MEDIA INFO
Advertising in print and online with SPN will enable you to break into expanding domestic and international markets. Combined packages can be tailored to suit your budget. To learn more about the opportunities available in SPN and on this website read on.

A crucial promotional platform
SPN has been the respected news title for over 50 years. With a unique and loyal audience and distribution 6 times a year, SPN is the first choice publication to use when targeting the UK pool, spa, hot tub and sauna industry.

An established and respected title
We have been publishing since 1959. As the oldest and most respected pool and spa magazine, we are very proud of our reputation. 80% of our readers tell us that they keep each issue for reference at later dates, giving us a long shelf life.

The only official title - re-investing in the industry that we serve
SPN is now set to establish itself even further as the most powerful and successful title in the field.

Since April 2010, SPN has also incorporated (under license) the BSPF's official industry title, Pool & Spa Industry, a move which meant a single official magazine was able to carry the information the industry wants and needs. With a brand new look including newly designed editorial pages and a fresh look for the Buyers Guide - a great low-cost entry point into the market - SPN is ideal for both advertisers and readers alike and by supporting SPN, you are supporting the industry as we are the only trade magazine that re-invests in the industry we serve.

Since late 2007, we have also been producing a digital version of the publication. This virtual magazine is available online and offers all the same features and content available in the traditional magazine. Back issues are also available meaning SPN is available 24/7, wherever you are!

Each issue of SPN features:

• Upbeat and objective features
• Up-to-the minute news and information
• In-depth reporting
• Market changes and innovations
• Independent insight with unbiased coverage
• Specialist technical advice
• Previews and reviews of the best trade shows in the UK and Overseas
• The latest news and views from the BSPF, SPATA, BISTHA, SPATEX and PIP
• And more

To see the latest or any previous edition of SPN, go to the 'archive' page and select a virtual edition to view.

WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS SAY
"I have read and advertised in SPN (Swimming Pool News) since 1976 when I was Sales Manager for Fox Pools International at Twyford. This magazine is good because the people are easy to deal with and since absorbing the Industry side, it has a very wide coverage of news and readership, for the local authority, wet leisure and pool professional markets which we at Swimex, as a major supplier of fixed and telescopic pool enclosures, deals with."
Chris Elliot, Managing Director – Swimex Enclosures
WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS SAY
"Complete Pool Controls have benefited considerably from its advertising in SPN (Swimming Pool News), and its association with Go Publishing. The magazine has a balanced approach to recreational water sectors including swimming pools, hot tubs and commercial operators and the magazine is valued in terms of it broad appeal across these sectors, underlined by the breadth of advertisers. Most recently the addition of dedicated space to the industry's major recognised trade associations – SPATA and BISHTA – have enhanced the authority and appeal of the magazine."
Mark Ramsden, Commercial Director – Complete Pool Controls Ltd
WHAT OUR READERS SAY
"I own and operate 'The Spa Doctor', a small Spa and Pool service company based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire (www.the-spa-doctor.co.uk ). I have
been receiving SPN (Swimming Pool News) for the last couple of years and find the articles informative and comprehensive. The news is up to date and the latest in the industry and occasionally gets the news faster than some of the people in the articles! I am more interested in the hot tub articles and these are heavily featured and on the ball. There is a wide range of advertisements within the publication covering all scope of the industry and I personally have made use of these for contacts. Roll on the next issue!"
Gregg Titmuss, Owner – The Spa Doctor
WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS SAY
"SPN (Swimming Pool News) is PoolSan Direct's first choice for reaching our target market of pool professionals. Online visits and calls both increase noticeably as an ad in spn is published and the quality of enquiries is excellent."
Celina Brown, Managing Director – PoolSan Direct (Leisure) Ltd
WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS SAY
"Talking to customers in a relatively small industry means that you have to target the right niche customer segments effectively for your advertising messages to be worthwhile. Since SPN (Swimming Pool News) is a well-read publication that supplies information and advice directly to other retailers in the pool and spa markets, it presents a good opportunity to build our brand message in the face of those who we want to attract. Being main sponsors of BISHTA and SPATA, advertising in SPN also builds our credibility with those associated in the industry. If good brands are to be noticed by retailers at all, they should be communicating with them in an integrated way. Industry magazines like SPN work as a fundamental part of that approach."
Jo Williams, Marketing Manager – Jacuzzi UK
