The organisers of September’s Perth Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo at Claremont Showgrounds say the event exceeded expectations and built on recent successful expos.
Although facing a challenging economic climate in Western Australia, plenty of buyers turned out with more than 34 per cent looking for pools, 29 per cent for outdoor living products, 25 per cent for landscaping and 12 per cent for spas.
SPASA WA CEO Bryce Steele says they were delighted with the overall turnout for the event and that the initial feedback from the exhibitors was that they are happy with the generated leads and anticipated results.
“It was pleasing to see so many people wanting to invest in their own swimming pool, as pool ownership is part of our DNA in the West,” he says. “Perth is where 19 per cent of all homes have a backyard pool, this exceeds the national average of 13 per cent. The expo looked amazing, the exhibitors put a lot of work into their displays to ensure this was the best looking expo yet. Thank you to our major sponsor Riverina Pools and all of our amazing exhibitors who supported this expo.”
The next SPASA WA Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo will take place at the Claremont Showground from 7-8 March 2020.
