Black Tie Thai Spa Awards Night in September

TRIA Integrative Wellness in Bangkok

ON SEPT. 20, 2012, the Thai Spa Association will be holding the first Thailand Spa Awards Night, a black tie event that will include awards in 20 categories.

Entries will be voted on by event exhibitors, spa operators, consumers and the Thai Spa Association Board. Event exhibitors will have one vote; spa operators, 10 votes; consumers, eight; and the Thai Association Board, one vote.

Andrew Jacka, president of the Thai Spa Association, said that the awards would be audited by KPMG Poomchair Audit Ltd.

Andrew also reported that the Thai Spa Association would be marking its 10th anniversary next year and that plans were well advanced for celebrations in February/March 2013.

In 2011, the association was active in more than 40 events, activities and projects to promote the industry, locally and internationally. These included participation in the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion and taking 20 Thai spa companies to Hong Kong for the Natural Products Expo Asia 2011, Business Matching and Spa Study Tour.

Under this project, the association conducted five seminars in Bangkok, with subjects as diverse as packing design, intellectual property rights and international marketing. More than 400 people either participated in or benefited from these activities.

Four Thai spas were winners in the 2011 Asia Spa Awards:

MediSpa of the Year – Tria Integrative Wellness, Bangkok.

Spa Design of the Year – Coqoon Spa, Indigo Pearl, Phuket.

Spa Retreat of the year and Spa Cuisine of the Year – Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa, Koh Samui.
