Our Week at SPLASH: Pool & Spa Trade Show 2018
The team at Boss Solar recently attended the SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show which was held on 1st and 2nd of August at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC). The biannual event was a huge success, with many regarding it as the biggest event of the shows history.
Since 1998 SPLASH! has become the largest pool and spa trade show in the southern hemisphere. The show attracts over 2,000 visitors from more than 27 countries and has become a must-attend event for manufacturers, pool builders, retailers and contractors. A huge attraction of the show was the appearance of Billy Slater from the Melbourne Storm, who helped raise over $2.5k in donations towards the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
The four day event offers guests an opportunity to attend a range of conference and training sessions, networking opportunities and to see over 120 exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations and trends in the industry.
The team at Boss was inundated with interest from clients seeking new swimming pool heating products from all over Australia. Boss Solar was one of the only exhibitors to showcase a new Australian made innovation, Rhino Solar. Designed and manufactured in Melbourne, this innovative rigid solar pool heating system is ideal for both domestic and commercial solar pool heating systems.
The show offered a perfect opportunity for the team to showcase Rhinos modular design. Unlike competing panels which can be large and bulky, Rhino Black is supplied as a modular, ‘knock-down’ kit containing all of the parts necessary to assemble a complete panel. The team was able to demonstrate how the panels are easily packaged, warehoused, transported and assembled. The show was a huge success, with the team already planning to attend the next show in 2020.
In the meantime, the team at Boss will also be exhibiting at this year’s Piscine Global Europe 2018 Swimming Pool & Wellness Event. Exhibiting on stand #5C92 the event will be held from the 13th to the 16th of November at the Eurexpo in Lyon (France). Piscine Global Europe is not only the largest but also the most important international professional exhibition for the swimming pool and wellness sector.
The Boss Solar team participated in the 2016 show, which saw 17,876 visitors, 100 journalists and 596 exhibitors. Widely considered to be an event that is not to be missed, Piscine Global will offer a perfect opportunity for Boss to meet new clients and establish new distribution partners.
Let us know if you will be attending the show. We would love to arrange a time to meet, catch up and buy you a drink!
