Unique and emerging green brands that are not saturated in the market place are launched at our event, providing a fresh mix of suppliers. Their intention is to provide access to a wider range of eco-friendly and sustainable products, thus making it easier for spas to make better choices without compromising smart business.  Attendees will also enjoy an exciting and experiential private tour of one of the most innovative wellness boutique spaces to gain inspiration and education on curating a unique and effective spa retail space.  Our evening at the boutique will consist of cocktails and wellness activation stations including Reiki, Palm Reading, Intuitive Readings, Crystal Face Massage, Reflexology, Tarot and more followed by a catered vegan dinner in the shop.
