As day, hotel and medical spa owners and managers navigate through these uncertain economic times, this perspective will help them see the big picture and adjust prices and services to manage their properties successfully.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
The Global Spa Summit (GSS), an annual conference that gathers top spa and wellness industry executives from all over the world, has chosen the independent research company Intelligent Spas as the Premier Research Partner for the 3rd annual Global Spa Summit to be held in May. They will assemble the first Global Spa Benchmark Report featuring comparable key performance indicators for major spa and wellness markets across the world.
This comprehensive statistical report will be given to the GSS's attending delegates and include vital spa statistics covering revenue, expenses, visitors and employees, in addition to important benchmark ratios such as average treatment spend, treatment room occupancy, therapist productivity, and hotel/resort guest capture rates. Comparable global, regional, and country-level benchmarks will be presented to illustrate differences in performance levels by market.
Intelligent Spas will develop this custom report based on research collected during its Global Spa Benchmark Program, which is currently underway in over 60 countries. To participate in this free program, spa owners are encouraged to register at http://www.IntelligentSpas.com and submit their own data.
"This in-depth study by Intelligent Spas will provide delegates with a first look at the most reliable, up-to-date benchmarks available on the global spa and wellness industry," stated Pete Ellis, Chairman of the Global Spa Summit Board of Directors. "As day, hotel and medical spa owners and managers navigate through these uncertain economic times, this perspective will help them see the big picture and adjust prices and services to manage their properties successfully."
Intelligent Spas holds the largest collection of global spa industry intelligence in the world after conducting comprehensive spa research over the last eight years.

The Global Spa Summit has quickly emerged as the premier event for spa industry leaders. In fact, it has been called "nothing short of a phenomenon" by Deborah Szekely, founder of the renowned Golden Door & Rancho La Puerta destination spas. The 2008 GSS included more than 220 industry leaders from all continents, and featured keynote speeches from hotelier Ian Schrager and Dr. Richard Carmona, 17th Surgeon General of the United States and Vice Chairman of Canyon Ranch. Steve Case, founder of AOL and Revolution, LLC, joined the delegation in 2007 as the keynote presenter.
Delegate registration is now open at http://www.globalspasummit.org.
