About Spa & Wellness Association Singapore (SWAS)

As a trade association, SWAS’ key focuses stand on four pillars:
•    raising standards to nurture stronger businesses and better client service

Recent accomplishments of SWAS

SWAS has been very active in leading Singapore companies to take part in many international industry trade shows to provide trade opportunities under the Singapore Pavilion in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Dubai and Italy. We constantly look for other credible international trade shows to provide more international trade opportunities for our members and industry friends alike.

Together with an insurance broker, SWAS have launched an industry insurance plan in July 2010 to protect the consumers’ unused package money in the event an establishment closes. Case Trust has now implemented this plan as mandatory criteria for any establishment to be Case Trusted and for any Spa to be accredited.
SWAS has also recently embarked on an industry software development with the support of IDA. The purpose of this industry software is to lower operation costs and increase productivity of our members.
