SPATEC UK and Europe will bring together around 70 of UK and Europe's most important spa, wellness and beauty operators (buyers) of leading medium-to-large hotel, resort, destination, medical and day spas to meet with over 70 key leading domestic and international suppliers to participate in a series of one-to-one meetings over two dedicated business days.
SPATEC is a very efficient use of my time, where I can dedicate 20 minutes of quality time to each supplier. I have been telling many suppliers that if they want to meet me they should book SPATEC as they will be guaranteed devoted time to speak.
Andrew Gibson, Group Spa Director of Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Both buyers and suppliers choose who they would like to meet and are each given a personal schedule of 20 minute meetings. Each meeting takes place at the supplier's dedicated meeting table. These pre-arranged face-to-face meetings allow delegates to talk business and network in a way that is simply not possible with trade shows and conferences.
The vibrancy, debate and volume of market intelligence generated and gained from a gathering of top operators and key suppliers can never be underestimated. In an environment focused upon business with a selected gathering of key level executives SPATEC creates a truly unique experience.
The first day will commence with a brief seminar programme tackling topics relevant to the industry. Respected, informed and motivational speakers from within the sector and from other business disciplines are invited, to create a perfect start for the day's activities, stimulating debate that will continue throughout the programme and beyond the event.
The concept of SPATEC was created by McLean Events in 1996. McLean's formula provides for a series of highly focused industry forums for senior executives and leading suppliers from specific markets. Meeting in 5-star facilities, away from the distractions of the office and day to day operations, make these forums uniquely different. They are now regarded as the premier industry events within their respective markets.
McLean Events International organises meeting forums worldwide across four industry sectors:
Health & Fitness, Hotel Management, Conference & Incentive, Spa & Beauty.
