They are “choosey” about who they invite for the deal of the day. You must be a reputable business and I am honored my business was chosen.

Beauty CEO Summit Provides Spa Growth Strategies

WWD's Beauty CEO Summit provides a platform for industry leaders to collaborate, and visionary spa directors will recognize relevant strategies for the spa industry.
May is the month that climbers scale Mt. Everest, so I’m guessing that’s why spring is full of “Summits.” Last month, in addition to the Global Spa Summit, was 8 th edition of the Women’s Wear Daily Beauty CEO Summit.
