Residential Pools and Spas

SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show opens June 22

June 15, 2022

The long wait is almost over – the first pool and spa trade show in four years!

And the industry’s patience is being rewarded with the biggest pool and spa trade show ever held in Australia. In fact, this will be the biggest dedicated pool and spa trade show ever held in the Asia Pacific region, or in the Southern Hemisphere.

Exhibitors are just as excited as the rest of the industry – so much so they have booked out the entire four halls of the Gold Coast Conference & Exhibition Centre.

That means more exhibitors to talk to, more products to learn about, more great deals to finalise. It also means a lot more excitement than ever before.

SPLASH! Week starts with the three-day Australian Swim Schools National Conference on Tuesday June 21.

The SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show runs on Wednesday June22  and Thursday June 23 – opening with a keynote from Olympic swimmer Brooke Hanson. This immediately follows the Women Attaining Vision, Excellence and Success (WAVES) breakfast.

Throughout the week there is so much to do to improve your knowledge, inventory, network and skillset.

There is the commercial pool technician program, seminars galore, the welcome drinks, great debates, two back of house technical tours and the new innovation section of the show to peruse.

And after all the networking, learning and business-building of the show, you can let your hair down for the first ever SPLASH! After Party on the Thursday night, followed the next morning by the SPLASH! Golf Day.

And of course, the best thing of all is seeing all those friends, clients, suppliers and business partners you’ve only been seeing on a Zoom screen for the past few years.


A word from the Platinum Sponsor

Fluidra is the Platinum Sponsor of SPLASH! 2022, and managing directors Stephen Matysiak says that it has been four long years since the last SPLASH! Show in 2018 and he is truly excited to be participating in, and supporting this year’s event.

“Back in late 2018, Fluidra had just announced the merger of the AstralPool and Zodiac, which was big news for the Australian pool & spa industry. Straight after having dealt with most aspects of the merger, we were all faced with bigger and more difficult challenges with covid and the floods.

“Despite the difficult business environment, Fluidra has managed to continue to grow strongly in all major global regions, including in APAC. Pleasingly, this growth has been achieved both organically, as well as via the various acquisitions made by Fluidra globally, and in Australia. We are particularly excited about the new opportunities in both the Residential and Commercial markets that arise from the acquisition of SR Smith and Sunbather in 2021.

“We are also very pleased to be able to continue to be able to support the industry, via our Platinum Sponsorship of SPASA and SPLASH!, as well as sponsorships of the Australian Swim School Association’s “SAFERwater Warrior Program” and the Royal Life Saving WA’s “Swim to Survive” programs.

“We look forward to welcoming you to the Fluidra stand at this year’s show. When you come visit us at stand 172 this year, you will see how Fluidra has grown since 2018. Our people, our products, our brands, our values and our trade service offering is second to none and we are keen to welcome you and share our knowledge and expertise with you over the two days of SPLASH! and beyond.”
