What Is It?
The first Swimming Pool Symposium was held in 1975. It was a one-day affair with a handful of classes and no exhibits. The pool technicians’ hunger for knowledge was evident immediately, as all classes were filled to capacity.
The symposium continued for three years, growing in size and popularity each year. Tremendous interest and support – from service people and manufacturers alike – led organizers to the next logical step : a true trade show with exhibitors as well as an extended seminar package. Thus, in 1979, the Annual Western Pool & Spa Show was born.
