V Russian Spa Industry Summit 2008V Russian Spa Industry Summit 2008
22-24 September 2008.
Annually, Guild of SPA Experts welcomes long-awaited spa-professionals at its main event of year – Russian SPA Industry Summit. In the previous years we conducted our meetings in Sochi (2004), Gelendjik (2006), however, Moscow and Moscow Region represent important zones of SPA-industry. The structure of the event was changed this year: familiarization SPA trips used to come on the last day of the summit. In 2008 we have arranged such a tour just before the main conference. 90% of the participants turned out to be our new clients, which renewed our database sufficiently. This is the key indicator of the development of the SPA industry in Russia for us. More than 50 professional from Moscow, Moscow Region, Ekaterinburg, Vladimir, Kostroma, Uhta, Tobolsk, Penza, Ijevst took part in the SPA Summit 2008. The results of this meeting will be seen in January 2009 already. Our main achievements are:
- presentation of the world statistics of the SPA industry for the first time;
- introduction of the new contributors/spokespeople;
- visit to the newly-opened SPAs;
- introduction of the new SPA-techniques;
- tasting of the natural products (basis for SPA-cuisine), such as tea and milk products.
Our event is distinguishable from the open seminars, conducted at the cosmetics-,tourism- and fitness-fairs. We are the professionals of the SPA-industry, which builds-up separate status for us, as well as gives us obligations. We are in charge of our contributors and techniques, that is why there is nothing unexpected in our life.
