The International Spa Association (ISPA) recognizes leaders in the spa industry through the annual ISPA Innovate Awards. Recipients were recognized earlier this month at the 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The awards and expo celebrated ISPA members’ creative solutions. There were nearly 60 submissions this year, the most since the inception of the award. Winners are determined by votes from ISPA members. New this year, the ISPA Innovation of the Year Award. 

“Innovation is the driving force behind growth in the spa industry,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees. “We are honored to recognize the innovation that is occurring within the spa community, as it will encourage and inspire future big ideas.”

Here are this year’s ISPA Innovate Award winners by category:
