What's New at #ISPA2019?

An Evening at the Beach

The ISPA Farewell Party is getting a face lift! Get ready to start Conference off with a bang at the Welcome Party. Inspired by member feedback, the Welcome Party will be hosted by TAO Beach inside The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on September 11 from 6:30 - 9 pm.

At this fun, casual event, you can mix and mingle with fellow Conference attendees and do some after-hours networking with professionals from across our industry. TAO Beach is sure to be a fun host, as a dancing area and DJ are set to set an energetic tone for the week. For those not looking to cut a rug, there are seven cabanas available for relaxation and plentiful outdoor space for conversation.

Admission is included with a full-Conference registration, so come on out and enjoy the beach!

Important Details:

  • There will be a photo booth and props available for pictures, and don’t forget to caption your post with #ISPA2019. Then, sit back and watch the ‘likes’ roll in.
  • Asian cuisine—served buffet-style—will be available to Welcome Party attendees, and every entrant will receive one drink ticket to use at the bar.
  • Attire will be smart-casual, and keep in mind that Las Vegas isn’t exactly known for being chilly: shorts, dresses, capris and sandals are all fine options to beat the Vegas heat.
  • To enter the Welcome Party, you must have both your Conference badge and a photo I.D., such as a driver’s license or a passport. Without photo I.D., you cannot be admitted to TAO Beach.

If you have questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us at ispa@ispastaff.com.


Spa Workforce Super Session

ISPA members worldwide have told us that their biggest challenge is finding qualified talent at both the management and service provider levels, as well as retaining the talent that they already have.

Plan to arrive a day early for the first-ever Spa Workforce Super Session. Attend this 2 ½ hour pre-Conference event led by Bryan Williams and take a deep dive into one of the spa industry’s top priorities: recruiting, retaining and engaging a remarkable workforce. With numerous industries struggling with the same workforce shortages and challenges, it’s essential that spas work together to stand out and capture the attention of the talent market. Now is the time to enrich your workplace and race past the stiff competition. 

Admission to the Super Session is complimentary with full-Conference registration, but you must RSVP to attend. The RSVP form is included as part of your online Conference registration process online.
