Just over one month away, SPATEX 2023 is set to be the launchpad for the Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA) and British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Swim to the Beat fund-raising campaign. On the Wednesday of the show, it will take place on the Aqua Warehouse Stand E2, with a team of swimmers demonstrating various swim strokes including synchronised and mermaid swimming. Aqua Warehouse is lending its, 12ft Vita XF2 model (featuring the ACS cover) while SPATEX is sponsoring the heating of the water. The campaign invites swim schools, clubs and leisure facilities to participate in fund raising for the month of February – Heart Month. Monies raised will fund vital research into heart and circulatory diseases.
SPATEX 2023 will also host a double seminar programme. The event organisers thank ISPE (Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers), RLSS (Royal Life Saving Society, IoS (Institute of Swimming), STA (Swimming Teachers’ Association, LCA (Legionella Control Association) and PWTAG (Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group). Check out the programme here.
Described as the biggest social event for the pool and hot tub industry, the annual Gala evening is an event not to be missed. On Tuesday, January 31, during SPATEX, the BSPF hosts this “Oscar-esque” evening of dinner, drinks and live entertainment. The main attraction is the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards ceremony hosted by SPATA and BISHTA, bringing the UK’s wet leisure companies together in celebration.

The event organisers also offer their congratulations to the Coventry Building Society Arena and its new owners, the Frasers Group. “We are delighted to hear that all staff are to be retained and that it’s business as usual. We very much look forward to returning to the venue which underwent a £10m upgrade in time for the staging of some of the Commonwealth Games programme this summer. Little wonder then that the Arena was the recent recipient of the prestigious AEO Excellence Awards Venue of the Year Less Than 20,000 sqm. After nine years of exhibiting in Coventry, it’s come to feel like ‘home’ for SPATEX – small enough to have the personal touch but large enough to support excellent communication links and the high standards of a top international venue.”
Registration for the event is free and now open. SPATEX 2023 takes place January 31 to February 2 at the Coventry Building Society Arena, CV6 6GE. It’s located 500 yards off the M6 with 2000 free on-site parking spaces.
