Being able to design or build pools is a major benefit when quoting for ambitious new projects. To highlight this skill set increasingly in demand, you need to position it in a comparative context. Winning a prize in the Pool Design Awards contest proves your expertise as a pool and spa supplier and your ability to integrate it into its surroundings.

“Proposing a pool design service is no longer enough to sell your skills. Sporting pools and pools dedicated to relaxation are places for sharing emotions. Designers must visualize indoor spaces and include accessories like hydro massage jets and the outdoor surroundings”

— Studio Apostoli, winner of the 2020 Pool Design Awards in the “Most beautiful sport and leisure pool” category.
