SpaFinderwill kick-off its second season of Spa Finder Partner Retreats at Miraval Life In Balance, in Tucson, Arizona, Sunday, May 18th through Wednesday, May 21st. Day spa operators network and share ideas with their peers while experiencing a destination spa experience. "These outings are designed for spa management professionals to get together to enjoy a destination spa experience, network with one another, and attend optional education sessions, says SpaFinder's VP of Industry Development Susie Ellis. "Our retreats are open to day spa, resort spa, destination spa, and medical spa management personnel."

The Spa Finder Partner retreats have been known to drum up significant networking opportunities for participants. Joyce Dillon, owner of Inward Bound Wellness Center in Atlanta, has partnered with the well-known New York Spa Oasis on Park to offer specialty wellness services. Dillon met Oasis co-owner Marty Shoenburg and marketing director Lisa West at the Spa Finder Partner Retreat at New Age Health Spa last September. "Miraval will be my third Spa Finder Partner Retreat," says. Dillon. "The retreats are a great opportunity to rejuvenate while getting to know people with similar business issues."

Nancy Griffin from Spa Trade will be heading up the education, and will generously provide for each attendee a complimentary copy of her new report "Paths to Profitability," a $75 value. The cost for double occupancy is $330 per night per person, which includes a spa treatment valued at $95. This price includes all meals and snacks plus hiking, fitness classes, and mindfulness classes.
