Ispa and Cosmprof to partner up

A partnership has been announced between leading industry organisations the International Spa Association (Ispa) and Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.

To kick off the collaboration, US-based Ispa will host a two-day Spa Forum on March 17-18 next year, as part of Cosmoprof 2017, which takes place in Bologna, Italy.

The partnership will also include other initiatives, as not yet disclosed, further down the line. Ispa chairman Todd Shaw said of the new agreement:

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with the prestigious Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna group as we continue to provide education that supports Ispa’s global membership.”

Established in 1991, Ispa represents spa and wellness industry operators in more than 70 countries around the world, annually organising the Ispa Conference & Expo In Las Vegas.

Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna is one of the world’s leading events for the beauty, spa, cosmetics and wellness sectors.

The event, which last year attracted 250,000 visitors from around the world, covers beauty, spa, hair, nails, cosmetics and perfumery, among other areas.
