The UK Spa Association has hosted its first ‘virtual conference’ during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the Spa Directors Assemblies educating attendees on the impact of the outbreak and how to plan for the future.
Spa managers from the likes of Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall & Fistral Beach, The Scarlett, Calcot Manor, and The Dorchester, plus many more, came together online to share best practice surrounding the coronavirus impact and how to cope during the lockdown.
The next session is to take place on Monday 13 April.
As a result of the success, the UK Spa Association is to launch a new Spa Supplier Assembly today, targeting any suppliers to the spa, leisure and wellness industries.
The UKSA is also supporting the sector through its Spa Line Online.
This dedicated platform which can be accessed via the UKSA website, offers a one-stop-shop of vital direct links from industry to financial information.
Also featuring on the site, are details of the self-employment Income Support Scheme and downloadable resources for its members, to help keep mental health in check, with suggestions as to upskill during this enforced downtime.
The UKSA founded during 2013 is the official not-for-profit trade body for the nation’s 8,000 spas and salons.
