Dear visitors,

As all began.

Since December 2003. M.V.Kuchurkina has made the decision on creation of the main action for the spa-industry.

What has formed a basis of the given idea?

Studying with 1996 Spa-industry, in 1997 has been created the first tourist department on sending of clients on beauty farms, has headed its M.V.Kuchurkina,
It with 1994 was the director of the first professional magazine of beauty, visiting more than 20 factories, more than 50 exhibitions,
It is deduced on the market more than 20 firms. The main international expert in Russia, by a recognition of owners of a leading exhibition in Bologna.

From history: in Europe has passed for two years before, has passed the unique European spa-summit in Slovenia (pay attention that during the period with 2006-2009 we three times have visited Slovenia).
And then there was a scandal - the American side and the European party Ispa have accused each other of theft of financial assets, and for a month have cancelled Spa the summit in Stockholm.
How many doubtful projects were then: and an exit from membership of leading networks of hotels and creation of small corporate associations,
And a response of the paid published financial reports (either in 2007-or in 2008) etc.).
We have got acquainted with the given association on Global Spa Summit in New York in 2007, we do not work with the given association while, on accurate positions.

Therefore we, receiving the information from foreign partners, we do not allow to accept all offers coming to us, at us the standards of an estimation of spa persons ,
And for all time of existence of our actions, we have never invited "the Guru" which overall objective, for another's account to make a name.
Also it is not necessary to learn us, consider our experience and knowledge. We force foreign experts to respect the Russian business.
Do not rush on all offers, think what for you visit actions, ask questions, participate in a life spa more actively.

In August there was a first issue of the magazine Spa report.
We asked leading professional editions to allow to make to us the spa-appendix in the edition.
But it was necessary nothing to anybody. Therefore, so it is pleasant to see now attempts to make the spa-appendix and magazines.

Russian Spa Industry Summit'04

September 8-10, 2004
Sochi, Russia
Radisson Sas Lazurnaya Hotel congress-hall

Conference, master classes, presentations, exposition

Sochi is a town occupying 3500 square meters' area, located in a narrow zone between the main Caucasian crest and the Black sea. The resort is 145 km long. The terrain is rich in landscapes: there are downy foothills, seaside hollows, mountain peaks, and rocky ravines. Due to mountains around that reach 2500-3000 meters above sea level, Sochi has a humid subtropical climate unique for Russia. Sochi forests occupy up to 80% of the resort area. Evergreen bushes, Caucasian ancient fir trees, oak and beech groves, spicy odor of magnolias, medlars and Japanese camellias...

In the center of the city there is a relic yew & box grove with trees aged over 700-800 years. Breathing is easy in Sochi, because the seaside parks make a natural inhaler. The air is enriched with iodine, oxygen, and strongly ionized.

Over 300 natural mineral springs are located there. Matsesta, a sulfate chloride sodium spring, is recognized globally. It comprises hydrogen sulphide, iodine, bromine, fluorine, and colloid sulphur. Within city health centers, Matsesta waters are used in full and cabinet bath, inhalation, ablution, and shower.

Sochi has over 100 health centers: sanatoriums, hotels with medical cure, therapeutic suites. All resorts are divided into climatological, balneological, and mudtherapeutic. Mud treatment in Sochi has over 50 years of history.

Sochi 2004
Action would not take place without the active help of sponsors - the companies "Wallex M", the companies "Balance cosmetics", the companies "Germane de cappuchine".
10000 invitations have been dispatched, were arrival of all experts is invited and paid, is not dependent on their mutual relations among themselves.
It was the tactical step - to judge lecturers, in own opinion. And it was the defensible step - only 30 % of lecturers have received invitations to act in the further programs.
Therefore, when you think of how it is difficult to us to work with competitors, we so do not think. We paid for their arrival who to whom should?

Russian Spa Professional Awards - rewarding of spa salons has been created.
As the information sponsor the magazine House has acted.
So, as it was look in folders.

In November 2004 we the second time have visited an exhibition in Hong Kong and have visited spas objects.
