Spa Finder to Launch Experiential Spa Consumer Events in Aspen, CO and New York, NY in 2007


NEW YORK, NY (November 16, 2006) − Spa Finder, Inc., the global spa resource, has announced that it will host the spa industry’s first experiential spa consumer shows in 2007, providing unique opportunities for potential spa-goers to sample the world’s finest spas and the spa lifestyle in a live, interactive venue. Spa Finder’s initial show, "Aspen Spa Day," will be held on July 28th, 2007 in Aspen, CO. The second event, "The Spa Experience," will be held in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, from October 31st - November 3rd. Together, it is estimated that the two events will have potential exposure to millions of consumers.

"Our Spa Finder events will present the spa lifestyle at its finest - offering consumers a chance to feel a spa’s signature massage, for example, or taste the cuisine from a world-famous spa chef - to experience the best spas in the world, then make their spa-going decisions accordingly," said Spa Finder, Inc. CEO Pete Ellis. "Wineries have wine-tasting. Auto retailers have test drives. And now spas will finally have a way to attract new business by sharing the unique products, treatments and services they offer."

The Aspen event, held during the resort town’s high summer season, will highlight elite spas from around the world as well as the best spa beauty products, spa cuisine and more. The 4-day Grand Central Terminal event will showcase over 60 premier global spa travel destinations, with potential daily exposure to an estimated half million upscale suburban commuters. Both events will feature multiple treatment areas, interactive presentations, and demonstration stages, enabling visitors to sample spa therapies, skin/beauty products, spa cuisine, medical/wellness consultations, and other spa offerings.

Spa Finder will promote these consumer events via Spafinder.com, Luxury SpaFinder Magazine, an extensive spa consumer database as well as national media outlets - altogether reaching millions of spa consumers, who, in a recent independent survey, expressed a strong demand for an offering of this nature.
