In the lead up to ILTM Spa 2014, organiser Reed Travel Exhibitions has revealed the results of research undertaken among its network of luxury wellness holidays, world renowned spas and specialist spa and wellness buyers.

Spas across Asia continue to be of great interest to the spa buyers attending ILTM Spa with 61% looking to meet with spas from Southern Asia, 50% from South East Asia and 44% from Central Asia.  A further 23% were looking to review spa destinations in Europe, 14% in Africa and 15% from across the Americas.

“Returning exhibitors predict a five to one return on investment”

ILTM Spa, London: 29 Sept – 1 Oct 2014



Over 95% of discerning spa buyers who attended ILTM 2013 were looking to place business within one year of meeting new suppliers at ILTM Spa; 95% also commented that the event delivered the right type of supplier for their clients.  Hand selected and fully hosted by ILTM from 20 countries within both established and emerging markets, these spa specialists attended to source new products and services from across the world (95%), find new suppliers (95%) and look for inspiration and to see what’s new (80%). 

In addition, 78% of participating destination and hotel spas expected to confirm orders of values ranging between US $8,500 and US $85,000 within one year of the 2013 show and a significant number are returning to this year’s event.

Gabriel Donida of Germany’s Atelier Voyage comments:

ILTM Spa continues to offer my team the opportunity to explore the world of wellness and expand our services to meet their varying needs accordingly.  At the last two ILTM Spa events, we have met and are now working with several core partners including Kamalaya, Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, Terre Blanche, Como Hotels, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz and La Réserve to name but a few and our clients are delighted. We look forward to building our repertoire still further at this year’s ILTM Spa.”

David Paterson, Exhibition Manager, ILTM Spa adds:

“The ‘invitation-only’ structure of ILTM is testament to its ongoing success.  The pre-scheduled appointments between dedicated spa suppliers and specialised buyers at ILTM Spa establish important partnerships and create valuable new business.  We look forward to supporting the further growth of the escalating international spa business community at ILTM Spa 2014 in London this year.”
