Interpoint managing director Simon Cooper says that the 2016 edition of the SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show really came of age with the move to the large Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

“The venue provided opportunities for exhibitors to showcase the best of the best in terms of pool products and services,” he says. “The SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show has now cemented itself as the leading industry trade show in the Australasian market and placed itself for the first time on the international stage.”

Cooper says he received comments from international attendees that the expo was comparable with those held in Europe and the USA.

“With the largest ever attendance of exhibitors and visitors, the broadest ever provision of education and seminars and a popular new partnership established with the Australian Swim Schools Association who ran a successful International Swim Disability Conference – the stage is set for the 10th anniversary in 2018 to push The SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show into one of the top five pool and spa trade shows in the world.”

The Poolrite welcome drinks was a busy, exciting networking event.
