October 2014 saw the Jacuzzi Europe and Asia Awards ceremony which was held in the astonishing Venice, Italy. Retailers gathered from across the globe to attend the awards ceremony to see what is going on in the water leisure industry and to catch up with fellow retailers.
As one of Jacuzzi’s biggest UK retailers, we were invited to attend the awards ceremony following our nomination for Top Sales Performance in Asia and Europe. Paul and Kevin were delighted to have Outdoor Living’s hard work acknowledged at the awards and having already achieved Jacuzzi Retailer of the Year for the last four years, we proudly added Top Sales Performance in Asia and Europe 2014 to our achievements.
The day was hectic but hugely enjoyable. We were thrown into many different workshops and web seminars which helped to excel each and every retailer’s business.
This was also followed by a talk from the all-inspiring Alberto Apostoli, the designer of the Sasha range - who is “considered one of the world’s best spa designers and trendsetters in the field of wellness”. Over the years, he has developed experience in various project areas at multiple different scales: ‘hotels, shops, offices, residences, products, mixed use buildings and urban planning.’
Paul and Kevin also had the opportunity for a cheeky trip to a vineyard where, as you’d expect, they were greeted with the finest wines and breath-taking scenery in the stunning city of Venice.
Unmatched by any other UK retailer in the history of the awards, we proudly became the first retailer in the UK to receive the Top Sales Performance in Asia and Europe 2014 award. Winning this award also highlighted the phenomenal success the UK are having in general in the water leisure industry.
At Outdoor Living we have worked extremely hard over the years to bring the highest quality to every customer. Having opened our second showroom in Leeds, we have strived to make the hot tub experience available for a wide range of customers across the region. The Leeds showroom was opened in 2012 and quickly became the Flagship Showroom for Jacuzzi® UK in 2013.
