Last consumer show before lockdown brings in big crowd

March 25th, 2020

SPASA WA’s Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo on March 7 and 8 proved to be a stunning hit. This followed on a week after the highly successful consumer show in Sydney.

Unfortunately, this was the last consumer show for a while, as the restrictions on gatherings came in two weeks later.

However, consumers braved the publicity surrounding Covid-19 and the ongoing challenges facing the Western Australian economy to head out to Claremont Showgrounds.

The garden exhibition was a hit

In fact, SPASA WA CEO Bryce Steele says the first day broke the attendance record to kick the weekend off, with a further increase in attendance on the following day.

“Driving consumer interest and engagement was a real focus for this expo and it certainly didn’t disappoint,” says Steele. “We encouraged consumers to ‘join the backyard revolution’ and head to the expo where they would find everything needed to create the ultimate backyard.

“Exhibitors were kept busy by consumers who were hungry for everything on offer and the feedback we have received to date from exhibitors was that they were blown away by the interest and the quality of the consumer leads received this year.”

Bob Biernat, managing director of the event’s major sponsor, Freedom Pools, congratulated the organisers.

“This expo is right up there as one of the best in Australia, the effort put in by all concerned to ensure its success is outstanding. Freedom Pools is proud to be part of it.”

Currently the next SPASA WA Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo is planned for the Claremont Showground on September 12-13, 2020.
