ISPA 2021 Conference & Expo Update: 2021 Conference Canceled

Due to the ongoing restrictions and safety considerations around the COVID-19 pandemic, the International Spa Association (ISPA) has made the decision to cancel their 2021 Conference & Expo. Instead, ISPA will hold a virtual event in May, the ISPA Stronger Together Summit, with a focus on education. If you have registered for the 2021 ISPA Conference & Expo, secured a booth or signed on as a sponsor, ISPA will reach out over the next week with more details.

ISPA posted the following statement on their website:

After closely evaluating multiple scenarios for an in-person ISPA Conference & Expo in May and the ever-growing list of unknown factors including travel restrictions, reduced meeting capacity requirements and a vaccine timeline that extended beyond the event dates, the decision was made by the ISPA Board to cancel the 2021 event. The health and safety of our members, staff and partners remain ISPA’s top priority. 

The ISPA Conference & Expo is one of many benefits extended to ISPA members. Even though the ISPA community won’t be able to join together in person, members will continue to have access to a wealth of virtual educational events, resources and research studies. In the weeks ahead, exciting new virtual offerings will be added to the lineup to keep the ISPA community connected in innovative ways to help ensure the spa industry thrives as we move forward together through these extraordinary times. 

ISPA’s Conference-related preparations will now shift to the 2022 ISPA Conference & Expo, which will be hosted at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 2–4, 2022. Be sure to mark your calendars as this will be a spa industry gathering you won’t want to miss.
