Being the longest-running and most well-established industry awards, the annual British Pool & Hot Tub Awards plays a crucial role in promoting the industry, not only to the trade but more importantly, to a wider consumer audience. 

Celebrating the best of construction, design, installation, retail, hire, service and innovation and making waves for the hot tub and spa industry!

Judging comes directly from top industry specialists who work on a regular basis with BISHTA and SPATA. Entries are also anonymously judged, based on the quality of the entry and fairly awarded on a points system. Therefore, winning a British Pool & Hot Tub Award is a mark of excellence from the wet leisure industry. 

These awards have been established to appeal to a wide cross-section of the consumer press. Year on year,  coverage of the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards for award-winners (both locally and nationally) is gaining more and more momentum. The British Pool & Hot Tub Awards are run for the benefit of promoting and celebrating the excellence of BISHTA and SPATA members (nationwide and overseas) endorsing companies who strive for the best, as certified members working to the recognised industry standards and the Association’s Code of Ethics.

Entering the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards opens the door to Europe! Award-winning companies are eligible to be shortlisted for the European Pool & Spa Awards hosted by EUSA (European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations). Winning these awards shines a spotlight on the UK winners raising their profiles in the UK and across Europe.

Every winner receives guaranteed press coverage from their win, with a complimentary press release distributed to their local area, coverage in the industry trade press and promotion across our social media channels and online – it’s a WIN-WIN for your company!

The Industry Gala Evening includes the 2022 British Pool & Hot Tub Awards ceremony hosted by SPATA and BISHTA, and what makes the evening even more special is that it’s an anniversary year for SPATA (60th) and BISHTA (20th), so plans are in place to make it a night to remember, with surprises in store. The black-tie event is jam-packed, and your entry price includes; a champagne reception, a three-course sit-down meal, a chance to network with your industry peers, fun entertainment, a photo booth, mementoes, raffle entry, and concludes with the evening’s resident DJ James Penny keeping guests dancing into the early hours. 

The Industry Gala Evening is open for everyone in the pool and hot tub industry to attend. Whether you are a SPATA or BISHTA member (or neither), and irrespective of whether you are exhibiting or visiting SPATEX, the BSPF warmly invites you to attend the biggest industry social event of the year at this Oscar-Esque style evening on Tuesday 1st February 2022.
