ISPA 2016 in Las Vegas
The ISPA 2016 Conference in Las Vegas was fantastic! I’m happy I was able to attend this year. There were some wonderful keynote speakers, educational aspects and spa vendors. The biggest takeaways for me this year were spending time catching up with people, meeting new people and the scope of industry action and innovation forward.
The Spa industry is a close knit community and has grown so much in a relatively short period of time. Only 40 years ago, spa wasn’t yet an industry. Our market has seen exciting and rapid growth over the years. And there has been a true and notable evolution within the last decade of change.
ISPA was formed in 1991, as the International SPA Association has been recognized worldwide as the professional organization and voice of the spa industry, representing health and wellness facilities and providers in more than 70 countries.
The conference theme this year was INNOVATE. Inspired by Dream. Discover. Do. It was fitting and a wonderful event. I left feeling inspired and reconnected to some of my favorite people in this industry. There are so many ways we will continue to grow together in the coming years!
*ISPA 2018 will be held in Phoenix, Arizona! I’m excited that it will be held in our home state. I look forward to what that will bring and the ISPA experience in Arizona. To learn more about ISPA click here.
