The International SPA Association (ISPA) recently concluded a successful Stronger Together Summit attended virtually by nearly 1,000 spa industry leaders and professionals. The event, which was held from May 10 – 14, was ISPA’s first ever large-scale virtual event and featured Power Sessions led by renowned authors and speakers Seth Godin, Seth Mattison and Dr. Bryan K. Williams, as well as educational Knowledge Builder and All About You sessions that included insights from more than 50 industry experts and leading thinkers on subjects critical to the spa industry and its recovery from COVID-19.
“Through the Stronger Together Summit, ISPA stayed true to our mission of elevating the spa industry and providing educational opportunities that help our members grow and succeed,” said ISPA President Lynne McNees. “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who attended, our wonderful speakers, our 26 event sponsors and 30 Product Learning Lab Partners and, of course, all of the 2021 ISPA Foundation Spring Auction donors and bidders for raising nearly $54,000 for the ISPA Foundation.”
Attendees of the 2021 ISPA Stronger Together Summit will have full on-demand access to recordings of 27 Knowledge Builder sessions through August 6. Registration for the event remains open, and those who register now will receive the same access to Summit recordings and resources until that date. The first 750 North American registrants received special Inspiration Boxes comprised of exciting products from 10 ISPA resource partner members.
ISPA will continue to collect feedback from Stronger Together Summit attendees and members as the association considers any potential future virtual events. The ISPA Town Hall Series will resume on June 17 and will also be held virtually. The 2022 ISPA Conference & Expo will take place in person, May 2 – 4, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
