The third edition of SPATEC Middle East will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal on September 20– 23. Organised by Questex-McLean Events, SPATEC is an appointments-based event focused on the spa, wellness and beauty industry. SPATEC brings domestic, regional and international suppliers together with hosted buyers for three days of meetings and networking. SPATEC offers participants the opportunity to connect with their peers and potential clients to talk business in both formal and informal situations.
Close to 80 delegates are expected at this year’s event, with the buyers list including corporate spa directors from some of the region’s major hotel chains as well as day spas and health clubs. Suppliers include leading international brands of skincare products, spa and fitness equipment, linen and software companies.
Participating delegates are hosted in the venue hotel, and the three-day programme kicks off with an ice-breaking welcome dinner reception on the opening night. The following morning, the first of two days of meetings, is preceded by a brief educational session. This year’s guest speaker is business psychologist and spa owner Neil Orvay.
Meetings at SPATEC are one-to-one, by appointment. Ahead of the event, suppliers select the buyers that they wish to meet with and buyers similarly choose the suppliers that they would like an appointment with. Personalised meeting schedules are prepared based on the indicated preferences. Meetings are held in a large hall, and each meeting lasts 20 minutes of uninterrupted time.
