Breaking News: Nominations for European HEALTH & SPA AWARDs 2020

Press release, Vienna, October 20, 2020:

The time has come, the nominees for the 12th "Oscar" of the wellness industry have been determined and can be found on www.health-spa-award.com. For the 12th time, the best of the best in the health and wellness industry are being celebrated for their great achievements.

Location: Congress Center Baden

In the "Corona Year" many event were cancelled – but so far not the European HEALTH & SPA AWARD 2020! We also want to send a signal for international wellness tourism and show that travel is possible even in these difficult times, with the necessary care and the necessary hygiene rules. Because without travel, tourism is dead and that cannot and should not be our goal, because tourism generates enormous added value and many other industries participate from it and generate large turnovers.

If you also need ideas for your next holiday, the European HEALTH & SPA AWARD is an excellent way to take the decision off your shoulders.

This year, the award ceremony will not take place in Vienna, but in beautiful Baden near Vienna. As Baden is still a traditional and popular spa and summer resort for those seeking relaxation, it is an ideal place for a luxurious gala evening to reward the wellness industry. This year, the gala will take place for the first time at the Congress Center Baden (www.ccb.at). For more information, please visit the website to apply to the gala.

As always, the potential prizewinners were able to prove themselves with their spas, treatments and product innovations in the areas of design/technology, health, benefits, cost-effectiveness, sustainability, creativity, corporate social responsibility, offer and service. Spa management had the opportunity to score points with personal, operational, professional and industry expertise, as well as creativity and corporate social responsibility.

The evaluation was carried out in two stages, not only by industry jurors, but also in the form of Mystery Checks, which were carried out by experts.

Also this year we offer you an excellent musical supporting program with the Paul Temmel Terzett and the singer Lisa Koloseus. This year, the charming ORF presenter Olivia Peter will accompany us again with the award ceremony.

The following program awaits you during the gala evening:
• 19:00 Check-in
• 20:00 Welcome: by Olivia Peter, ORF presenter
• 20:10 Performance by Paul Temmel Terzett with singer Lisa Koloseus
• 20:30 Presentation of nominations

Special Features
If the COVID-19 has been able to prove one thing, it is that even a pandemic like this cannot hinder progress in innovation and the stability of real quality. On the contrary, it shows a new level of ingenuity, resilience and crisis resistance. This is why the new category Best Spa Innovation is so important this year.
