USA, Palm Springs, California. June 17, 2019

The second annual hot springs industry conference in the United States, the Hot Springs Connection, will take place on November 4-8, 2019 in Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, California. Designed for hot springs owners, operators, general managers, facilities directors and marketing professionals, the conference will continue to represent a national effort for commercial geothermal pools, spas and resorts.

The Hot Springs Connection is returning after a successful first year in Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 2018. "The amount of collaboration was inspiring," Scott Whitaker, Director of Operations at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, said. "I believe it got us all reenergized to continue to push for excellence in our field."

The conference is divided into two series. The first, in Palm Springs (Nov. 4-6), will have presentations, seminars, workshops, trade exchange and networking opportunities with colleagues from across the U.S. The second will continue in Desert Hot Springs (Nov. 6-8), including field trips and behind-the-scenes tours at local spas, resorts and historical sites.

This event is organized by Vicky Nash, CEO of tourism communications and marketing firm Resort Trends, Inc. Resort Trends has represented clients throughout the hospitality industry, with over 24 years of work with hot springs in Colorado. Nash also helped create the Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop, an award-winning initiative, and planned the inaugural Hot Springs Connection in 2018.

"After a very successful first year, the Hot Springs Connection is returning with even more to offer representatives within the hot springs industry," Nash said.

Discounted registration rates are available until July 31, 2019, starting at $589 for hot springs operators. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available, ranging from trade show booths, presentation opportunities and inclusion in promotional items for the Hot Springs Connection.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
