2020 has presented an extraordinary set of circumstances to us all, forcing changes we never thought we would have to consider. The Awards of Excellence Program is no exception. From concept to reality, the virtual awards were brought to life by teams of people dedicated to supporting not only SPASA and its members, but the industry as a whole.
SPASA would like to sincerely thank the sponsors and judges for their unwavering commitment in this interesting time. In particular, our profound gratitude goes to our partners “Wise Connections” and “AV1” who worked tirelessly to ensure SPASA was able to deliver the spectacular Awards of Excellence Program for 2020.
From the comfort of viewers' home or office, SPASA Australia celebrated the National Awards of Excellence on 19 - 21 August, concluding an exceptional year for the pool and spa community. Kudos to Luke Daly and David Stennett, who took to this years new format like the proverbial ducks to water. Guest appearances were made by Chairman Stefan Ossenberg, SPASA CEO Lindsay McGrath and “roving reporter” COO Spiros Dassakis.
“We are very proud of another successful program that has year-on-year expanded the reach to even more potential pool and spa owners.” Said Lindsay “I can’t speak highly enough of the team at SPASA who have seen COVID as an opportunity to deliver the valuable awards in such a professional and fun manner.“
The industry united in the face of adversary brought on by the pandemic, showcasing the abundance of options available to the marketplace. The expert judging panel was definitely kept busy, as the volume and calibre of nominations this year was incredible! We thank the Australian Institute of Landscape Designers & Managers, Australian Institute of Conveyancers NSW, Fair Work Lawyers and We Are Crew for their efforts.
