The FSA “VACAY 2” event was the upshot of last year’s successful VACAY event and by popular demand. This first time 2 day FSA event was the celebration that was the triumph of the summer season for our community! Wrapped around a vacation style atmosphere, with wellness amenities to enjoy during their stay, spa guests arrived at the very exclusive and private Ocean Reef Club with families and friends prior to the event and stayed post event, to indulge in a vacation.
Amid this retreat, the FSA created an ambiance for our guests to enjoy 2 days of exciting event filled opportunities to participate in a show-stopping vendor exhibition, network, enjoy spa treatments and experience 2 days of highly valuable inspirational and educational keynote speakers and educational presentations that impressed all that attended. Spa leaders arrived from the Keys and Miami as well as distant areas of Florida. Quality Spa Leaders turned out for this event, connecting with exhibitors and fellow spa friends. Mouth-watering healthy lunches were served each day along with yummy sweet delights. Every portion of the day, supported by the FSA team and the Ocean Reef Club staff reached the high point of excellence. From our premier vendor showcase and captivating exhibitors, to our pampering spa services that shuttled spa guests from the expo floor to the spa, and ending with a fun-filled cocktail reception ……it was cool as the ocean breeze!!
