ISPA Conference and Expo rescheduled to help industry focus on reopening preparations
By Megan Whitby 13 May 2020
The organisation has recently produced a COVID-19 Reopening Toolkit to control and assist spa reopening planning
The International Spa Association (ISPA) has announced it has rescheduled and relocated the 30th annual ISPA Conference and Expo.

The event has been moved to 10-12 May 2021 and will take place at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

ISPA made the decision to allow the spa and wellness community to focus on preparing their businesses for reopening and welcoming back guests. The organisation is also working to reangle the event to offer relevant content and support following the COVID-19 crisis.

Lynne McNees, ISPA president, commented: “We’re taking this opportunity to pause and re-imagine everything around the conference in order to ensure we provide the industry with what it truly needs.”

The organisation has recently produced a COVID-19 Reopening Toolkit to control and assist spa reopening planning, once businesses are officially allowed to open by their respective governing bodies.

McNees continued: “As spas prepare for and begin to thoughtfully reopen, ISPA’s main priority continues to be providing resources that will help you tackle each new phase and the economic and health landscape evolves in the weeks ahead."

In future, all ISPA Conferences and Expos will take place in the second quarter of the year instead of during September or October, as has previously been the case.

ISPA has announced it's updating and finalising details regarding registration, exhibiting and schedule details, and that more information will be released in the coming weeks on the official event website.
