In an exclusive and intimate results-oriented business setting, SPATEC SPRING 2015 will bring together America's most important spa operators of leading medium-to-large hotel resort, destination, athletic, medical and day spas to meet with key leading domestic and international suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings over two dedicated business days.
Throughout the event, attendees meet fellow spa owners and directors, as well as suppliers during meals and other planned networking activities. This fosters communication and cross sharing of ideas, best practices and future business relationships.
Build strategic partnerships with the suppliers you’d like to do business with
Buyers who come to SPATEC are key spa operators of leading medium to large hotel, resort destination and day spas. Buyers are hand selected and invited to attend the event at a five star resort at no cost. They are pre-qualified and represent some of the top, high volume spas in the country.
Spa owners and directors are able to conduct months' worth of meetings over two intensive days in 5-star surroundings organized to support business. No distractions, no telephone calls, just dedicated time with like-minded colleagues focused on doing business.
Conduct serious business
SPATEC buyers pre-select the suppliers they wish to meet and receive a personalized meetings schedule based on their preferences. Each buyer receives up to 20 meetings.
SPATEC is your best opportunity to meet directly with new companies entering the North American spa and retail market, as well as further business relationships with existing suppliers.
Network with your peers
In addition to the one-on-one meetings, you also have the opportunity to exchange views and ideas with other owners and operators from the North American spa industry.
This is a rare opportunity to discuss common challenges and opportunities providing you with unique insights about where the industry is heading. This is an integral component of the program and of significant value.

Face to face appointments
Conduct months' worth of meetings over two intensive days in 5-star surroundings organized to support business. You select the buyers you wish to meet. You receive a personalized schedule of one-on-one meetings incorporating your requests and those selected by the buyers. The ratio of buyers to suppliers is strictly controlled and the number of suppliers attending from each category is also limited.
On the second day, there will be a full hour for the suppliers to transform their meeting area into a tabletop display. During this hour, buyers may introduce themselves and view products of the suppliers they did not get a chance to have a one-on-one meeting with. This allows you additional opportunities to meet those buyers you were unable to meet during the one-on-one meetings.
The foundation of SPATEC is based upon a meetings forum that creates the ideal networking environment. Everyone stays at the same resort and attends with their mind focused on business and the desire to derive maximum benefit from the event.
Additional activities built into the meetings' program, such as a the Supplier Showcase, networking event, lunches, receptions and evening activities all ensure that you will meet with your key targets and have the opportunity to develop further business relationships.
