Residential Pools and Spas

Best and biggest ever SPLASH! expo an outstanding success

June 29, 2022

After a wait of four years, the 2022 SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show proved to be everything the industry needed – and more!

Exhibitors were delighted with the bustling crowd of excited visitors, and the visitors commented on the size of the show (with well over 100 exhibitors), and the professional standard of the exhibition stands. Many commented that the show was much more like a European or American show in style and presentation, ushering in a new era in trade shows for the pool and spa industry in the region.

The visitors and exhibitors alike were genuinely excited to all get together again after such a prolonged absence.

SPASA Australia CEO Lindsay McGrath congratulated the SPLASH! 2022 team in delivering an event of international quality.

“Exhibitors and attendees commented on the stands’ quality, seminars, and networking,” he says.

“The attendee list includes the who’s who of decision-makers across the Asia Pacific region with an excellent contingent of internationals. There was an incredible buzz of professionals getting together and planning for the future. This expo has set a new standard for events in the Australasian pool and spa industry, and I look forward to the next show.”

The SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show was opened by Olympic champion Brooke Hanson after the Women Attaining Vision Excellence and Success (WAVES) networking breakfast organised for women who are and who aspire to be leaders in the pool and spa industry.

The day was filled with seminars from industry experts, debate sessions on the critical issues faced by the industry, and concluded with networking drinks.

The second day started slow but picked up the pace with the flow of visitors engaged by the exhibitors, seminars and talk sessions. The highlight of the second day was the SPLASH! Afterparty – an exciting night of entertainment including the iconic Baker Boys band. The golf day followed on the Friday.

The ASSA Conference was also held in conjunction with SPLASH!

SPLASH! magazine will have a comprehensive review in the upcoming print edition.
