Questex begins countdown for Spatec Europe in Portugal this September

Questex’s Spatec Europe – premium hosted buyer event for the spa and wellness industry – is scheduled to take place 20-23 September at the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort, in Portugal.

Spatec Europe brings together Europe’s most important spa operators from leading medium-to-large hotel resort, destination, athletic, medical and day spas to meet with global suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings over two dedicated business days.

Throughout the event, suppliers meet spa owners and operators during meals and other planned networking activities. This fosters communication and cross-sharing of ideas, best practices, and future business relationships.

Jill Birkett, VP of Questex Wellness and event organiser, said: “Bringing the European spa and wellness industry together to discuss common challenges, get unique insights about the industry’s future and build and foster relationships in an environment conducive to business decisions is what Spatec Europe is all about.

“With unlimited networking opportunities – including a minimum of 16 one-to-one appointments, activities and receptions – the ROI suppliers will generate, and the experience buyers will experience is unparalleled.

“We’re fearing up to host a fantastic event for the industry.”

Here’s what attendees had to say about Spatec Europe:

• “Spatec is a ‘must’ for both suppliers and buyers to keep informed and ahead of the latest products and technologies. It’s the perfect networking opportunity to meet colleagues and ‘talk shop’ in a beautiful 5* hotel setting,” said Mary Bell, UR Beautiful.• “The organisation of the event, venue, activity schedule and exceptional support of the Spatec team makes the commitment to attend an easy decision to make when building the annual work calendar. Spatec is a must for all serious buyers and operators – no other event comes anywhere close to what they’re able to deliver,” said Lisa Barden, BARDEN SPA Ltd and vice-chair of the UKSA.

• “I think this is the best working event of the spa calendar, always great buyers and suppliers, well run and great fun!,” said Sara Last, Aromatherapy Associates.
