Repeating the success of last year, the Show is hosting two seminar arenas offering free industry training on vital current topics on all three days of the Show.  Keith Moody of La Paloma Contracts, Spain says: “Each year I come over from Spain to attend SPATEX, not just for the exhibition and display of new products but also for the seminars and workshops. Living and working as I do in Spain, it is important to keep up to date with all the Industry training, education and Standards and SPATEX is an unparalleled free source. The knowledge that I glean is worth the cost of the trip over!” Click to discover the Seminars Sessions.
