In a year that some may otherwise care to forget, the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Victoria (SPASAVIC) pivoted to put on an unprecedented world-class virtual industry event that tantalised the senses and showcased the very best of what the swimming pool and spa industry has on offer.
SPASAVIC’s annual Awards of Excellence Gala is traditionally the largest industry event of its kind in Australia and the most anticipated industry event on the Victorian calendar. This year, the dazzling array of spectacular swimming pools and spas was projected into living rooms, brilliantly brought to life by virtual event studio ‘Scene Change’, accompanied by Sam Kekovich as Master of ceremonies. Professional caterers Tommy Collins were delighted to provide viewers with delectable ‘at home’ dining experiences delivered to the door. These gastronomic delights allowed a true feast for the senses. With hundreds of members of the pool and spa industry riveted to their screens, SPASAVIC members again proved that they are among the very best in the world in terms of standard and innovation in their work.
This virtual festival of pools and spas once again demonstrated to the world the undeniable skill and capability of SPASAVIC members to create, innovate and deliver on the great Australian dream of backyard pool and spa ownership.
CEO of SPASAVIC, Chris Samartzis says, "Our world class Master pool and spa builders have once again taken the humble backyard swimming pool and spa to a new level. Not only is the dream of owning your own backyard oasis more affordable than ever, but these artistic creations from our members embrace a level of bespoke mastery construction that adds enormous value to homes and lifestyle living. Now - more than ever - the vibe of 'stay-cation' will ensure that our members are highly sought after. No other group of pool and spa builders can deliver an artisan project like a SPASAVIC member.”
With a total of 39 different award categories and 77 Gold and Highly Commended wins awarded, as well as the three major prestigious and highly-coveted awards - Product of the Year, Spa of the Year and Remco Pool of the Year – a fantastic event was enjoyed by all.
