The Association

Who we are

ESPA was founded in 1995 in Brussels as an umbrella association for national spa associations in Europe. It is a non-profit and non-governmental association based on Belgian law (A.I.S.B.L.). It has represented the interests of European spas in Brussels, the continent's political nerve centre, ever since.

OUR MISSION:

  • Align health resorts within the European healthcare market
  • More fairness in competition by quality
  • Promote a clear distinction between health resort therapy and recreational services (wellness)

 

WHAT WE DO

Since the beginning, ESPA has built up a close network of contacts with policymakers as well as leading representatives of science and business.
This goes to benefit above all our members - for only with a strong association the opportunities offered by Europe can be used to the full.
