Live Love Spa Announces Heal Together Summit


Live Love Spa will be hosting the Heal Together Virtual Summit April 19-21. This three-day virtual summit is designed to be a unique and connected experience for spa professionals looking for strength and inspiration during these challenging times. Attendees, which include spa buyers and professionals, will engage in contemporary issues with key takeaways to increase and strengthen their business and form vital partnerships with the best in the industry. 

“Now that we’re seeing a light, we wanted to continue to support the spas with resources and connections to get their businesses back on track utilizing new technology,” says Lisa Michaelis, CEO and founder of Live Love Spa. “We really wanted to emulate the in-person experience as much as possible. We wanted the ability to network, talk to who you want, when you want, like you would at a real event or tradeshow. Nothing will take the place of in-person events, but we’re excited for this level of connection without the expense of hotel, air, travel, setup, and food and beverage, and we feel that virtual will continue to have its place even after the world re-opens.”

The Heal Together Summit leverages new technology with main stage and session talks, one-on-one speed networking, virtual expo booths, workshops, panels, and a virtual headshot booth. The pillars include Leadership, Generating Revenue, and the Future of Wellness plus new innovations in products, retail, and treatment solutions.  

Supporting brands include Eminence Organic Skin CareWell ProductsVita LiberataCause + Medic, CoolaMoroccanoilYon-ka ParisPure Fiji, and Oakworks

“Our community is strong and resilient, and we will get through this, but it’s so much easier when you know you’re not alone and that your friends are out there to support you,” says Michaelis. “That’s why it was also important to bring community resource partners together in this event, as well”
