SPATEC coverGuaranteed Qualified Audience

You'll know in advance exactly which buyers will be attending SPATEC - along with each buyer's company profile, projected spending budgets, services and products they are interested in sourcing and other valuable market information. The buyers are carefully pre-selected and invited so you are guaranteed a qualified audience of buyers.  Only spa owners and directors of the major resort, hotel, destination, chain day spas and design and management companies are invited.

On the second day, there will be a full hour for the suppliers to transform their meeting area into a tabletop display. During this hour, buyers may introduce themselves and view products of the suppliers they did not get a chance to have a one-on-one meeting with. This allows you additional opportunities to meet those buyers you were unable to meet during the one-on-one meetings.
