Over the past year, the International SPA Association (ISPA) has joyfully witnessed the immense strength displayed by this industry when fellow spa and resource partner professionals pull together to inspire, learn from and support one another. This year, ISPA hosted the members-only 2021 ISPA Stronger Together Summit to solidify the bonds developed in 2020 and rebuild the future of our industry on a foundation that is stronger together. The Summit was designed for maximum impact through professional education in Power Sessions, Knowledge Builder Sessions, Town Hall Sessions and more.
Celebrated speakers Seth Godin, Seth Mattison and Dr. Bryan K. Williams led Power Sessions for everyone in attendance as they shared messages that are equal parts inspiration and practical application.

These educational sessions were led by experts from across (and outside) the spa industry, focusing on crucial subjects such as leadership and management, talent and workforce solutions, retail strategies and financial management.
Town Hall Sessions
Attendees listened, learned and participated in Town Hall-style discussions featuring spa industry leaders as they shared their real-life insights on the world of spa.
“All About You” Sessions
These brief sessions featured a diverse set of uplifting tutorials, tips and inspiring ideas focusing on personal growth and lifestyle activities.
