January Kick Off Event at Epcot Was Out of This World!
With a theme of “Around the World with FSA”, January’s Kick Off event was at the very least, out of the box, and more like out of this world!!
Set in Disney’s Epcot Center, the perfect backdrop for our global theme, attendees had the opportunity to visit our 23 extraordinary exhibiting vendors. First-rate treatments were provided for luxurious spa experiences. Deluxe travel bags with a variety of products, goodies and samples were generously handed out by Vendors.
Over 110 guests attended, representing some of the best spas in Florida, and the turnout was BIG
The day began with the vendor exhibit and treatments. During a delicious healthy lunch of a healthy salad bar, sandwiches, soups and no-sugar-added lemon crinkle cookies. Maureen Vipperman from The Opal Collection delivered an educational presentation on Global Spa Trends for 2016 which gave us something to think about when it comes to what consumers can expect in the future.
Post lunch, discussion round tables were set up addressing the 5 interesting topics that address spa issues. After a celebratory cocktail, attendees ventured into the Epcot Theme Park to visit each country’s exhibit and tour the world. Everyone met up at the British Pub in the UK for the best fish and chips this side of the pond, draft beer, wine and lots of laughs. After the always-impressive Epcot fireworks, everyone headed home, exhilarated from a full day of networking, learning, and inspired for the year to come. Everyone was blissfully on Top of the World!
