It’s Showtime Again At The NEC

Aqua Warehouse Group will again be returning to the NEC

A new look Hot Tub Living Expo returns to Birmingham’s NEC from 24 – 25 October with a special Exhibitor VIP taking place the evening before. This issue we take a look at what’s in store for visitors to the renamed event By Jon Wadeson


he renamed Hot Tub Living Expo event will run in Hall 11 at the NEC this year and the New Events organising team believe it will have the largest selection of hot tubs and swim spas on show anywhere in the UK. After last year’s UK Pool & Spa Expo, the event rebranded to better reflect the type of exhibitors it was attracting and the direction that it wanted to go in. So this year, visitors to the Birmingham show will see the introduction of outdoor furniture, hot tub screens, heating, spares, chemicals, pool covers, and other ancillary products. In addition to a wide range of great products on display, there will also be a series of free seminars and live debates running over the two main days. These include The Great Hot Tub Debate plus Technical and Aftercare forums which will be covering issues such as repairs, servicing, trends and failures. An area called ‘The Marketplace’ is also new this year and with its introduction, visitors can now meet many new companies and catch up with others that may not have exhibited in the UK for a while. This new area has a display and a central zone for attendees to have meetings with suppliers and secure the best deals for products. 67-68_SPN_Oct_16_Show_Preview_HTLE.indd 67
