Nominees for Thai spas and wellness awards

 Thai spa awards

VOTING IS UNDERWAY to select winners for the third annual Thailand Spa & Well-Being Awards ceremony at this year’s black tie, invitation-only awards night dinner on Sept. 19.

Since being launched in 2012, the number of nominees has been growing annually and now tops 110 for the nine People’s Choice and for the nine Industry categories.

“It has been especially rewarding to see so many new faces amongst the nominees in both industry and People’s Choice categories, but ultimately it all comes down to the total number of votes as to who will win,” said Andrew Jacka, president of the Thai Spa Association.

As in past years, the voting will be supervised by KPMG Phoomchai Audit Co. Ltd., with the results known only to them until the seal is broken and the winners announced on the awards night.

The Exhibition category will be voted on Sept. 18 by exhibitors at WSWC2014.
