The International SPA Association (ISPA) has announced the addition of the ISPA Talent Symposium and ISPA Resource Partner Summit, taking place 14-15 April 2020 at The Ritz-Carlton, Bacara in Santa Barbara, California.

The two-day event will be a first of its kind for the spa industry and focus solely on workforce issues.

The new ISPA Talent Symposium will highlight energetic and innovative approaches to solving workforce challenges. In addition to insight from established spa industry and workforce development professionals, the event will feature a keynote speaker providing takeaways attendees can use to build an engaged workforce.

“As spa revenues and spa visits continue to exceed record highs, so does the number of vacancies within the industry,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees. “The ISPA Talent Symposium will explore ways to acquire new talent as well as how to grow talent from within your organisation and build strong leaders.”

The day prior to the ISPA Talent Symposium, a half-day Resource Partner Summit will take place that will focus exclusively on the issues that matter to ISPA’s resource partner members, such as the rise of online retailing, how to capture the attention of spa decision-makers and more. Leading spa industry professionals will offer feedback and guided think-tank discussions will emphasise resource partner’s voice in the spa industry.

Additional details about the ISPA Talent Symposium and ISPA Resource Partner Summit will be announced at the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo, taking place 11-13 September, 2019 in Las Vegas.
