The New York Spa Alliance (NYSPA) was formed in 2004 to demonstrate and promote the powerful impact of Spa and Wellness on the financial, media, technology, healthcare, work place and hospitality industry. New York, the hub of global business serves as a dynamic home to our annual Symposium where NYSPA brings together industry leaders from across the US to speak on current themes and exchange ideas on the fast-evolving and growing Spa and Wellness community. We share thought, shape the future and bring innovation, connectivity and awareness to New York State Spa and Wellness.
