Each year, EUSA holds an awards event to celebrate the tremendous work of their Association members. The European Pool and Spa Awards are held annually at a different pool and spa exhibition across Europe, and the 2019 event is the seventh time the event has been held with aquanale in Cologne, Germany providing the venue on Thursday 7 November. In the 2019 competition, 186 pools from ten countries participated (Austria, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK). Judges from eight countries awarded points for each project. The special thing about the EUSA Awards is it is a competition in which “the best of the best” are chosen, because usually, the national associations submit entries to EUSA shortlisted from their national award winners. EUSA President Mille Örnmark from the Swedish Swimming Federation Svenska Badbranschen (SBB) moderated the award ceremony, where 21 winners were announced in seven award categories to represent the spectrum of work undertaken by the members of each of the ten participating European National Pool and Spa Associations. EUSA represents approximately 2,500 companies from all areas of the supply chain, adding value to swimming pool and spa businesses. It represents artisans, wholesalers and manufacturers and the industry of the swimming pool and spa businesses across Europe. The EUSA Awards were judged by top industry professionals from across Europe. Judges assessed the entries on their visual impact, innovation and aesthetic appeal. The identity of each entry was not given to

the judges; this meant that judges could vote for any entry that they believed to be the best. The EUSA judges aimed to award a Gold, Silver and Bronze award winner in each category, subject to there being sufficient entries, of suitable quality.

REPRESENTING THE UK The BSPF congratulated all of this years award winners both at home and abroad. Chris Hayes, BSPF Managing Director commented: “The BSPF is proud to celebrate the success of the BISHTA and SPATA members who won awards in this year’s EUSA Awards. Competitions such as this, and the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards, hosted by BISHTA and SPATA, give the British Water Leisure Industry a platform from which to amplify our message nationwide promoting the high standards and exceptional quality of work being produced by BISHTA and SPATA members across the UK.” Looking forward to 2020, the message is clear in providing water leisure companies across Europe with a reason to celebrate their achievements and the opportunity to promote pool and spa equipment as an exciting and inspiring lifestyle choice for consumers to spend their leisure time on.

The BSPF is proud to celebrate the success of the BISHTA and SPATA members who won awards in this year’s EUSA Awards”
