Spatex 2018



SPATEX is returning BIGGER and BETTER than ever. Meeting demand for more exhibitor space, the floorplan has been increased. Never before in its 22-year history has the SPATEX stage been so big. The impressive cast list features big name leading suppliers plus a galaxy of new names, some from as far away as Canada and America, offering even greater international representation. The spectrum of products is equally broad with a record number of exhibiting spa companies – 25 to date! It all adds up to a global showcase brimming with innovations and newness.
