SPA+CLINIC is proud to be the exclusive Australian media partner for ‘Hall of Wellness Awards’, the brand new awards recognising exceptional individuals in the global spa, beauty and wellness industry.
Spa Connectors, a global company offering business, training and recruitment solutions to the spa industry (specialising in 5-star hotels, resorts, stand-alone spas and wellness concepts) is driving a movement to reward talent in the community on a global scale by launching The Hall of Wellness Awards 2020. Passionate about nurturing talent in their own unique ways within spas, salons and wellness facilities worldwide, Spa Connectors aims to bring these businesses together on a global stage by launching awards where an industry divided by borders will be united in their passion and commitment to their expertise, celebrating all individuals in a virtual awards ceremony that is inclusive of the industry across all levels.
The Hall of Wellness Awards not only recognises extraordinary individuals, but also looks to elevate the industry as a whole. The awards have been designed to give back to the people that make up the industry, as well as driving a stimulus within the industry’s training sector. A dedicated scholarship fund has also been established as part of the HOW Awards, derived from award sponsorships, and will play a huge role in upskilling anyone deserving of it – from therapists to managers.
The awards will take place on the 4th December 2020, with nominations open now until September 30,2020. A carefully selected panel of stellar industry experts has been curated to judge all submissions, including Emma McGrady; Director of Crown Spas, Georgia Sutherland; Owner of Spa Alliance and Glo Day Spa, Vanessa Main; Director at The Lift Studio, and Sharon Kolkka; General Manager at Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat – just to name a few. Nominations can be self or peer nominated, and entrants will then embark on a stringent judging process to help unearth the industry’s best.
