“This year’s SPATEC – my third –gave me connection with three new suppliers whom we have already been in contact with. These new connections have been invaluable, and equally valuable was the opportunity to connect with at least four suppliers with whom Six Senses has a current relationship.”
Sheron Anne Boddy, Group Operations Director EMEA, Six Senses
“A fantastic business networking event that has enabled me to get in front of key decision makers. This has resulted in excellent new business and the forging of existing business relationships. SPATEC is an unrivalled business forum that combines just the right degree of business and social network in a relaxed environment.”
Dean Nathanson, CACI International
"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, VP of Spa & Wellness for Fairmont Raffles Hotels and Resorts International
"It is always nice to join SPATEC as this event is simply another marketing tool that can be used to promote our products. We are confident that with a little time we will get some business from the Spatec Marbella 2012."
Sammy Gharieni, Founder & CEO – Gharieni GmbH
"As a first timer at SPATEC I found the event extremely productive. Meetings with the suppliers were fast, intense and effective and networking with people who are genuinely passionate about the spa industry was a lot of fun."
Michael Clarke, Raison d'Etre
"A fantastic event which had a mix of low key networking opportunities and real one to one sales opportunities with key buyers which allowed us to build new relations as well as strengthen existing ones."
Laura Kelly, Decleor & CARITA UK
“I found SPATEC very beneficial this year on many levels, meeting potential suppliers that we had earmarked to work with, meeting suppliers that we had not envisioned working with but now are and making new friends and networking with many individuals I would never have got the opportunity to meet, THANK YOU!”
Leon Trayling, Spa Director - Blythswood Square Spa
“Well organized with a good climate for resolving current spa challenges. Super mix of spa professionals and experts.”
Michel Henke-Cilenti, Managing Director – Starcoach
“Very impressed; it’s really well organized and I love the set-up. And of course to be in a fabulous location like Marbella, that tops it all.”
Mary Bell, Managing Director – Urban Retreat
“This was our fourth year at SPATEC and, as always, we found it an excellent way to do business, meet new people in the industry and catch up with friends.”
Lisa Gerrard, Managing Director, Gerrard International
"One of the most valuable aspects of SPATEC is the instant peer review and comment that a buyer can get on-the-spot. You see a new product or service and can get valuable feedback from trusted references at the event. This is priceless as it allows instant sorting and categorising relevant business contacts."
Sean O'Connor, Group Spa Manager - Design & Development - Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group
“As a brand SpaRitual has been exhibiting at trade shows for over 5 years but this was the first SPATEC that we have attended. The event was really well organized and I enjoyed both the one to one business meetings and the social aspect. Having the opportunity to present your brand to the key decision makers of some of the top spas in the UK and getting to know them on a more personal level is the best way to do business. You are not only endorsing your brand but forming relationships with key people within the industry.”
Rachel Scaife, Account Manager – SpaRitual
