A Warm Welcome from SPATEX Organiser, Michele Bridle to the UK’s Number One Water Leisure Exhibition, SPATEX 2016, at the Ricoh Arena!

Michele BRIDLE


“Yes, after a year of planning, the milestone 20th anniversary SPATEX 2016 is here! And what a Show we’ve lined up for you! We’ve come a long way in our 20-year history and we would like all of our many and much-valued exhibitors and visitors, national and international, to join us in celebrating our journey and making us the UK’s key event in the calendar.
“Not that we are resting on our laurels. Far from it, the Exhibition is continually evolving and growing in stature year-on-year and we are looking forward to even greater horizons in the future.
 “I look forward to meeting you at the Show. New for this year, we have a dedicated SPATEX Welcome Desk at the entrance of the Jaguar Exhibition Hall. If you have any queries, whether it’s a technical enquiry and need to be pointed in the right direction or wish to talk to the SPATEX team, please do pay us a visit. We can also help should you need help regarding hotel and restaurant bookings.


Come celebrate with us!
