On August 25–27, Skin Inc. magazine’s Face & Body Spa & Healthy Aging Conference and Expo will welcome thousands of you to San Francisco.
You’ll arrive to find the largest number and variety of exhibitors in it’s 15-year history. You’ll also find the finest, most credible conference program ever, including tracks in Esthetic Science; Healthy Aging; the Owner’s Forum; Spa, MD; and Trends. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend two partner conferences offering innovations in the medical field and proven business practices that will improve your profitability.
The show will fill your information, networking and spa-buying needs through the conference and expo. Additionally, some of you will take the time to explore the area. I’ll contribute my favorite spots for those of you who are planning to tie some relaxation in with your education. There are dozens of sights and areas to explore in San Francisco itself, and you probably have your favorites if you’re a repeat visitor. My suggestions are popular destinations, but a bit off the beaten path.
Healdsburg. About 70 miles north of San Francisco, a quaint little town called Healdsburg is nestled by the Russian River. This area has been compared to Tuscany in Italy. It offers fine spas, shopping, antiquing, historic homes, wine tasting of course, and festivals that have often been featured on national television commercials. It’s located in the center of wine country, which puts it quite close to my favorite winery.
Ferrari–Carano Winery. The Ferrari–Carano Winery not only produces world-class, nationally acclaimed wines, but also dazzles the unsuspecting visitor with five acres of lush gardens. The beautiful buildings are reminiscent of an Italian villa. Its knowledgeable staff assists you in exploring the wine. This is a truly beautiful experience for all of your senses.
