For 32 years, the voice of the pool and spa service professional.

Pool Industry Expo XXXIII

Pool Industry Expo XXXIII

Monterey, California is the place to be on September 19 to 21, 2019. 

The 32nd annual Pool Industry Expo is where the pool and spa industry goes to unwind at the close of the traditional swim season for the yearly educational vacation.

Located on California’s rugged central coast, the small town offers astounding seascapes, panoramic sunsets and easy photo opportunities of sea otters.  

It’s a cyclist’s paradise, offering the scenic 17- Mile Drive with amazing views of The Lone Cypress Tree, Spanish Bay and the Del Monte Forest. 

For California history buffs, it is home to Cannery Row, once the center of the sardine packing industry. Today, those factories have been converted into quaint gift shops, seafood restaurants, ice cream parlors and coffee shops.     

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

Monterey has it all, but the Pool Industry Expo is why we come. This show assembles the finest manufacturers, distributors, builders and service technicians. They come from not just Northern California, but from all over the world.  

Expect a full range of classes, including equipment repair, water chemistry, electricity, automation control and business

There are opportunities to learn just about anything relevant to the pool and spa industry.

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

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. 

Seasoned show-goers know that manufacturer sponsored give-aways are worth a trip or two around the exhibit hall. 

Exhibit hours are Thursday, 5-8 p.m.; Friday, 2-6:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In this special issue of Service Industry News, we’ve assembled the 2019 seminar guide on page 19. Look for the exhibitor guide — with a look at 2019’s latest products — on page 9.
