Spa Life expands to Ireland

06 Dec 2016
Industry tradeshow and conference Spa Life will host a two-day event in Ireland in 2017 – marking the third country for the event.

Set to take place 19-20 June, 2017 in Dublin, Spa Life Ireland follows the original Spa Life UK – which has been attracting more than 500 spa professionals in its seven-year history – and Spa Life Germany, which debuted last year in Bad Orb.

“Our unique combination of comprehensive educational opportunities and face-to-face meetings has proven to be a very successful formula,” said Andrew Hammond, event director and co-founder. “Spa Life represents a great way to do business, and following a soft-launch in Germany this year, we're confident that we'll double the number of attendees at this event in June 2017 and also deliver a successful inaugural event in Ireland.”

Hammond said that Ireland is a market with huge untapped potential, and the event has already secured the endorsement of the Irish Government through Failte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority.

He continued: “Thanks to the support of Failte Ireland, we were able to spend time touring numerous facilities and have been impressed with the range and quality of the spa venues available as well as the enthusiasm of the spa community in Ireland for a dedicated spa focussed event. Many of our international suppliers are keen to support the expansion of Spa Life International in Ireland so the future looks bright.”

Spa Life Germany will take place again this year in Bad Orb on 9-10 May, and Spa Life UK continues its November timeframe, with dates set for 14-15 November in Telford.
