Spatec is a hosted buyer event... the leading hosted buyer event in our industry!
What is a hosted buyer event?
It's a retreat where buyers meet face-to-face, one-to-one, with industry suppliers. The event hosts, or pays for the buyers to attend, and provides a VIP experience. Here's how it works:
Spatec meticulously curates a group of suppliers from around the world, representing everything a spa owner, operator, director, manager or other decision-maker might need for an expansion, renovation or upgrade project, and for distribution needs. This includes companies that supply equipment, skin and body care products, furnishings, technology and business services, retail, linens and uniforms, cosmetics and more.
When you attend the event as a hosted buyer, you have the opportunity to meet with at least 16 suppliers. You can use the appointment to learn more, place orders, or start a productive, potentially long-term, working relationship.
Outside of appointments, Spatec offers a full agenda of luxurious entertainment and activities. By participating, you continue to network and build relationships with all attending buyers.
Is Spatec a tradeshow?
No. Spatec is a carefully curated opportunity to meet with companies you are matched with to discuss current projects. Instead of visiting booths, you will meet one-to-one with a selection of about 16 suppliers that offer products/services that you believe will suit your business needs. You can use the focused time to explore new opportunities in a focused environment.
