This is the place where new innovations, equipment, services and products come to life in one area. Visitors to The Spa Zone will have the opportunity to experience how the various elements of a spa work together. It is designed to create the ‘chilled-out’ ambience associated with relaxation areas and attendees will witness how a total spa solution can be provided by exhibitors at the show.
Operators searching for new skincare solutions can visit the Skincare Oasis, a central area for professional skincare companies to demonstrate their products for the spa market. This dedicated section has been designed to allow visitors to discuss business requirements in a relaxed environment.
Key speakers will be leading the conference programme on all aspects of the spa industry, and the exhibition presents spa specific suppliers that specialise in the services and equipment needed to construct and operate a spa. These include; Dale Sauna, featuring its saunas, steam rooms, spa pools and aromatherapy rooms. ActiveWise, with dry floats, hot rooms and hydrotherapy pools.

Most of the major sunbed suppliers will also be at Olympia, as will the skincare houses, many launching new collections at the show.
