Presenting in.touch 2 at the ACPQ's Are you connected? conference.

 

March 23rd, in Brossard, QC, Mathieu talked in.touch 2 at the Are you connected? conference of l’Association des commerçants de piscines du Québec. During his presentation in front of 40 members, Mathieu demonstrated that the in.touch 2 transmitters and iOS or Android applications with push notifications make it very easy to control and program functions and features of a spa from a smartphone or a tablet, even when a user is away from home.

Gecko Alliance’s in.touch 2 wireless remote control for spas and hot tubs features the simplest of setups, a strong and long range signal and state-of-the-art apps.

After three intensive months, WPI's Clinique du Spa in Lyon closed its door on March 17th and the success was there from the beginning! 417 professionals assisted to the various training sessions and the World Pool Innovation's team had positive reviews from them.

It wasn't possible for you to be there?  No worry!  Other seminars are scheduled in May and WPI will start again in October for a few months to present to you the new releases we are working on now.

Our seminar goes Canadian West Coast

 

A responsive crowd in Nanaimo, BC, on March 14th, kept Mathieu on top of his game with interactive sessions about our Y series control systems, in.touch 2, in.clear, pumps, troubleshooting and other accessories.  All the possible configurations and programming were covered for them.

Presented by Aqua Spa & Pool Supply, this was our first stop out of two on the West Coast for this March.

The Hydropool World Conference

The best place to escape from the Quebec’s snow?  Dominican Republic!  David McClure and Louis-Philippe Legaré are at the Hydropool World Conference to show to registered dealers and technicians our new products, to sponsor the event and, of course, enjoy the scenery of Punta Cana.

They will come back from their feet in the sand to their feet in the snow!

 

WPI's « Clinique du Spa » in Lyon

 

For the next three months, about 200 retailers will come over the new WPI Training Center,   « La Clinique du Spa » (Spa clinic) in Lyon, France.  Pascal Mathys, our European Specialist in Customer Support, began the formations a few days ago.  Dynasty and Trevi's dealers and technicians, who will come by « La Clinique du Spa », will learn more about our in.k1000, in.xm, in.therm, in.stream 2, in.p4, in.xe and in.k800.

Welcome in our world and hope to meet you there!

Technical Seminar Tour makes a stop in Calgary!

 
 
 

April 15, Gecko’s technical seminar tour made a stop in Calgary for a full day of training presented by Aqua Spa Pak.

This stop kept Mathieu on top of his game with a lengthy presentation focusing on the Y series of control systems, covering all the possible configurations and the programming, in front of very knowledgeable and experienced attendees that asked all the right questions.

This date coincided with a game day of the ongoing NHL series. To quote Mathieu: "At the end of the day, we all were winners! I mean, the session was great, the audience was outstanding and both the Habs and the Flames won!"

ACPQ Training day

March 18, Mathieu Robitaille made a stop at Brossard’s Dix30 Alt hotel to deliver a 2-hour technical seminar sponsored by ACPQ. The main purpose of his presentation was to share and discuss troubleshooting techniques on the most common problems found in electronic controls for spas and hot tubs.

Mathieu commented that it was “quite liberating” to be able to do the presentation in his mother tongue even if, in french, a “pressure switch” remains a “pressure switch”.

Thanks to the ACPQ team for the invitation and, of course, to the members who attended Mathieu’s seminars.

 Baystate Opportunity Day, Uncastville, CT


Feb 10th 2015, Mathieu, from Gecko Depot, was in Connecticut for the Baystate Opportunity Day at the Mohegan Sun Casino. Despite the snow storm that hit the area the previous day, it was a great opportunity to meet technicians, spa dealers and trade professionals and present Gecko's new Y series of retrofit packs. 

Mathieu gave two 2 hour sessions where he reviewed all about Gecko's Y series: model selection, installation, use, test, troubleshoot and useful tips.

Next event is another Baystate Opportunity Day scheduled February 24 in King of Prussia, PA. Click here for more info.
