You probably noticed something extra on the front of the magazine this issue. We’ve launched a huge renewal campaign for SpaRetailer — and I would greatly appreciate your participation.
You will still get your copy mailed for free, but having your most updated information helps us ensure we’re getting SpaRetailer into the hands of the people who want and need it most. Those details also help us better understand our audience and their needs — which helps us determine what to write about, what programs to launch and helps our advertisers know who they are reaching. It will only take a couple of minutes on your phone, which is worth it to make sure you keep getting SpaRetailer.
Also, if you’ve looked at the list of exhibitors for the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo, you might be pleasantly surprised to see how many hot tub manufacturers are exhibiting this year. After a long hiatus, many OEMs are showing up in Las Vegas — and I hope you will, too! Come visit us at booth #4340.
And, of course, don’t miss our 2023 Retail Stars. One of my favorite and most popular features of the year, this story highlights retailers who took the year by the horns.
Finally, we’ve got something else new in the works. In partnership with Leslie Cunningham, we’re launching a special group for the women of the hot tub industry. Leslie has worked with some of the top hot tub retailers in the country and has developed training specifically targeted to women leaders. If you or a woman in your organization could benefit from this, find more information here.
