Pool Magazine

Pool construction grew by 30% year over year. As a result of all the consumer interest, there is suddenly an incredible demand for pool contractors. Consequently, more and more people are looking to start a career in the pool industry. However, this means obtaining the proper education, networking, and finding mentors that can help in that endeavor.

Trade exhibitions are an excellent opportunity for not only staying up to date on the latest developments in the pool and outdoor living industries, but networking with experts. The recent pandemic put a halt to many of the pool trade shows and industry events over the past 2 years. The International Pool & Spa Expo last November, marked the beginning of a return to in-person event gatherings.

Pool experts visit regional and national conferences to become acquainted with the most recent advancements and to take advantage of on-site educational seminars. One of the best methods to decide which event to attend is to become acquainted with the many pool industry conferences and trade exhibitions that will be held this year.

This list of pool industry trade events will help you understand which events will take place throughout the rest of 2022 and into the beginning of 2023. Many of these events actually provide pool association members a discount for attending. More information regarding lodging, event itinerary, and exhibitor information can be found by visiting the respective show's website.
