First Greek and Spain spa industry reports

 

Spa industry reports for Greece and Spain have been published by Intelligent Spas. The Singapore based research company specialises in the spa industry.

Julie Garrow of Intelligent Spas says, “The Greek spa industry is expected to generate EUR 15 million in revenue in 2011. The Greek spa market experienced overall growth in revenue between 2008 and 2010, however visitor numbers proved unstable and are predicted to fall in 2011. The key per spa benchmarks have also experienced decreases including revenue, visits and employment and are predicted to fall further, suggesting challenging times ahead for Greek spa operators."

Stavros Mavridis of the Spa Managers Club of Greece (SMCG) comments, “ This highlights the importance of the spa and wellness sector to the Greek tourism industry, especially through these difficult economic times. This research will be extremely useful to owners to help them adopt efficient business strategies, implement new spa trends, identify new business opportunities, maximise overall performance and recognise the need for change.”

However, total spa visits showed strong growth over the last three years and total revenue and employee numbers also grew, but at lower rates."
