A Business Forum for the Health and Beauty Industry
The SPATEC portfolio comprises of a series of appointment based events that bring together key spa operators of leading medium-to-large hotel, resort, destination, athletic, medical and day spas to meet with key leading domestic and international suppliers. Each SPATEC event's goal is to bring the industry together at a five-star location and provide the ideal platform for spa professionals to build relationship with hand-picked suppliers in a relaxed environment conducive to serious business. Aditionally, professional education programs, engaging networking activies and a Supplier Showcase round out the event experience.
Leading spa suppliers and vendors from the following categories are encouraged to apply. SPATEC will only allow a finite number of suppliers from specified categories to ensure a robust and diverse selection of companies.
Amenities, Apparel, Aromatherapy, Beauty Products, Body Toning, Cosmetics, Fitness Equipment, Hydrotherapy, Linens/Robes/Towels, Massage, Retail, Nail Treatment, Skincare, Software, Spa Equipment, Sun Protection, Steam Baths, Tanning, Uniforms and everything relevant to the Spa and Beauty industry.
SPATEC is designed to ensure participants get the most out of the experience.
Both buyers and suppliers get to choose with whom they would like to meet and are each given a schedule of meetings. Each meeting is 20 minutes in length and takes place at the suppliers meeting tables. These pre-arranged one-on-one meetings allow delegates to talk business and network in a way that is simply not possible with trade shows and conferences.
We are pleased to have Jeremy McCarthy, Global Spa Development & Operations for Starwood Hotels & Resorts be our keynote speaker at our SPATEC Spring Event.
Throughout the event, attendees meet each other through the official meeting program as well as during the breakfasts, lunches and dinners and other networking activities.
On the second day of the program, there will be a two hour for the suppliers to transform their meeting spot into a tabletop display. During this time, buyers may introduce themselves and view products of the suppliers they may not have had a chance to meet with during appointment hours.
SPATEC is organized by Questex-McLean Events in partnership with American Spa Magazine and supported by Spa magazine. SPATEC was launched in 2005 as a yearly event.
Due to the overwhelming success the event had, in 2008, it expanded into a twice-yearly format with events in the spring and fall. SPATEC brings together 75-90 key suppliers with 75-90 key buyers to have over 1500 private, business-focused meetings.
Questex-McLean Events organizes meeting forums worldwide across other industry sectors:
