Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 30, 2020: Spa Connectors, a global company offering business, training and recruitment solutions to the spa industry, specialising in 5-star hotels, resorts, stand-alone spas and wellness concepts is driving a movement to reward talent in the community on a global scale by launching The Hall of Wellness Awards 2020.

Now, they aspire to bring them together on a global stage by launching awards where an industry divided by borders will be united in their passion and commitment to their expertise celebrating all individuals in a virtual awards ceremony that is inclusive of the industry across all levels.
The Hall of Wellness Awards not only recognises extraordinary individuals, but also looks to elevate the industry as a whole.

Nominations can be self, or peer nominated, and entrants will then embark on a stringent judging process to help unearth the industry's best.
