What the FSA accomplished in 2016 – This past year was an incredible year of growth and recognition for the FSA. Being regarded as the Best Spa Association dedicated to Florida with a 5-star review across the board is such an honor and astounding achievement for us. We are truly humbled by this acknowledgment. This past year was also the start of new initiatives such as our phone app to help promote our vendors, our monthly newsletter, “The Scoop”, our “Go-Getters” to help keep up with the many changes taking place in our spa world. Most of all, our events! We hit an all record high with our events, holding 6 events last year. Let us know which one was your favorite.
Starting in 2016 we opened with:
Around the World with FSA – Epcot Event 2016
Location: Walt Disney’s EPCOT Center – Lake Buena Vista, FL
Date: January 20, 2016
January Kick Off Event at Epcot Was Out of This World!
With a theme of “Around the World with FSA”, January’s Kick Off event was at the very least, out of the box, and more like out of this world!!
Set in Disney’s Epcot Center, the perfect backdrop for our global theme. Over 110 guests attended, representing some of the best spas in Florida, and the turnout was BIG and the event …………. a world of success! Everyone was exhilarated from a full day of networking, learning, and inspired for the year to come. Everyone was blissfully on Top of the World!
A Day in Paradise – Margaritaville 2016
Location: St. Somewhere Spa at Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort
Date: May 18, 2016
The Spring Event at Margaritaville was truly a day in Paradise!
Held at the Jimmy Buffet inspired resort, the notorious Margaritaville event was a perfect setting for a relaxed atmosphere, just like “strummin’ a six string, on a front porch swing.” Over 130 guests attended, representing top brands and the best spas in Florida. The turnout was phenomenal! Everyone had a great time socializing and just plain having fun getting wasted away at Margaritaville!
Location: The Breakers, Palm Beach, FL
Date: August 16th, 2016
We experienced pure heaven at the FSA “Spa Elegance” event at the Breakers, an elegant, all frills included affair! Attendees mingled with many exciting vendors presenting their brands. What an incredible, successful day we had! Word has it that this was the most elegant and best event in the industry…and seeing how we are a tad partial…we tend to agree.
Location: Turnberry Isle Miami Spa, Miami, FL
Date: October 11th, 2016
The FSA ended the year with their “Miami Spa Life” and the “Future of Spa” event on October 11th, at the newly renovated Turnberry Isle Miami Spa. The day-long event, which was attended by more than 100 spa enthusiasts, was all about the future in spa equipment, cutting-edge services and networking with our Florida spas and vendors. Many products were offered to guests and a Spa Trip to Colorado was the Grand Raffle Prize, powered by The Spa Buzz.
