The GSN Buyers Conference is an invitation-only event that offers spa buyers access to quality resource suppliers who are innovative, credible and committed to greening at some level.  Unique and emerging green brands that are not saturated in the market place are launched at our event, providing a fresh mix of suppliers. Our intention is to provide access to a wider range of eco-friendly and sustainable products, thus making it easier for spas to make better choices without compromising smart business.

“The collaboration amongst colleagues, and the quality and uniqueness of the vendors. Everyone at GSN has: A passion to positively impact our industry, A dedication to true intention behind their work, and A joy in connection with each other.”
– Sharon Ogawa, Director of Spa at Grand Wailea
