Pool Industry Expo XXX

Show time! Sept. 29- Oct . 1, Monterey, California

 

It may not be the biggest venue — and it isn’t the easiest place to get to — but it sure is nice to have an excuse to spend a few days in Monterey, and the 30th Annual Pool Industry Expo is all the reason we need.

Located on California’s rugged central coast, the small town offers breathtaking seascapes, sandy white beaches, and panoramic sunsets.    

It is home to Cannery Row, immortalized by the great John Steinbeck.  Once the center of the sardine packing industry, today its factories have been converted into quaint gift shops, seafood restaurants, coffee shops and bars. 

It is where you find some of the finest seafood in the country and world class wines.  

And it happens to be where the pool and spa industry goes to unwind at the close of the traditional swim season.

Monterey offers plenty, all on its own, but the Pool Industry Expo also never fails to deliver. Every year, the show assembles the finest manufacturers, distributors, builder and service technicians. They come from not just Northern California, but from all over the world.  

Service technicians arrive in droves to experience the full range of classes, including building-related problems, equipment repair, water chemistry, electricity and business practices. There are opportunities to learn just about anything relevant to the pool and spa industry. It’s why the show has earned the tag line: the education vacation.

Classroom training is offered Thursday, 1-5 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

As usual, the show will feature exhibits from leading manufacturers and suppliers, providing service professionals with an opportunity to talk shop with experts in the field and learn about the latest products.  And seasoned show-goers know that manufacturer-sponsored giveaways are worth a trip or two around the exhibit hall. 

Exhibit hours are Thursday, 5-8 p.m.; Friday, 2-6 p.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In this special issue of Service Industry News, we’ve assembled the 2016 seminar guide, complete with course descriptions. The guide begins on page 4. Look for the full exhibitor guide, providing attendees with a look at 2016’s latest products, on page 14.
