Overview:

In an exclusive and intimate results-oriented business setting, SPATEC SPRING 2014 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.

SPATEC: Unique, Powerful and Productive

The first event of its kind in North America, SPATEC creates an unparalleled way to do business. 

SPATEC takes place in an exclusive venue away from the pressures of the office. It’s focused, productive and offers networking in both formal and relaxed environments to maximize every moment spent at the event.

A key component to a successful spa business is the ability to develop a network of industry partners - suppliers who can provide products that can distinguish a spa from its competition and fellow owners and managers who can share best practices.  SPATEC creates the platform to foster these relationships--the event combines a forum of one-on-one meetings bringing together top spa directors and owners and leading suppliers with great networking activities for the perfect combination to promote business relationships.

One-On-One Meetings

SPATEC brings together America's most important spa operators of leading medium-to-large hotel resort, destination, athletic, and day spas to meet with key leading domestic and international suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings. Both buyers and suppliers get to choose who they would like to meet with and are each given a schedule of meetings. SPATEC takes place in an exclusive venue away from the pressures of the office allowing both buyers and suppliers to focus on the business at hand.

The Process

Buyers and suppliers will receive a password to access the event website where they may post their company profile and contact details. Buyers' profiles will include details of projected spending budgets and other valuable market information. Both buyers and suppliers have the opportunity to select who they would like to meet with.

A customized meeting schedule is then drawn up for each company based on both buyer & vendor requests.

Each supplier is allocated a meeting table in a ballroom where all meetings take place over two days. Each meeting lasts 20 minutes.

There are a total of up to 22 meetings over the two days.

Networking Program

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. 

The Supplier Showcase

On the second day of the event, 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 may not have had a chance to meet with during the scheduled meetings.

Keynote Topic - Global Spa Innovation & Trends

Spas have been at the vanguard of the North American beauty scene for almost 25 years now, and we’ve seen amazing growth over the years.  It is estimated that in 1993 Americans received 75 million massages (NEJM); that number has almost doubled for 2012 to 145 million massages (AMTA).  Spa as an industry is estimated to have global revenues totaling over $60 billion, which is incredible given that spas were practically non-existent 25 years ago.

But what’s next?  Spas are not known as hotbeds of innovation, and menus around the world look awfully similar: massages, skincare, body treatments, hands & feet.  How should spas evolve in order to continue enticing clients with new products, services and even business models?  Should spas evolve into wellness providers, representing a $2 trillion market, or continue on with the tried and true?

We’ll take a look at some of the innovative ideas and fresh concepts in treatments, products, amenities and facility design, and business models, and gain some inspiration on how the converging worlds of health, wellness & spa could be adapted for use in your own spa business.
