The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA) and the Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association (SPATA) are the relevant trade associations upholding standards within the industry.
The silver award was given to Origin Leisure in the Residential Indoor Pools up to £100,000 category sponsored by Fi-Clor. Origin Leisure also won a bronze award in the Residential Outdoor Pools £80,000 and over category sponsored by Pollet Pool Group.
Andy Kershaw from Origin Leisure commented “It is a great acknowledgement for us to be recognised by SPATA at this year’s British Pool & Hot Tub awards. The Origin Leisure team are overjoyed on receiving these awards as recognition from our industry peers of our hard work and dedication to strive for the highest standards .”
The awards event brings together BISHTA and SPATA to highlight the achievements of the wet leisure industry, by showcasing the best examples of design, construction, installation and innovation.
Chris Hayes, Managing Director of both BISHTA and SPATA, says “We congratulate all the winners of the BISHTA and SPATA Awards this year. BISHTA represents over 100 specialist hot tub companies across the British Isles and SPATA represents in excess of 170 companies. As we set our standards high for both trade associations, the award winners keep coming up with even more fabulous entries! The outstanding quality of submissions, this year has certainly created some stiff competition, making it a difficult job for the judges in determining who should receive what level of Award! The high quality of the entries will aid us in showcasing what our members can do for their customers and why it is so important to choose a BISHTA or SPATA member to turn your dreams into reality”.
The awards evening is held alongside SPATEX, the Pool and Spa Show, an event which sees companies from across the UK and overseas, gather to exhibit their finest products and services, along with promoting themselves and networking with colleagues. SPATEX is the UK’s largest and longest running dedicated swimming pool and spa exhibition, holding its 19th annual trade show at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 1st to 3rd February.
