UK hosts first consumer spa show

The Spa Show on 19 -20 November is the UK’s first consumer exhibition showcasing spa resorts and destinations, luxury travel providers, day spas, retreats, spa products and treatments.

The show is in association with Condé Nast Traveller magazine and is for travellers looking for a day spa in Berkshire, England or a luxury Thai retreat.

The two day event provides professional knowledge and advice, with specialist spa holiday operators, hotels and resorts, tourist organisations, luxury holiday providers, day spas and urban retreats, lifestyle brands and spa products, weekend and short haul spa breaks all on display.

The show is being sold as “the gateway to paradise,” and will allow people to see whether pampering or revitalising, hot-stones or T’ai Chi is for them.

Visitors can chat to experts, discuss the resorts and destinations with the representatives from the spas and relax with a complimentary treatment at London’s Olympia.


There will be a programme of seminars including talks on day spas versus two-week retreats and all the options in between, the different treatments available and the merits of the various destinations both at home and abroad.

Visitors will be able to experience a complimentary therapy in The Egg—a new concept in personal luxury in which you lay on a massage bed enjoying the benefits of aromatherapy under a star studded sky.

And male visitors can relax from the rigours of choosing a spa in the Men’s Lounge, where they will be able to ask advice on grooming products or simply read the magazines provided while watching sport on the plasma screens.

Sarah Miller, Editor of Conde Nast Traveller magazine, said “As a result of demand among the travelling public, the spa industry has become the fastest growing segment in the leisure market. We are delighted to be associated with a new venture that reflects our own commitment to bringing you the very best of the latest spa holidays and resorts”.

The show is open from 19 - 20 November 2005, 10am - 6pm.
