The spa market continues to experience sluggish growth, but with over 19,000 spas in the U.S., there is potential for companies to create a presence in this important segment. In an effort to help companies create their presence, Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) is presenting the “Spa Sector—How to Build Synergies & Grow Spa Distribution” session as part of its 2013 educational panel lineup. This panel will focus on how various players in the spa marketplace can work together to build a significant presence in this channel. Spa and skin care experts will discuss ways they have successfully helped one another and other small companies grow to relevant volume. The panelists will represent a large spa chain, the leading distributor to spas, and one of the leading spa and salon product brands.
The session will be held on Monday, July 15 from 2 pm to 3:30 pm and will be moderated by Ada Polla, president and CEO of < a href="http://www.alchimie-forever.com" target="_blank">Alchimie Forever and GCI magazine editorial advisory board member. Polla will be joined by Ryan Crabbe, senior director of spa operations and development for Hilton Worldwide; Teddy Lester, vice president of sales for Universal Companies; and Tracey Sameyah, general manager of Dermalogica.
Cosmoprof North America will take place July 14–16, 2013, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
