The Global Spa & Wellness Summit (GSWS) and research body SRI International have announced that they are once again collaborating on research to gather international spa industry data.
Collaborating on the Global Spa Economy study in 2008, the GSWS and SRI International are currently in the process of updating the 2008 figures – to provide a look at the state of the global spa and wellness industry in 2014.
The two organisations are encouraging spa and wellness professionals around the world to complete the 10-minute survey that provides the basis for the research. The questionnaire divides business into seven categories:
- Spa – single location
- Spa – multiple locations
- Spa and wellness consulting and training
- Spa and wellness-related products, equipment, and supplies
- Spa and wellness media and promotion
- Spa and wellness associations and organisations
- Spa management education institutions
Data from the completed survey will include information about the number of spas in different regions around the world, global industry growth rates and the wider economic impact of the growth of the spa and wellness sector.
