After much thought and effort, it is with great disappointment that we have decided to park The Irish Spa Awards for the time being.
Running a professional awards event to the high level we set ourselves does not come without a huge amount of work.
The 2014 awards were a genuine success in terms of delivering a professionally evaluated awards. We evaluated 145 entries and awarded 59 spas, therapists and products.
This year we've spent a huge amount of time looking to expand the awards to a much larger stage. It started to become clear to us that the possible return on running the event would make it difficult to deliver to the high standard we had set for ourselves.
The support we got from the industry was really encouraging. We were really lucky to be able to work with some great people especially the judges. A big thank you to Sophia Weir who without her support and mentoring none of this would have ever left the ground. Also a thank you to Lucy Grant who's work planning an award's event night showed me how much of an events professional she is.
Until next time, wishing you all the best!
