Mars and Ciqada® are heading back to New Orleans.

In September, we were privileged to visit the Crescent City for the Water Environmental Federation’s annual technical exhibition and conference.

This week, we’ll return to Louisiana for The International Pool/Spa/Patio Expo (PSP), scheduled for Nov. 2-4 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Sponsored by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, the Expo bills itself as “a must attend event” for professionals in the the pool, spa and backyard industry.

“With live demonstrations and product displays, powerful education seminars and engaging networking events, the PSP is THE place that pulls together pool, spa and patio industry suppliers manufacturers and service providers with the larger group of retailers, builders, service professionals and landscape architects from around the globe,” the PSP says on its website.

More than 525 manufacturers and suppliers are expected to attend the Expo, which attracts more qualified attendees than any other event in the pool/spa/outdoor living industry. According to the PSP, 65 percent of last year’s attendees reported more than $1 million in yearly sales.

Attendees come to the expo to discover best practices for business growth, but also to learn about new trends and technological advances.

Among those advances is ciqada’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform. Ciqada integrates key IoT components including hardware modules, cloud servers, dashboards, and mobile apps which provide remote control and data monitoring with alert notifications. Ciqada can be found in products such as HVAC equipment, humidors, garage doors, lighting systems, and pool & spa equipment.

Whether you make pumps, heaters, cleaning or maintenance equipment, metering devices, chemical dispensers or any other pool or spa equipment, ciqada’s IoT platform will upgrade your offering through real-time data and alert notifications that manage and protect your devices.

Ciqada is an arm of Mars International, a global contract manufacturer that creates and delivers electrical and mechanical assemblies through an extensive, world-class network.

You can find Ciqada and Mars at Booth 2406 on the expo floor. The expo is part of the larger PSP conference, which is scheduled for Oct. 30 to Nov 4. at the convention center.
