Paramount Returns from Spain

Over 300 customers and guests of Paramount Pool and Spa Systems were recently treated to a wonderful week in Spain for Paramount’s 16th annual Passport to Paradise trip. The first three daywere spent in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The Awards and Recognition Banquet was held in a very unique setting outside of the city; the Cavas Codorniu Winery. Guests enjoyed private tours of the caves beneath the winery holding over 11 million bottles of Cava. The group was then transported via private high speed train to the city of Marbella in the Costa del Sol region on the shores of the Meditteranean. From Marbella the participants had numerous excursions to choose from including; Gibraltar, Tangiers, Jerez, Mijas, Cordoba, La Alhambra and other interesting destinations.

Paramount extends a warm thank you to all participants and to their vendor partners; Pentair/StaRite, PebbleTec, Structure Studios, Cover Pools, Pool Cover Specialists and Wet Edge Technologies for their support.

Passport to Paradise 2013 and 2014

Hawaii-SwitzerlandThis year we are taking a completely different approach to our Passport to Paradise incentive trip announcement. We’ve decided to give you both 2013 and 2014 destinations. In 2013, we are headed to Hawaii to the beautiful Kahala Hotel and Resort. The trip will take place January 14 – 19, 2013.
In 2014, we will be going to a completely new destination; Switzerland. In Switzerland, we’ll be staying at the magnificent Fairmont Le Montreux Palace in Geneva.
By announcing both trips, we hope builders will be able to easier decide whether or not to roll their points to the following year. We hope our builders are as excited about these destinations as we are. Happy Selling.
