SPATA Award Winners 2013
Some of the most innovative swimming pool and spa companies were celebrating in at the start of February following the annual SPATA and BISHTA Awards organised by the British Swimming Pool Federation (BSPF).
Chris Hayes, Managing Director of the BSPF said: “We congratulate all the winners of both the SPATA and BISHTA Awards this year.
There were a significant number of entries and this led to some stiff competition and a difficult job for the judges in determining who should receive an Award! We had 42 entries in nine categories for BISHTA and 123 entries in 21 categories for SPATA this year, including Best Showroom for BISHTA members and both a Retailer Excellence and a Pool of the Year Award for SPATA. It is always pleasing to see the high quality of the entries and this will aid us in showcasing why it is important to work with our members.
“It was also pleasing to see a number of new award recipients, as well as some companies that have won previously. The publicity generated from the Awards will help to promote our industry to the end user and this is vital to continue to generate business and turn customer dreams into reality. The SPATA and BISHTA awards are an important platform to showcase the best available hot tubs, spas and swimming pools and raise the profile of the wet leisure industry and all the luxurious and inspirational products it has available to the public.”
Portrait Pools & Enclosures were the event’s big winners having scooped the two main awards – The Dick Millward Trophy for Pool Contractor of the Year and the Pool of the Year Award.
