The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) is honoring the best in swimming pool, spa, hot tub and water feature design with the 45th annual International Awards of Excellence (AOE).
Recipients were officially revealed in the October issue of AQUA Magazine and will be honored during two events at the 2015 International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo. Honorees will be presented their plaques during the Chairman’s Reception on Monday, Nov. 9 and their installations will be featured on two-story video screens at the Light Night Club during the Expo Welcome Party.
All 70 award-winning installations are eligible for the Fan Favorite Award, which is new this year. Each installation can be viewed at APSP.org/fanfavorite where anyone can vote, and share their favorite installation. Voting begins today and runs through 5 p.m. PST on Nov. 10. The winner of the fan voting will be announced during the Expo Welcome Party.
“These award winning installations are a shining example of what our members can do in consumer backyards across the world,” said APSP President and CEO Rich Gottwald. “The Awards of Excellence program gives our members an opportunity to separate themselves from their competitors as well as earn recognition from the pool, spa and hot tub industry. This year, we are happy to invite consumer voting and social media sharing of our winners through our Fan Favorite Award.”
The APSP International Awards of Excellence program recognizes and rewards installations of pools, spas, hot tubs, and water features that showcase the most beautiful and creative work in the industry. Hundreds of entries are submitted each year, representing member firms across the United States and around the world.
