The 19th Congress of the European Spas Association (ESPA) under the title The Spa Experiences Expansion was held from May 20 to 23, 2014, in Vejle (Denmark).
As declared by the organizer, "The Congress attendees shared their knowledge and ideas, inspiring each other. The program was well balanced between theoretical knowledge and practical information and experiences. This is a meeting point for the accession accomplishment for future cooperations all over Europe and this year’s Grand Finale featured a wide range of opportunities for international innovation projects and financing within the EU".
Since the Congress, accompanied by the workshop related to marketing strategies, was held in Denmark, the attendees could find out also the Nordic Wellness trends, where nature traditionally plays an important role.
The 20th Congress of the European Spas Association (ESPA) will be held next year on May 19 – 21, in Sopot, Poland.
