The Florida Show Celebrates 50 Years


The Everything Under the Sun Expo — scheduled for March 4-5, 2022 in Orlando, Fla. — is excited to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The event released the following press release, which details more information on the show: 

This cornerstone event for the pool industry has seen various names and branding over the years, such as the Florida Pool & Spa Show and the Orlando Pool & Spa Show, but has always held the same great energy and audience. The Florida Swimming Pool Association hasn’t missed a year organizing this event since its inception in 1972 as part of the mission of advancing the Florida swimming pool industry.

The Expo is taking place in West Hall E of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). Specialty education begins as early as March 2, and exhibit hall hours are March 4-5. The show is not open to the general public.

Education courses tally 157 hours of learning through 65 sessions. Specialty courses begin March 2 and include two GENESIS two-day course options, the Florida Public Pool Specialist certification, and the LP Gas Master Qualifier endorsed program. Continuing education daily offerings begin Thursday, March 3, and continue through Saturday, March 5. Learning Labs for hands-on, product-specific training are held within the exhibit hall during hall hours.

The social activities begin Thursday, March 3, with the Awards and Welcome Reception at 6:30 p.m. in the Sunburst Room of the OCCC. All attendees and exhibitors are invited to attend as the 50 years are celebrated in gold and black; show us how you look in gold! Friday, March 4 you don’t want to miss an evening of food, drinks (open bar) and entertainment at the Friday Night Party. This is a private industry party from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Howl at the Moon and is within walking distance of the show hotels. Indoor and covered outdoor space and the famous dueling pianos make this the place for networking and fun. Tickets can be purchased during registration or at the FSPA booth for $35 or are $45 at the door.

The official host hotels are the Rosen Plaza, Hyatt Regency and the Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando. All are within walking distance of the exhibit hall and are offering special rates for the group.
