Pool & Hot Tub Alliance Hosts First Ever GENESIS Symposium

From March 16 through 18, the new symposium will provide education and network connections for pool builders looking to learn more about the industry.

The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) will soon host the first ever GENESIS® Symposium, a new virtual conference for pool builders. The GENESIS® Symposium runs from March 16 through 18 and will include a combination of pre-recorded and live sessions.

This three-day immersive event is bringing together the best of GENESIS® faculty to present information encompassing all of the necessary disciplines for building a structurally sound water vessel. Concurrent programs will be presented in the areas of construction, design, business, and engineering.

“The GENESIS® Symposium is designed to provide students education in business, design, and construction,” says PHTA vice president of education and events Jeanne Mendelson. “Not only will we cover such topics as design, fluid engineering, geotechnical and structural engineering, the educational lineup will arm you with design knowledge and inspiration to help you compete in this competitive market.”

Offering over 25 hours of education with corresponding (CEUs), the GENESIS® Symposium offers a perfect opportunity for pool builders to earn credits while meeting industry experts. For people new to GENESIS®, the Symposium also offers a chance to understand the benefits of becoming a GENESIS® Associate or Society of Watershape Designers (SWD) Registered.

The virtual platform will remain open through April 2, so attendees can return and watch any sessions they may have missed during the event.
