Professionals across the pool, spa, patio, decking, and outdoor living industries engaged in three days of industry connection, education, networking, and competition with the industry’s leading brands and experts.
The 2022 International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo™, co-located with Deck Expo (PSP/Deck Expo) concluded its 65th annual event. The excitement from the show floor was palpable with an over 40% increase in professionals in attendance from last year. The event, put on by Informa Markets, the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA), and the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA®), was November 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With over 10,000 registered professionals, the event connected notable and emergent brands with thousands of buyers, while providing ample networking opportunities and a full range of education led by renowned industry experts.
Attendees covering the entire spectrum of the industry explored 146,680 square feet of exhibit space during the three-day event. More than 460 vendors displayed the latest products, services, and technology for the pool, spa, patio, outdoor living, and decking industries, including prominent suppliers, such as Jacuzzi Hot Tubs, Deckorators, and Raypak, Inc.
“PSP/Deck Expo is the industry’s leading marketplace for driving growth and enabling collaboration,” said Kris Osterbusch, Show Director. “Every year, suppliers and attendees meet at this event to make new deals, partnerships, and re-establish connections. The expo floor was buzzing; buyers explored innovative products and technologies, and conference rooms were packed as professionals sought solutions to today’s challenges,” she continued.
PSP/Deck Expo 2022 brought new sessions and education to enhance the attendee experience, in addition to restoring special events from previous years. The Keynote: CEO Panel featured leaders from five key manufacturers; they gave their perspective on current challenges and future outlook to a standing-room only space.
“The Keynote: CEO Panel was a slam dunk,” said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, President & CEO of PHTA. “The speakers entertained the crowd and gave a phenomenal perspective on the industry.”
Besides the expo hall and more than 100 education opportunities during the week, additional event highlights included:
“PSP/Deck Expo is a can’t-miss event for us each year as an exhibitor,” said Britt Godfrey of Lyon Financial, who was a vendor. “The quality of the venues, show production and attendees is unmatched. This show allows us to display our brand to the industry’s key decision makers, year after year, with resounding results.”
In the Expo Hall, one attendee favorite was the Product Showcase. Vendors submitted their new and noteworthy technologies as part of a contest for attendee voting. With over 40 products submitted, the winners were:
Like the 2022 event, PSP/Deck Expo 2023 will take place in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, from November 10-15, 2023. However, the Expo portion of the event will shift to a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday format.
“The outlook for the industry is extremely positive. The industry has faced recent challenges head on, and we are emerging stronger than ever.” said Vincent Carrubba, president of NADRA. “These two industries – at this show – these are a natural fit. It’s wonderful to see the interaction and the collaboration happening.”

All the Sustainability Motors are compact and lightweight for easier installation, and their quiet performance makes them more comfortable for consumers. Noise pollution is a problem with pump motors in general, whether for residential pools or other commercial uses. In addition, the new motors’ variable speed capabilities optimize pump motor efficiency, reduce energy costs, and allow manufacturers to easily add new features and functions.
“Our new energy-efficient electric pump motors have less impact on the environment and are powerful enough not only for pools and spas, but many other applications within industrial markets,” said Nick Grewal, CEO, president and founder of ePropelled. “Variable speed pump motors are more efficient, which creates more sustainable products, systems and operations and can reduce costs. This is a win-win for manufacturers and consumers alike.”

Target markets include HVAC, pool, spa, water and wastewater, and other large industrial applications. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electric motors and systems account for about 40% of electricity consumption globally.
