World Spa Awards would to like to let you know that our thoughts are with all of you and your families during the unprecedented challenge posed by COVID-19.

Understandably, this crisis has also had a dramatic impact on the spa and wellness industry. The cycle stage varies between countries: some of our spa and wellness institutes are entering lockdown, others have already been forced to close, whilst some are emerging from the crisis and hopeful of re-opening in the near future.

We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the impact on the World Spa Awards programme, in line with government and public health advice and WHO guidelines. In light of the unpredictable circumstances, we have taken the decision to postpone the World Spa Awards 2020 voting period until later in the year. Entries for World Spa Awards 2020 remain open and can be submitted here. Meanwhile the dates of World Spa Awards Gala Ceremony 2020 are under review, and we will communicate an update as soon as the global picture regarding COVID-19 becomes clearer.

This flexible timeframe gives everyone an opportunity to regroup and allows us to handle the World Spa Awards programme with the due care and sensitivity that the industry collectively needs right now.

Many of our wellness and spa experts are serving as incredible forces of inspiration and hope during these dark times, offering their positivity, wellbeing advice and spiritual guidance to their followers. We welcome you to tag World Spa Awards social media in these posts, which we will share on our social media channels, using @worldspaawards or #worldspaawards.

Togetherness has always been the most important thing to us. Now is the time for us to come together and support one another more than ever before. We know that this situation is temporary; together we will navigate through this and soon be able to celebrate the unique spirit of our remarkable and resilient spa and wellness industry.
