ISPA to host Talent Symposium and Resource Partner Summit in 2020

The International SPA Association (ISPA) is excited to announce the addition of the ISPA Talent Symposium and ISPA Resource Partner Summit, taking place April 14–15 at The Ritz-Carlton, Bacara in Santa Barbara, CA. This two-day event will be a first of its kind for the spa industry and focus solely on workforce issues. 

Engaging one’s team is key to attracting and retaining employees in today’s competitive labor market, and 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 high-impact 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 organization 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 valued resource partner members, such as the rise of online retailing, how to capture the attention of spa decision-makers and more. In this distinct event, leading spa industry professionals will offer feedback and guided think-tank discussions will emphasize 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 September 11–13, 2019 in Las Vegas. For more information about ISPA, visit their website at www.experienceispa.com.
