Deborah Smith of Smith Club & Spa Specialists is busy completing her application for her Certified Management Certification (CMC) with the hope of passing her written and oral exams by the end of the year (!).  Among her new consulting engagements is one with a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) in Florida to advise on the development of a wellness center and spa at a 40,000 square foot new-build facility on the client's existing 80-acre campus.

Eva Jensch with Spa Concepts International and SpaSense Group LLC  has recently been retained by Carlson Hotels to develop a global spa strategy for Radisson Hotels & Resorts including the launch of the Radisson Blu hotel brand here in the U.S.   Radisson Blu , a high end hotel brand recognized internationally for their fresh, chic and sophisticated approach,  is launching their first Radisson Blu in North America at the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago which includes a large spa facility. Carlson is planning to open at least five Radisson Blu hotels in key gateway U.S. cities within the next five years with the next hotel already in planning at the Mall of America in their corporate hometown of Minneapolis, MN.


SCI  has just started on the 7th Starwood spa project in Asia Pacific in the last four years as part of the Spa Botanica consulting team, a group that was formed after SCI’s development of the award winning Spa Botanica at the Sentosa Resort & Spa in Singapore.   Eva personally has worked on a large thermal springs spa in Bulgaria  within the last year and is currently exploring a potential new spa in Death Valley for Xanterra Parks and Resorts.  SCI was recently called back, after a two year hiatus, to develop an exciting Arabian desert based spa project in Wadi Rum, Jordan, a spectacular desert location and home to D. H. Lawrence as well as the unique Bedouin tribes of the region.   The site is most well known for where the movie "Lawrence of Arabia” was filmed.
