The Global Spa Summit is an international organization that brings together leaders and visionaries to positively impact and shape the future of the global spa and wellness industry.
SUMMIT 2008 "ADVANCING THE GLOBAL SPA ECONOMY"
The 2008 Global Spa Summit built on the work which began at the 2007 inaugural gathering, where top concerns included an industry-wide labor shortage, the lack of agreed-upon benchmarking, and the need for environmental leadership. These issues surfaced once again, however delegates indicated that the labor shortage problem has escalated and the subject of low margins has supplanted benchmarking concerns which seem to have shown improvement.
