On a bright and sunny Saturday in San Jose, California, Face & Body Spa & Healthy Aging Conference and Expo 2009 launched today. Featuring some first-time events, as well as highly regarded education offerings, the conference and expo is certainly off to an exciting start.

Three special a la carte events—a spa tour, a networking luncheon and a winery tour—and the Advanced Education Conference Program kicked off the show this year, allowing attendees a chance to learn more about the spa industry at large and in San Jose. It also allowed them the chance to learn a little bit more about each other.

In the morning, attendees toured a trio of San Jose spas—Ayoma LifeSpa in the Hotel Valencia, Beautiful By Design and Tova Day Spa in the Fairmont Hotel. At each, they were able to ask the spa owners questions, see unique spaces and treatments, and even find connections and answers among themselves. The tour provided an opportunity for many spa owners to see ideas implemented in different ways, in addition to learning about new ideas altogether.
