The beginning of a New Year seems like a perfect time to reflect on the idea of “A Defining Moment,” which is the theme for the 2013 Global Spa & Wellness Summit, taking place in New Delhi, India, October 5-7. To help set the stage, consider these synonyms for a “defining moment” — critical juncture, pivotal point, crossroads, zero hour, turning point, decisive moment, high noon, nexus, or turn of the tide.
Here are eight “Defining Moment” forums that will be held at the 2013 GSWS. Each will take place on Saturday, October 5, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
As you review this list, please reflect on this question, “What can we accomplish together, that none of us can accomplish on our own?” That will be the focus of the forum for those who are there in person as well as for those who might participate in the discussion virtually.
• Destination Spa Forum
• Green Spa Forum
• Hydrothermal and Manufacturers Forum
• Spa Education Forum
• Spa Retail Forum
• Standards and Practices Forum
• Ancient Healing Traditions Forum
• Wellness Tourism Forum Congress
Past Summits have encouraged these gatherings of like-minded industry leaders, sometimes formally and sometimes more casually. The outcome has been popular and effective, so this year we are making the forums a key part of the Summit. All delegates are invited to participate in whichever one(s) they choose. A spokesperson for each of the forums will address the entire Summit delegation the following day, making the possibility of a defining moment a reality. If you feel called to be a leader or organizer of one of the forums, please let us know. And stay tuned for more information in the coming months!
Enjoy your weekend,
The GSWS Team
