American Spa is bringing back its Women in Wellness Leadership Conference twice in 2019. The first event will take place 12 March, 2019, in New York City, and the second will take place on the US West Coast in October 2019.
The conferences will be designed for women in the wellness industry looking to develop their professional and personal leadership skills while networking with their peers. They will feature speakers who will address a variety of business topics, delving deeper into some themes addressed at the inaugural conference as well as even more targeted leadership, entrepreneurship, and business tracks.
“I’m beyond thrilled with how our first conference came together and inspired so many women — and men — who attended,” said Julie Keller Callaghan, editor-in-chief and publisher of American Spa and founder of the conference. “We did comprehensive post-event research, and we found that attendees loved the content and want even more extensive and meaningful programming that will give them the tools they need to succeed, whether it is in their current roles, their future endeavours, or their entrepreneurial aspirations. My team and I look forward to creating two even more memorable events in 2019.”
Tickets to each event are US$400 per person, with prices increase after 31 December for the New York event and after 30 June, 2019, for the West Coast event.
Both conferences will follow a format that includes keynote speakers, breakout sessions, a networking lunch, and an end-of-day cocktail party with activities like a photo booth, mini spa treatments and experiences, and more.
Attendees will also receive a gift bag with more than US$300 worth of goodies, local hotel and spa discounts, and passes to IECSC New York for the March event. Post-event, attendees will have access to a private American Spa Institute eLearning course with videos, presentations, and more from the day.
Registration for the March 2019 event is now open at www.americanspawiw.com
. The West Coast dates, location, and registration will be announced shortly, as will the roster of speakers for both events.
