ISPA to Partner with FEED at 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo

The International SPA Association (ISPA) announced a partnership with FEED to provide food for 16,000 children in need on behalf of the global spa community. All attendees of the 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo will receive a FEED Bag courtesy of ISPA Platinum Sponsor ResortSuite, and proceeds for each bag supply 10 meals for the World Food Programme. The 27th annual ISPA Conference & Expo will be held at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 16–18, 2017.

In addition to the meals it provided, FEED donated $5 for every purchase during the month of September to hurricane relief efforts through its local giving partner, Feeding America. Feeding America is working around the clock to help those devastated in Florida, Texas, and Puerto Rico.

“We are honored to partner with FEED and ResortSuite to provide meals to children around the world,” says ISPA President Lynne McNees. “FEED’s mission is a valuable contribution that we are grateful to share with our industry. We are proud to work with ResortSuite, a longtime supporter of ISPA and the spa community.”
