Following strong showings in Melbourne and Sydney, the Perth Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo also attracted excellent numbers, breaking the existing record for the event.
SPASA WA manager Bryce Steele says the good weather helped bring consumers along in record numbers to the Claremont Showgrounds.
“The sun was out and so was the West Australian public,” he says. “The extensive marketing campaign and recent signs of improvement in consumer confidence and spending made the perfect recipe for a great weekend.
“We commend those exhibitors who made their stands look the part, and I want to offer a big thank you to our major sponsor Freedom Pools for once again getting behind the event.”
The ultimate backyard
The expo was marketed as the best place to see everything needed to create the ultimate backyard under one roof and Steele says the consumers weren’t disappointed, with pools, spas, landscaping, outdoor furniture, decking, paving, outdoor kitchens, lighting and more on show.
“The Ultimate Backyard was a spectacular part of the expo and a big thank you goes to Nic, Ryan & the Landscapes WA team who worked tirelessly to bring it all together,” says Steele.
“Also thanks to their suppliers who got behind the project including WA Fibreglass Pools, Diamond Glass Pool Fencing, Freo Stone, Tillys Lights, Outdoor Alfresco Kitchens, WG Outdoor Life, Austim, Reece Irrigation Pools and Tony & Sons Nursery.”
The next Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo is the Get Ready for Summer event on September 8 and 9.
