The Professional Beauty Group will host a free, 3-day online World Spa & Wellness Conference from 12 to 14 May.
Themed ‘Get Ready to Reset and Reopen’, this global event will involve participation from all of the Professional Beauty Group’s regional offices – namely the UK, South Africa, Dubai and India – and will give the spa industry the opportunity to discover insights and answers. Webinars will be presented by leading senior spa executives, consultants and experts from around the world, all preparing to kick start their businesses post COVID-19 lockdown. The aim is to make the webinar sessions as interactive as possible, so questions from delegates are encouraged.
By registering for the conference in advance, you will be notified when each webinar is available for you to reserve your place, as spaces are limited. The webinars will also be streamed live to our Facebook page, however only those participating in the Zoom webinar will be able to ask questions.
