American Spa is bringing back its popular Women in Wellness Leadership Conference twice in 2019. The first event will take place March 12, 2019, in New York City, and the second will take place on the West Coast in October 2019. The conferences will be designed for women in the wellness industry looking to develop their professional and personal leadership skills while networking with their peers. They will feature speakers who will address a variety of business topics, delving deeper into some themes addressed at the inaugural conference as well as even more targeted leadership, entrepreneurship, and business tracks.
“I’m beyond thrilled with how our first conference came together and inspired so many women—and men—who attended,” says Julie Keller Callaghan, editor-in-chief and publisher ofAmerican Spa and founder of the conference. “We did comprehensive post-event research, and we found that attendees loved the content and want even more extensive and meaningful programming that will give them the tools they need to succeed, whether it is in their current roles, their future endeavors, or their entrepreneurial aspirations. My team and I look forward to creating two even more memorable events in 2019.”
Tickets to each event are $400 per person (prices increase after Dec. 31 for the New York event and after June 30, 2019, for the West Coast event). Both conferences will follow a format that includes keynote speakers, breakout sessions, a networking lunch, and an end-of-day cocktail party with fun activities like a photo booth, mini spa treatments and experiences, and more. Attendees will also receive a gift bag with more than $300 worth of goodies, local hotel and spa discounts, and passes toIECSC New York for the March event ($60 value). Post-event, attendees will have access to a privateAmerican Spa InstituteeLearning course with videos, presentations, and more from the day.
