AQUA Live Spring Training, powered by PHTA Midwest Chapter

AQUA Live Spring Training, powered by PHTA Midwest Chapter, is happening alongside PHTA and GENESIS training from March 11-15. Plan on staying the whole week as AQUA and PHTA present education (certification training in CHTT, CMS, CPO and CST, product-specific training, and professional development education) and two amazing receptions. 

Tuesday evening will see a reception at the hotel from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Marquis Tent, with exhibitors, drinks and hors d'oeuvres. At 7 p.m., the WAVE crowd will depart for Pinstripes, with indoor bowling and bocce! (Insider tip: If you’re 40 and under, be sure to add this reception to your registration!)

Wednesday evening will see a kick-ass concert by Lara Bell, a legendary Chicago artist, sponsored by Heritage Pool Supply Group, the same group that brought you Lynyrd Skynyrd and Cheap Trick at Atlantic City. This will be a night to remember as hundreds of pool pros come together to celebrate the end of winter and the start of the opening season with a party.
