The most positive was the targeting of buyers directly on the spa and medical offer, contact with buyers from new destinations, the real interest of the participants in the offer, meetings, programmes and networking. We enjoyed the workshop very much and look forward to future editions!

Hosted buyers, Kuren & Wellness, Germany

SPA-CE workshop is an excellent opportunity for us providers to introduce ourselves to interested buyers from all over Europe. The most important thing here is the personal contact we establish with the buyer, as it is much easier to present the offer to them in-person. The time allocated to the one2one meeting is used effectively. Kudos to the organizers for organizing the event.
