14th annual Forum HOTel&SPA to be hosted in June 2022 to inform and inspire the industry

I'm enthusiastic about organising this international event in the presence of so many well-known and respected experts from our sector
– Vladi Kovanic

Industry figure Vladi Kovanic has drawn on her diverse experience in the world of spa to create industry event Forum HOTel&SPA – an annual high-quality conference featuring international meetings for the spa and hospitality industry.

Marking the conference’s 14th anniversary, the 2022 event is scheduled to be hosted on 2 June 2022 at the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris.

The conference encourages delegates to discuss the future of spa, wellness and luxury and what growth opportunities each sector holds.

Kovanic says she was inspired to launch the event to bring together industry suppliers and businesses in an opulent setting to provide the opportunity for discussions and knowledge-sharing sessions on the best present and future practices.

This year’s theme ‘Thinking outside the box’ has inspired an exciting agenda and speaker line-up including international experts; Roger Allen, CEO Resources for Leisure Assets; Dr Franz Linser CEO of Linser Hospitality Austria; and Tammy Pahel, general manager and vice-president of Spa USA and wellness director at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort.

As in previous years, a highlight of the event will be the Black Diamond and Blue Diamond Awards ceremony to honour and celebrate a leading spa manager and talented figure in the thalassotherapy sector.

Established wellness companies such as Gharieni, Biologique Recherche, RKF, Johnson Matrix, Sommerhuber and many others will also be in attendance.

Kovanic says: "I'm enthusiastic about organising this international event in the presence of so many well-known and respected experts from our sector.

“Professionals from around the world come back again and again for the mix of innovation, trend analysis, expertise and networking, and for the opportunities that fuel their business for the upcoming year and beyond."
