That was how the UK Pool and Spa Awards was described by one lucky winner at The Vox Resorts in Birmingham last week. It was also a night to remember for Biochemica Leisure as we sponsored the Holiday Park Pool of the Year award for the first time. Camila Ruddy presented the award to Hafan y Mor, who we all agreed were deserved winners.
The UK Pool and Spa Awards, a top night in the diary for many in the leisure industry, is a competition open to all companies involved in the delivery or water leisure with the aim of raising the profile for individual pool and spa businesses and the industry as a whole. Categories cover wholesalers, retailers, leisure operators across residential and commercial swimming pools, hot tub and swim spas, wellness and other accessories.
The evening started with networking drinks, followed by a superb buffet dinner and desert. Then came the main event, the awards ceremony. The special guest for the night was former Apprentice winner Michelle Dewberry, who gave a motivational speech to the crowd, discussing her time on the BBC programme, working for Lord Sugar and her run for MP. She then stopped for photographs with all the award winners. The awards were then underway with many happy winners in categories such as Hotel Pool of the Year, Overseas Project of the Year and Supplier of the Year.
The night was a huge success and we were proud to be part of it. We hope to be back again next year sponsoring yet another fantastic award.
