In the Hotel Spa Industry, Wellness is Front and Center

In the Hotel Spa Industry, Wellness is Front and Center. Bob Henry. RDH ArchitectsIt was a really wonderful experience and a great honour to speak again at the Hotel Spa Forum held at the illustrious Four Seasons George V in Paris this past June. The event was founded by Director Vladi Kovanic, who invited a hundred and twenty thought leaders within the Wellness and Spa industry to discuss emerging innovation.


I was very excited to visit Paris again and present innovation within the designs of Spas and Wellness in four out of five countries. I presented seven projects, opening with The Palm Integrated Health in St. Louis, MO and closing with the new QC Terme project on Governors Island, NY. The projects are ones from around the world that we are currently working on or that were recently completed. These projects provided innovation within each of the wellness sectors.


The conference was very well attended, and my presentation was well received. I had an opportunity to dialogue further with a lot of the thought leaders in the industry. As we’re emerging out of the profound international recession, the general consensus is that wellness is front and center in terms of what everyone needs at this point in time.
