The vision for SpaFest is and has always been about creating sustainable change in wellness for a healthier world
– Amanda Winwood

Spa and wellness industry event SpaFest has announced industry legend Sue Harmsworth MBE will keynote its 2021 conference, hosted at five-star eco-resort, Gwel an Mor in Cornwall, UK, from 12-14 October.

Harmsworth founded established spa and wellness brand ESPA and will host a discussion focused on the trends and challenges facing the spa and wellness industry.

SpaFest focuses on people, planet and health, and will take on new meaning this year as every spa and wellness professional looks for new ways to reconnect, rebuild and re-energise their personal and professional wellbeing after a challenging year.

Founded by Amanda Winwood, founder of Made for Life Organics, SpaFest is a not-for-profit event to benefit the Made for Life Foundation, which supports people living with cancer.

This unique industry gathering, which welcomes all, is free from the formalities of business attire, name badges and organised selling.

“The vision for SpaFest is and has always been about creating sustainable change in wellness for a healthier world,” said Winwood.

“Meaningful conversations within the spa and wellbeing sector for both suppliers and operators, with no pressure to buy or sell, just to simply connect and be inspired.”

With empowering sessions, thought-provoking talks and the opportunity to truly connect, learn and grow, SpaFest offers a delicate balance of education, inspiration and social wellbeing activities.

This year’s speaker line-up includes Iain Bell, founder, Executive Fitness Foundation; Dr Neil Carpenter, founder, NMC2; Claudia Roth, founder, Soul Luxury; and Kay Pennington, group spa manager, Center Parcs Aqua Sana.

Attendees will also be treated to wellbeing workshops including gong baths, yoga, forest bathing and swimming.

Mental performance coach Jamie Edwards, founder of Trained Brain, will kick the event off with a leadership programme, focused on 'leading yourself and others beyond crisis', offering perfect empowerment for spa industry professionals.

More speakers and details will be announced soon.
