The leaves are falling off the trees and the kids are back in school. Aside from a few optimistic stragglers all of the backyard pools have been closed for the season. What a pool season it was! According to Environment Canada, the months of May, June, July, August and September of 2016 were the hottest on record (since they started recording 80 years ago).
What a terrific year to be in the swimming pool industry.
While things are winding down on the chemical delivery front – fall is still a very busy time for Anchem and the pool industry. This November, the International Pool Spa and Patio show will be taking place in New Orleans. This will be my first time attending this show, and I am excited to see what new opportunities lay ahead for us.
This December will bring a flurry of buying group shows, the last but not least of which is the Canadian Pool and Spa Conference and Expo . This will mark Anchem’s 12th year exhibiting at the show, and we will be featuring our brand new logo. Visit us at booth 412 to check out our new look and meet our newest team members. These new team members bring with them fresh and exciting ideas. If you cannot make it to one of the pool shows, please contact us so that we can meet to discuss how things went in 2016 and to share with you our 2017 programs.
Follow us on Twitter @AnchemSales as we will be live tweeting from each of these events. There may even be a contest or two.
The 2016 pool season was one of our best yet. As we enter pool show season, I am feeling really optimistic about what 2017 will have in store for us all.
