NEW YORK — New ventures and cautious optimism punctuated two nascent Northeast trade shows — the Medical Spa Expo & Conference (Medi-Spa) and the Spa & Resort Expo & Conference — which were held jointly on Manhattan’s Pier 94 last weekend.
The combined event, a new venture in and of itself, marked the debut of Medi-Spa, which ran Saturday and Sunday, and the second annual Spa & Resort Expo, which ran Sunday and Monday. While many Medi-Spa exhibitors showed at last year’s Spa & Resort Expo, organizers felt that a proliferation in recent years of medical spas warranted a separate show for that sector of the industry.
