Having a unified voice for the wet leisure industry allows better dialogue with government and other relevant organisations that have an impact on our industry. It is then possible to ensure an effective communication system is in place to update the industry on upcoming issues.
The BSPF is the sole shareholder of both SPATEX (the annual trade exhibition) and also of PIP (the pool and spa industry promotions group).
PIP is responsible for promoting the swimming pool and hot tub industry, both within the trade and more importantly to the end user/consumer.
PIP has a Committee that is responsible for coordinating the work programme and it is also responsible for overseeing a Magazine licence, working in partnership with Aqua Publishing. The licence enables the provision of information to the trade via SPN and to the consumers via What Pool & Hot Tub. Regular articles and features are collated by PIP and are included in both publications. SPN is produced six times per year and What Pool & Hot Tub is an annual publication.
