European Spas Association
ESPA is an umbrella industry organization representing 20 European countries.
Our global objective is to promote spas and balneology in Europe and to take care that the natural remedies based on mineral water, landscape and climate are available to a great number of citizens and visitors as possible.
The European Spas are seeking to work together on matters of common interest in the field of spas and balneology. This requires a greater cooperation of the national and regional associations as well as the private sector on EU level.
The EUROPEAN SPAS ASSOCIATION (ESPA) is formed by members from 19 European countries, among them national and regional spas associations, health resorts and spa facilities. It is important and indeed the norm for just one European association to be the authorised representative of a sector vis-à-vis the European Commission and the European Parliament and to be involved in the relevant procedures. The principle of an association is “Unity is strength!” and therefore is ESPA taking up the challenge to fulfil the tasks that result from the opening of borders in Europe and the extension of the EU, to achieve the defined common aims of its members.
