Hot springs leaders gather in US for 2nd annual Global Thermal Think Tank

The second annual Global Thermal Think Tank took place earlier this month in California and New Mexico, US, bringing together world leaders in hot springs for days of talks and thermal experiences.

The event commenced at Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, California, with two days of programmes and special events. It then moved to Two Bunch Palms in California, and then on to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa and Sunrise Springs Spa Resort, both in New Mexico.

Delegates looked at hot springs trends, growth and operations around the world, examined what each facility executed best, and gained knowledge from case studies and open dialogue. The research and findings on the effects of thermal mineral water on the body was the core theme of the event, and industry leaders advocated for a petition declaring 22 June as World Bathing Day.

“Hot springs are the origin of life, and water is a healing solution with global impact,” said Ingo Schweder, CEO of GOCO Hospitality and Glen Ivy Hot Springs. “Access to water, especially mineral water, has a major impact on the health and prospects of the world.”

Clive McNish, general manager of Glen Ivy Hot Springs, shared updates on the property, including an analysis on spa booking and operating systems.

“We’re working together as hot springs operators to identify challenges that we need addressed by our property management systems to create a more seamless experience for our guests before, during and after their visits,” said McNish.

Marc Cohen, professor of health sciences at RMIT University in Australia, presented an accreditation and training programme that included a review of existing industry standards.

“This is a unique industry which requires highly specialised education programmes and staff training guidelines,” said Cohen.

Dr Richard Lewis Miller, founder and CEO of Wilbur Hot Springs Health Maintenance Organization, delivered research updates on the mental and physical health benefits of hot springs.

Meanwhile, Dr Jack Tsonis, founder of Australian Sweat Bathing Association, gave a presentation on extreme hot and cold bathing practices. Marion Schneider, CEO of Germany-based Toskanaworld, presented a social and economic study on the benefits of hot springs facilities to communities.

Last year's inaugural event took place at the Toskanaworld Hotel and Therme in Bad Orb, Germany, in advance of the Global Wellness Summit. Details on next year's event have not yet been announced, but it will likely take place in Italy, where the Global Wellness Summit will be held.
