International SPA Association

Contact  |  Updates
ISPA members gather in person each year at the ISPA Conference to experience the latest innovations and trending developments in the spa industry
Background
Since 1991, the International SPA Association has been recognised worldwide as the professional organisation and voice of the spa industry. As a non-profit trade organisation, ISPA members are the heart of the association and encompass the entire arena of the spa world from day, club, destination, medical and resort/hotel spas to service providers, educators and resource partners. Through their volunteer contributions, the association works in unison to address the opportunities, challenges and advance the future of the global spa industry.

Main products and services
ISPA advances the spa industry by providing invaluable educational, research and networking opportunities, promoting the value of the spa experience and speaking as the authoritative voice to foster professionalism and growth among its membership. Through offering practical resources, cutting-edge industry research reports, inspiring networking events and more, ISPA seeks to assist its members in surpassing their operational goals and capitalising on every opportunity to maximise revenue, sharing the benefits of spa and making a difference in their communities. From topical Snapshot Survey research reports to the annual ISPA Conference, members are invited to take advantage of the collective knowledge and strength of the spa community in a way that equips them with the necessary tools to rise above challenges and provide the best possible experience in the lives of guests and clients.

USPs
ISPA is the leading global network of spa industry professionals and the chief source of practical resources which sustain spa professionals through prosperity and hardship alike. The sense of belonging, togetherness, co-operation and collaboration ISPA has cultivated throughout the past few years demonstrates the strength and impact of ISPA’s collective spirit, as the association was called the “mothership of the spa industry” in the height of the pandemic due to its resiliency in the face of staggering uncertainty.

ISPA is also the only non-profit international association featuring professional education which applies specifically to the spa industry. Additionally, ISPA’s Pulse magazine is constantly kept fresh with articles on pressing industry subjects, along with insights and updates from a deeply knowledgeable membership base.

Where in the world?
ISPA is fortunate to have members all around the globe and a Board of Directors representing a diverse set of regions. The ISPA Headquarters team is based in Lexington, Kentucky, USA.
Future plans
ISPA’s primary goal in the next year is to build on the momentum gained from two successful ISPA Conferences which saw thousands of industry professionals come together to network and learn how to blaze the trail into a future where spa is a critical aspect of consumers’ health and wellness practices.

The association will also build upon its commitment to equipping spa professionals with workforce tools through the unveiling of a new, robust Talent Toolkit in 2023 which will help spas attract, retain and engage talent through a variety of essential resources.

ISPA will continue to focus on its work with partners, legislators, educational institutions and career fairs to promote and educate students and employee prospects about the many benefi ts of a career in spa. Together, we can make a difference.

ISPA has unveiled a trio of extraordinary 2024 ISPA Conference Power Session keynotes featuring leadership development authority Ryan Leak, innovation and resilience scholar Suneel Gupta and MMA expert-turned-philanthropist Justin Wren.

Registration is now open and spa industry professionals can lock in early bird registration rates for the event at attendISPA.com. The event will be held from 23-25 April, 2024, at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, AZ.

Ryan Leak is a dynamic thought leader in leadership development, known for captivating business audiences around the world.

Every year, he advises 200,000 people to “chase failure” as part of his engaging and transformative presentations, and his expertise has inspired leaders from Fortune 500 companies to professional sports teams.

Suneel Gupta has dedicated his career to helping individuals build better habits for life and work.

Beyond transforming thousands of lives through connecting individuals with certified nutritionists and trainers at an affordable price, he has also earned acclaim as a bestselling author, a Harvard Medical School visiting scholar and a passionate advocate for bolstering emotional resilience.

Justin “The Big Pygmy” Wren is a five-time All-American and two-time National Champion Wrestler and UFC veteran.

Beyond his impressive MMA career, Wren has dedicated his life to making a positive impact. Inspired by a life-changing trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Justin founded Fight for the Forgotten to focus on providing clean water, education and empowerment to Pygmy communities in Africa. He advocates for indigenous rights and is a powerful voice for marginalized communities.

ISPA President Lynne McNees commented on the line-up: “We were delighted to be able to bring Ryan, Suneel and Justin to speak to ISPA’s international audience of spa leaders.

Taking to the halls of Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay from 2-4 May is a lineup of impressive speakers ready to address diverse challenges and topics including pricing strategies, talent acquisition and recruitment, leadership guidance, consumer research, digital sales tactics, meeting the modern consumer, engaging the multi-generational workplace, elevating partnerships, mindfulness practices and more.

ISPA's Town Hall series to go live at 2022 Vegas conference
The International Spa Association (ISPA) is bringing its popular virtual Town Hall Series to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, live and in-person from 2-4 May for the 2022 ISPA Conference.

ISPA hosted 11 vital Town Halls in 2020 and eight further sessions in 2021, but none will be as critical for industry professionals as the two sessions in May.

With a pair of extremely pertinent topics in store for attendees, these will be two must-see sessions packed with relevant expert insights.

ISPA members drive the focus of education for each ISPA Conference, and this year they’ve chosen to centre the Town Hall discussions on “The Future of Spa” (featuring executives from Accor, Canyon Ranch, Massage Heights and Sensei) and “Talent Strategies in the Age of the Great Resignation” (featuring workforce experts from inside and outside the industry).

ISPA is striving to provide attendees with a forecast of the industry in a post-pandemic world, along with a pointed exploration of the most important aspects of retaining and recruiting top talent.

The ultimate goal is to arm attendees with actionable takeaways that will serve to refresh and rejuvenate spa professionals whose idea stores may be running low amid high demand and limited staffing.

ISPA to present 2022 ISPA US Spa Industry Study findings at Las Vegas conference
Year after year, International SPA Association (ISPA) members cite the wealth of research reports available to them in the ISPA Research Library as one of their most valued member benefits.

This comes as no surprise, as spa professionals are constantly on the lookout for data to support their most important operational decisions in an industry that is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the modern consumer.

Conducted annually in partnership with renowned research organization Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), the 2022 ISPA US Spa Industry Study presents the state of the industry as indicated by total revenues, spa visits, average revenue per visit, the total number of spa locations and staffing levels.

These ‘Big Five’ statistics from the 2022 ISPA US Spa Industry Study will be unveiled at the 2022 ISPA Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada and all ISPA members will have access to the full research report.

ISPA also conducts consumer research studies and snapshot surveys, which are a constant flow of insight for spa professionals seeking real-time impressions of how members are handling trending issues in the industry. With a new topic for each survey, snapshot surveys equip ISPA members with ideas to support innovative and critical initiatives.

Through an abundance of networking, education, research and exposure opportunities, ISPA members are empowered to experience the richness of the collective spa family and make connections that assist in their professional development while building their business.
