August 7, 2013

The Swimming Pool and Spa Alliance's 2013 SPASA Convention is gearing up to be a hugely successful event with the expo now 100% full.

Announcing the achievement, Swimming Pool and Spa Alliance (SPASA) Chief Executive Spiros Dassakis explained "we have received overwhelming support from around Australia, with a record number of pre-registrations from every state.

"This is a major industry event, and the calibre of exhibitors highlights the importance and value of holding an event such as this.

"Not only does it help promote our industry at a time when the economy is subdued, it also provides participants with the opportunity to network, share ideas and grow their businesses."

The 2013 SPASA Convention is being held at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre (SOPAC) on Thursday 15th August.

In addition to the exhibition, Dassakis adds "we also have representation from the ACCC and the Attorney General's Department, which will enable convention delegates the chance to find out about regulations and laws which impact our industry.

"This convention provides industry members and relevant trades and organisations the chance to learn about the latest products and technologies, trends and developments, not to mention up-skill with a range of seminars and workshops."

"Attendees to the SPASA Convention also have the chance to win a Las Vegas Holiday Package."

The Las Vegas holiday package includes two return economy class flights to Las Vegas and five nights' accommodation and Dassakis is encouraging all attendees to enter the competition, concluding "we invite industry members and other relevant trades and organisations to attend the convention and all attendees will go in the draw to win a Las Vegas holiday package."
