San Diego Spa Association Launch Attended by over 100 Local Spa Professionals

San Diego Spa Professionals recently had great reason to celebrate — the launch of their very own local Spa Association dedicated to networking, education and charitable action through community involvement!

Attendees of the San Diego Spa Association gala enjoyed delicious appetizers, drinks and a DJ as they mingled with their local peers at the swanky W Hotel in Downtown San Diego on June 18th, 2009 .

Generous swag bags given to each attendee included full size items donated by Skin Authority, Innovative Body Science, Spa Finder, Epicuren and BlueRev. Amazing raffles prizes included gifts such as Hard Rock Hotel, La Costa Resort and Spa, Spa Finder Gift Certificates, Aromatherapy Associates products and ISPA Educational Tools.

Milana Knowles, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Spa Finder Inc. New York attended specifically to show Spa Finder's support and enthusiasm for the new association as well as to share about Spa Finder's Melanoma Initiative. "It was an incredible evening and the room was filled with energy. It was truly wonderful to see the people who make San Diego America's finest spa market join together and use the power of collaboration to expand the tradition of innovation and excellence that San Diego spas have been known for during the last 40 years"

Dana Stallings, San Diego Spa Association Founder, enthuses 'It was thrilling to see how energized everyone was to have this finally happen at a local level! Bringing together that type of synergy and passion is incredibly powerful! Especially in light of our economic times, the desire to share information that is relevant to us locally and to support and encourage each other is palpable".
