Hosted by BISHTA and SPATA

The annual British Pool & Hot Tub Awards hosted by BISHTA and SPATA as part of the Industry Gala Evening is a vital way to provide much-needed publicity and good news stories. With this in mind, 2021 is a big year for the trade associations, as SPATA celebrates its 60th anniversary, and BISHTA celebrates its 20th anniversary. SPATEX itself will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. Plans have started to be set in place for a celebration to remember at the Industry Gala Awards evening during SPATEX 2021. Providing some great events to look forward to and the awards create a fantastic opportunity to showcase the best examples of the industry in construction, design, installation, retail, service and innovation.

Promoting the UK Pool & Hot Tub industry

Online entry to the 2021 British Pool & Hot Tub Awards opens this month, and this is your chance to celebrate your successes and grow your company profile. There is an increased demand for water leisure products currently, but even when business is good, and turnover is healthy, you should never stop marketing your business, and this is where the strength of the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards can help showcase your company and give it the spotlight it deserves.

Judging comes directly from top industry specialists who regularly work with BISHTA and SPATA. Entries are also anonymously judged, based on the quality of the entry and fairly awarded using a points system. Therefore, winning a British Pool & Hot Tub Award is a mark of excellence from the water leisure industry.

Gala evening at SPATEX 2021

The award ceremony takes place annually at the Industry Gala Evening. The evening is always scheduled for the first night at SPATEX (www.spatex), at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.  The next event is to be held on Tuesday, 2nd February 2021. Seats for the evening are open to the whole industry; you do not need to be a BISHTA or SPATA member to attend the Industry Gala Evening. 

Entering the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards also opens the door to Europe! As award-winning companies are eligible to be shortlisted for the European Pool & Spa Awards hosted by EUSA (European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations).
