Bestselling author and entrepreneur Dan Heath has been announced as the opening Power Session keynote speaker for The International Spa Association’s (ISPA) 2022 Conference.

Hosted between 2 - 4 May, the 2022 event at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas will mark ISPA’s first in-person event since 2019.

The conference agenda will feature a speaker line-up, panels and education sessions focusing on topics such as business strategy, customer service and staff management. Attendees will also have access to an expo floor filled with industry suppliers and partners.

Heath serves as a senior fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs who fight for social good.

In addition, he founded education company Thinkwell, has been recognised as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business and was named to the Thinkers 50, a ranking of the world’s 50 most influential management thinkers.

“Spa leaders are fierce and have proven to be extremely resilient during the pandemic,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees.

“Dan’s message will set the tone for the Conference and empower attendees to tackle the challenges they’re facing head-on with his innovative approach and inspirational energy.”

Heath is also the co-author of four New York Times best-selling books and last year, he released Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen, which explores why people become trapped in a cycle of reaction rather than dealing with a problem’s true source.

Additional keynote speakers will be announced at a later date.

Registration for the event is already open with an exclusive early bird rate for members starting at US$735 (€647, £545) and US$1,434 (€1,263, £1,063) for non-members. These discounted rates will last until 26 January 2022.
