Asia Pacific Convention
Improving trading relations for Australian companies
The Swimming Pool and Spa Alliance (SPASA) was invited to represent Australia at the inaugural Malaysian Swimming Pool Association (MSPA) Convention in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the 21stFebruary 2013.
SPASA President, Peter Moore and SPASA CEO, Spiros Dassakis delivered presentations on the Australian swimming pool industry and the need to build better industry relations between Australian companies and the broader Asia Pacific Region.
“The visit also provided both organisations with an opportunity to discuss and explore synergies between our respective organisations,” says SPASA CEO Spiros Dassakis.
Representatives from Australian national companies also attended with many more making enquiries as to how to become involved with MSPA in the future.
“Being invited to the Malaysian Swimming Pool Convention is a significant first step for the Australian swimming pool and spa industry, in particular since our industry has previously built and maintained relationships mainly with the United States and Europe.”
The new alliance with MSPA seeks to provide greater exposure for the swimming pool industry in Australia such as; improving exporting prospects, information sharing, key contacts, stronger industry influence, promotion of each other’s initiatives as well as reciprocal education and training opportunities.
“The eagerness of MSPA to closely align with SPASA and their welcoming nature made our visit enjoyable and very worthwhile,” Spiros says.
“We look forward to our future dialogue with MSPA and trust that the swimming pool industry in both countries will benefit as a result of our alliance.”
