SpaFest is a small, intimate, not for profit conference (100 delegates max) event that cares about People, Planet and Health.

Building on the incredible success of SpaFest 2021, the event will be once again returning to Gwel an Mor, Portreath to welcome 100 industry leaders from the Spa and Wellness sector across the UK and Europe. Supported and sponsored by European Spa magazine, the purpose of SpaFest is to look at the integration of People, Planet and Purpose. We share views and thoughts and have heartfelt discussions on the latest wellness trends, leadership and how to integrate sustainable strategies into business.

Last year’s SpaFest was a sell-out and we are expecting 2022 to sell out soon too. At the time of writing, we have over 30 advance bookings with two of the sponsorship opportunities taken. SpaFest has always been about looking at the integrative and purposeful role of wellbeing for the benefit of people, planet and health. During SpaFest everyone gets to enjoy a unique opportunity to ditch all of the badges, labels and sales chats that are the norm at other events in order to just connect with people, talk and connect with nature and simply appreciate your time together.

Sometimes we must turn down applications if our numbers have reached their optimum levels in one of these areas. We hope you understand.
