More than 100 participants from 25 countries worldwide attended the last Spameeting event in Morocco, where suppliers such as Clarins, Tylö, Thalgo, Gharieni, Leonor Greyl and Nohèm met with selected key buyers from Europe and North Africa.
Juliette Blanzy, director of Spameeting, explains the concept: “Spameeting – which is organised by Paris-based events company, Beyond Beauty – is an intensive two-day programme of business meetings and networking opportunities between buyers and suppliers.
“Spa project holders and distributors are carefully selected and attend the event in order to find new suppliers. It’s the only setting where you can find so many new and exclusive projects in the same place and where buyers give time and their undivided attention to the suppliers!
“Every edition – held in exceptional locations to add synergy – brings suppliers together with a new group of buyers and new projects, each with specific needs to provide great business opportunities.”
The Autumn 2013 edition of Spameeting will take place at the five-star Meydan Hotel in Dubai on 27-28 November and project representatives have been recruited from the Middle East, India and Russia.
Among those attending will be buyers from Sofitel Thalassa Sea & Spa, Four Seasons and Park Hyatt who are working on projects around the world – whether they’re new constructions, extensions or renovations.
At Spameeting Autumn 2013 they’ll be able to meet quality suppliers offering a wide range of the products and services associated with a project’s operation, management and organisation. Among these will be Happy Sauna, Edge Systems, Gharieni, Thalion, Téo Cabanel, Equipmed and RKF.
Beyond Beauty also organises Cosmeeting, a beauty brand showcase, the 11th edition of which will be taking place at Porte de Versailles, Paris, between 9-11 September 2013.
At the event, spa suppliers will have the opportunity to present their products and expertise to an international audience including buyers, distributors, importers, spa managers and institutes.
