This beautiful, spa rich country offers a huge array of modern spas and luxury hotels providing the perfect place for health and wellness holidays. itSpa is situated in the ICEC Lutfi Kirdar, located in the heart of Istanbul’s business and cultural centre.
The ItSpa exhibition will take place over three days in Istanbul at the ICEC Lutfi Kirdar, 19th – 21st February 2012 and addresses the needs of this growing spa and wellness travel market at a global level through focused pre-scheduled appointments applying a one-to-one buyer-to-supplier matched ratio. Every travel buyer and exhibiting company will have a diary of pre-scheduled appointments created through a computer matched preference system using mutual, buyer and exhibitor led requests placed before the event.
ItSpa delivers a platform that will help hotel Sales and Spa Directors increase the financial performance of both rooms and spa/wellness packages.
Founder and creator Richard Joslin identified the need to develop a concept that would bring the finest spa hotels and wellness retreats together with the world’s most active spa and wellness travel buyers to do business; “I am very excited about the launch of ItSpa as it has been my passion to create an exhibition for this sector. ItSpa will help hotels to increase their ROI beyond just the sale of a bedroom and for buyers this is extremely attractive as they can develop new and exciting packages for clients.” ItSpa is the result of Richard’s years spent working on and managing some of the world’s leading international travel trade exhibitions, allowing him to work with and learn from leading travel industry professionals. “ItSpa has been created as a result of the increasing demand in spa and wellness travel and a continued absence of a dedicated and focused event that brings together specialist leisure and incentive travel buyers with the world’s finest and most authentic spa and wellness experiences.”
The event provides buyers and suppliers with greater awareness and market navigation, developing knowledge, contact and expertise through the forum, professional seminars and comprehensive networking program.
