European Spa Convention and World Spa Awards rebrand under one umbrella


The World Spa Awards, which recognises the care and excellence of spas and their owners and the European Spa Convention, which attracts hundreds of international spa professionals for the networking conference event of the year have been brought together under one brand – together with a new online spa magazine.
The convention has given a great platform to spa owners and senior managers, enabling them to share their experiences of operating a successful spa in the hope of bettering others. This convention also runs alongside a dedicated spa exhibition at Professional Beauty, the UK’s largest trade show for the beauty industry, demonstrating how prominent and respected this convention really is. 
The merging of these two brands, now known as the World Spa & Wellness Awards and the Professional Spa & Wellness Convention, will produce even greater success within the spa industry. Both of these events will now work hand in hand to better spa quality and inspire spa professionals to improve their spa standards.  This really is a great partnership that will help the spa industry flourish to its fullest potential.
On another exciting note, to tie these two events together and launching at the end of October is Professional Spa & Wellness, an exclusively digital publication for the global spa and wellness industry. Targeted at senior management, the monthly magazine will have an initial circulation of 11,000 and will be emailed directly to spa owners, managers and directors worldwide. With an online distribution covering the UK, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australasia, the publication is set to strengthen Professional Beauty’s presence in the international spa marketplace.
Already the UK’s leading beauty industry publisher, the launch of Professional Spa & Wellness will expand on the company’s role within the professional spa field. The new title will also contribute to the increased presence of top-level spa industry speakers and attendees at the many shows and conferences organised annually by the company. Packed with intelligent, informative and in-depth news and features covering the most topical issues across the diverse spa industry spectrum, the monthly title will be complemented by a website, updated daily, and a fortnightly newsletter.
