Aspen Spa Day, The first-ever spa event open to the public


New York, NY (April 10, 2007) − Whether you are a spa enthusiast or intend to become one, you’ll want to be in Aspen on July 28th for Aspen Spa Day, the first-ever event offering the public an opportunity to experience everything the spa lifestyle has to offer.

Presented by Spa Finder, the world’s largest spa media and marketing company, the inaugural Aspen Spa Day will provide Aspen visitors and residents an exciting chance to immerse themselves in the pleasures and benefits of the spa lifestyle.

The event will showcase interactive exhibits and demonstrations, mini spa and beauty treatments, exclusive sweepstakes and spa getaway offers, and gourmet spa cuisine from the industry’s top chefs.

Taking place in a tented "spa" pavilion in Aspen Town Center, Aspen Spa Day will allow guests to experience the world’s finest spas - from Thailand’s Chiva-Som to Anguilla’s CuisinArt Resort & Spa to New York’s Mandarin Oriental. Other spa exhibitors include Utah’s Green Valley Spa, Hyatt Pure Spas, and Vail Mountain Lodge.

"There is really no better way to appreciate what the spa lifestyle is all about than to actually feel the massage, taste the cuisine, and experience the treatment," said Sallie Fraenkel, Chief Operating Officer of Spa Finder, Inc. "Our goal is for everyone to leave refreshed and inspired to embrace the world-class spas and products showcased at Aspen Spa Day."

Guests will also be able to test and sample products from leading luxury lifestyle companies, including title sponsors Bare Escentuals and Cliffs Communities, and exhibitors such as Anne Cole Swimwear, Creative Nail Design, Kama Ayurveda, Kerstin Florian, Mexico Tourism Board, Pevonia Botanica, and Sothys Paris. A full list of sponsor and exhibitors can be found at www.aspenspaday.com/exhibitorlist

Another major highlight of the event will be the Spa Café, which will feature signature dishes from five award-winning chefs aligned with the world’s top-rated spas, including Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa, Montage Resort & Spa, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, Mandarin Oriental New York, and Chiva-Som.

The five chefs will also be honored the night before at The Healthy Gourmet Fest, an event presented by The Aspen Center for Integral Health, which is also a local sponsor of Aspen Spa Day. In addition, Aspen Magazine will serve as local media sponsor for Aspen Spa Day.
