If you weren’t at the Atlantic City Pool & Spa Show, you missed 414 exhibitors and tens of thousands of eager attendees taking classes and scoping out the latest products the pool and spa industry has to offer. 

Luckily, though, the AQUA editors were at the show, armed with cameras to capture the excitement (or most of it, anyway.) To get a glimpse of the 2014 show, check out the video above.  

A "Record-Breaking Show" 

In addition to strong attendance, dipping just below last year's numbers due to poor weather, show organizers report a record-breaking year for education. The 2014 show features more than 75 seminars, including 50 technical seminars and more than 25 business classes. Education attendance grew by 15 percent this year.

The AC Show also marked a departure from past years with the announcement of a new name: The Pool & Spa Show. 

 “What has made this show a success is that it is made by pool and spa people for pool and spa people. It has really given us an edge each year and it’s because of this we’ve developed a reputation not just in the Northeast, but around the country and beyond, for being the industry’s must-attend show,” says Northeast Spa & Pool Association Vice President and 2014 Show Chair John Migliaccio. “We are excited to introduce the new show name which truly reflects who we are and where the show is headed in the future.” 

AQUA chatted with Show Director Trish McCormick and Marketing Director Kelly McKelvey about the change and what it means for the future — click here to take a look.

“Now that the secret is out, the fun part can begin,” McCormick says. “Get ready to see our show look transform this year as we embrace our new name and brand as we focus on 2015 and beyond.”
