Several Big Exhibitors Return To IPSPE Show In 2012

IPSPE logoWith the Int’l Pool | Spa | Patio Expo still more than half a year away, show organizers are trumpeting the return of the “Big 3” equipment manufacturers — Pentair, Hayward and Zodiac — to this year’s show. 

The 2012 IPSPE will be held Nov. 6-8, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La., with the educational conference, taking place Nov. 3-8. 

These three companies, combined with others that had made their choices in the Early Space Draw, resulted in the show’s most successful Space Draw since 2008, according to Lindsay Roberts, director of the Expo.

“We are overwhelmed by our Space Draw results and the buzz created by the return to New Orleans after a nine-year absence,” said Roberts. “Ninety-five percent of last year’s final show floor has already been assigned, so companies who want to secure space should do so immediately.”

Exhibiting companies who were assigned booth space include Master Spas, Latham Intl., Leisure Concepts, Pleatco, King Technology, BioLab, Bullfrog Spas, Strong Spas, Bull Outdoor Products, Firemagic, Loop-Loc, Caldera Spas/Watkins Mfg., Paramount Pool & Spa Systems, Astral Pool, Century, Nidec Motor Corporation, Doughboy Recreational, Cornelius Pools and Finnleo Sauna.

"Zodiac is pleased to exhibit at the 2012 Int'l Pool | Spa | Patio Expo," said Troy Franzen, Managing Director-Americas for Zodiac Pool Systems. "We look forward to this show and are glad to be back in New Orleans. We're eager to showcase our products, and think pool professionals will be impressed by the many innovative new offerings we have planned for the 2013 season."

Several major hot tub manufacturers will also be returning to the show after absences, including Cal Spas, Marquis, Dynasty and Maax.

Although Space Draw has concluded, companies can still apply for booth space, which will now be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
