[T]his week, Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa in Cumbria hosted one of the biggest spa events of the year, the UK Spa Association Spring Networking Event.
The UK spa industry headed to The Lake District in full force with over 100 of the UK’s top spa professionals, including owners, suppliers and consultants, attending a full day of networking event. As one of the nation’s leading, multi-award winning spas achieving the prestigious ‘5 Bubbles’ in the Good Spa Guide, Armathwaite Hall made the ideal location for hosting such a prestigious event.
Following a welcome talk from Armathwaite Hall’s General Manager Simon Steele, networking amongst spa industry insiders took place alongside two inspiring talks.
This included a discussion on ‘Dementia in Spa’ from Danielle Alen, General Manager of The Lifehouse Spa in Essex, which covered the specific needs of guests with dementia, and ‘The Alternative Kitchen’ from renowned food and beverage consultant Stu Henshall which highlighted the role of plant-based menus and the growing demand for vegetarian and vegan options in hotels and spas.
The conference area showcased stands from the event sponsors including: Gerrard International, Germaine du Capuccini and Scrummi Spa. Armathwaite Hall’s own spa product partners also exhibited, including Temple Spa, Delilah cosmetics, CND/Sweet Squared and Bespoke Armathwaite, Armathwaite Hall’s own brand product, created exclusively for use at the luxury spa.
Throughout the event, the Armathwaite team were delighted to offer tours of the hotel and spa facilities to guests, before guests departed with a much-coveted spa goody bag and plenty of inspiration to take back with them.
Carolyn Graves, owner of Armathwaite Hall adds, “We were extremely honoured to be hosting such a prestigious event here at Armathwaite Hall. To have so many leading spa professionals here was inspiring for all of us, and we were thrilled to be able to show others in the industry our beautiful spa and all the developments we’ve been working on.”
