Spa industry experts meet in Dubai



The spa industry in Dubai driven by the fast paced life style in Dubai & the high growth tourism industry, Dubai is further drawn into limelight with an anti-ageing & aesthetic medcine conference.

The global spa economy estimated to be over $250 billion, according to a recent report published at the 2008 Global Spa Summit in New York.

"Traditional spa services are a staple cornerstone of this lucrative market," says Durocher. "Two of the strongest front runners in the explosive growth are the advance of the Medi Spa and the movement towards integrative wellness treating the mind, body and spirit."

Medical spas offer a range of therapies under the supervision of trained medical personnel but in the surroundings of a relaxing spa environment.

The medical spa industry in the US saw sales exceed $1billion in 2006, a significant increase from $450 million in 2004.

More than 70 international experts will gather in Dubai on November 7-9 at the Dubai World Trade Centre to present the latest scientific research, at the premiere Dubai Congress on Anti-Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine.

The event is being organised by Tarsus and The American Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine (A4M).

Similar events have already been held at venues, including in Las Vegas, Singapore, Tokyo, Germany, China and Mumbai.

As part of the American Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine (A4M) event, the special workshop, "Medical Spa: Combining the Traditional Spa with the Medical Clinic", will take place on November 7, and will cover all aspects from concepts and design, to hiring the right team as well as how to manage and market the spa and incorporating retail strategies that will produce revenue.
