ELIGIBLE REGISTRANTS
Current ISPA members within the spa, corporate spa headquarter, corporate spa link, spa under development, student, transitional, travel or educator categories may register to attend the ISPA Conference & Expo. ISPA resource partner members who qualify as a service provider may also register. To qualify as a service provider, the individual or business must have a primary focus on providing a service to spa professionals and may not distribute, produce or sell products or equipment within the spa industry. Examples of service providers include consultants, educational institutions, architects/designers and investors. In order to protect the investment of exhibitors and sponsors, all resource partners who do not fall within the service provider subcategory must exhibit or be a sponsor at the 2011 ISPA Conference & Expo to attend the event.

Nonmember spa professionals and students may register to attend; however, all applications submitted are subject to review and approval. Nonmember resource partners are not eligible to attend. All inquiries regarding eligibility may be directed to ispa@ispastaff.com or 859.226.4326.
