Leading professionals from the spa sector will meet in Bangkok later this year for the World Spa & Well-being Convention.
The event will take place from September 19th-21st and is organised by the Thai Spa Association, with sponsorship support from the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Thailand Exhibition and Convention Bureau.
The event is being billed the only gateway offering a myriad of opportunities to network, build business connections and be inspired with industry people across the region.
The gathering is expected to give yet another boost to the spa, health and wellness sector, one of the fastest-growing niche market segments of the Thai travel and tourism industry.
Attendance is projected at 3,000 trade visitors at the exhibition, 400 congress delegates and 5,000 members of the general public, including travel agents, spa consumers, hotel operators, spa operators, spa suppliers, spa therapists, developers, and investors.
Speakers at the congress will highlight Asian industry trends.
One of the main topics of discussion will focus on helping Thai spa operators and manufacturers to prepare for the ASEAN Economic Community 2015.
The Thai Spa Association was set up in 2003 and boasts roughly 450 spa businesses in Thailand and 15 countries around the globe.
