Maclean Events Launches SPATEC

. October 14, 2008

SEPTEMBER 28, 2006. Mclean Events has announced that the inaugural spa-based forum SPATEC UK and Europe will take place in Malta on 25-28 April 2007.

SPATEC aims to bring together more than 50 of the UK and Europe's most prominent spa, wellness and beauty operators alongside leading spa suppliers to facilitate one-to-one meetings over the course of two days.

The formula from other Mclean Events forums - such as SIBEC - will remain the same for SPATEC, while delegates will also have the opportunity to attend presentations from key speakers within the spa and beauty industry during the course of the event.

Confirmed attendees include Raison D'Etre, Celtic Manor, The Hurlingham Clinic and Spa (Medi Spa), Thalgo, Marriott, The Old Course and Danubius.

Gillie Turner from The Hurlingham Clinic said: "SPATEC is a great opportunity to meet with all the people we want to see in one place. Currently, we don't have a forum like this for the spa sector. I'd love to be able to discuss the way the market moves with other like-minded operators. A relaxed environment provides an ideal way to learn and create new business opportunities." Details:

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
