planning works to ensure the woodland meets the specific requirements of a Center Parcs village, as well as carrying out a programme of community engagement with a view to submitting a planning application to the local authority in due course. In line with the other Center Parcs villages, it is intended that the site will include lodges, a range of indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, a Subtropical Swimming Paradise and an Aqua Sana Spa. The development is expected to cost between £350m and £400m and create approximately 1,500 permanent local jobs once operational and a further 1,000 jobs during construction.

NIVEKO Provides The Perfect Package For Its Partners Having established partners across Europe, NIVEKO pools are now available for purchase by customers in 18 countries. Each trusted partner goes into great detail advising clients on the options for their dream configuration, and subsequently install and commission the pool. In order to provide them with the best possible training and information about the products that they sell, the company’s partners are always invited to NIVEKO’s headquarters, located in the Czech Republic. There, they are given thorough training about the company itself, the wide range of products it offers, technical information, including a detailed description of the product, its properties, configuration options and installation method, and, last but not least, marketing support. The visit always includes an excursion to the company’s production premises, where partners can see for themselves the entire process of a pool being manufactured. There, they are given a demonstration of the company’s cutting-edge technologies and automated processes, and also

have the chance to see the great amount of human involvement that goes into each pool. However, NIVEKO’s support for its partners does not end there. Each receives a free marketing package to promote sales. Assisting in the first installation of a pool is a NIVEKO Sales Manager, who oversees the project to ensure everything runs smoothly. As a result, new partners gain trust and important experience for subsequent installations. In the event of any queries, the partner may contact a relevant NIVEKO Sales Manager and there is also a special technical support line to call too. Marketing support for partners is provided by allocated marketing managers, whom partners can contact for assistance with both on and offline promotions. It goes without saying that a broad range of direct marketing support is available, from catalogues through to samples of pool walls. NIVEKO s.r.o. +420 572 693 246 www.niveko-pools.com

Turnberry Spa Transformation Brings New Luxury Dimension The exquisite new Turnberry Spa has unveiled a new level of five-star opulence as part of the resort’s continued multi-million pound transformation. The Spa interior has been reinvigorated following an extensive 18-month restoration with guests able to take full advantage of the additional luxuries and a new range of treatments on offer, designed to revitalise both body and mind. At the heart of the Spa is a 65-foot, heated indoor swimming pool, from which users can gaze at those incredible views across the famous Championship links, Ailsa Craig and beyond to the Isle of Arran. Among the new additions, a completely new poolside ocean-view bio-sauna with a floor to ceiling vista, ladies and gents relax saunas and steam rooms, experience showers and ice fountains which have further enhanced what was already an idyllic place to unwind and relax in five-star luxury.

Treatments are designed by ESPA, offering an indulgent selection of body wraps, body scrubs and massages, including Hot Stone therapy, hydrotherapy, reflexology and aromatherapy. Working not only to target the physical needs but also emotional requirements, spa guests will experience a more meaningful and holistic journey of rejuvenation, to maintain the positive balance between body and mind. Ralph Porciani, General Manager at Turnberry, said: “The newly-restored Turnberry Spa has been completed to the highest possible standards and now provides an even better experience for our guests to enjoy some well-deserved five-star relaxation.”
