CPO Class

Wednesday

August 25, 2021

9 am - 6 pm 

The CPO training course is one of the most respected certifications in the pool and spa industry. Commercial pools are often required to have CPO certified staff members on hand. The course is an excellent primer of pool/spa sanitation, equipment, and operation. While the course itself is not built to be oriented toward float tanks, this class will be taught by Dr. Roy Vore, who you may have seen speak at previous Float Conference. Dr. Vore will help put the information in the context of a float center.

A conference favorite! With this tour, you'll join a small group to delight in tasty adult beverages (non-alcoholic available too!) as you get to know one another on the drive. You'll visit two local float centers to get a behind-the-scenes tour of their facilities. It's a moving party with a whole lot of education AND fun!

Whirlyball at Whirlyball Brookfield

This year's Float Conference will be our first hybrid event - everyone can choose to attend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin or online!

In Milwaukee: 

Speakers will fly in from all over the world to share their expertise about float research, sanitation, tank maintenance, small business operations, float center marketing, and so much more. Presenters will facilitate hands-on workshops covering topics like marketing and business needs. And you can finally take some time for self care with our wellness sessions, such as qi gong, light therapy, and didgeridoo. Conference sponsors will have booths, highlighting the latest products and services they offer for the float industry. We'll have incredible networking experiences, including intimate group discussions, lunches and breaks, and epic parties! Plus, there may or may not be an award for the most hugs given. 

Virtually: 

We want to make sure that anyone unable to travel this August is still able to participate in the Float Conference! Virtual attendees will be able to watch our speakers from the main stage, and participate in group discussions. They will also be able to connect with fellow attendees via chat or video. Sponsors will have virtual listings, plus the option to message or video chat with attendees. And don't worry - virtual attendees will still be able to party!
