Modern spa tourism has evolved globally, from the first small businesses of the 1980s and 1990s into one of the world’s largest (and youngest) leisure industries, augmented by the formation of its trade body, the International Spa Association (ISPA) in 1991. ISPA’s mission is to advance the spa industry by providing educational and networking opportunities, promoting the value of the spa experience and speaking as an authoritative voice to foster professionalism and growth. Membership has grown from just ten countries in 1991 to spa providers in over 70 countries in 2011.
The economic downturn hit many spas hard, with overall revenues falling 15% on the previous year. Despite this setback, consumer interest in spas continues, not just with the affluent ‘Baby Boomers’ (those born between 1946-64), who fuelled the industry’s initial success and remain committed spa-goers, but also with a younger generation for whom spas, fitness and wellbeing are an integral part of their busy lifestyles.
