The largest exposition of its kind in North America, the 2014 event attracted 11,103 total attendees and 552 exhibiting manufacturers spanning over 148,000 of exhibit space.

Pre-registration for conference sessions and events is required.
The only overlap between exhibits and education will be the several free seminars on the show floor including the Hayward School of Business, Genesis Lifestyle Program, Commercial Education and Splash Talks. Descriptions for each program are available at poolspapatio.com. Registration for show floor education is highly recommended but not required and seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
