Zenoti event features a notable lineup of speakers, trailblazers, and executives from leading salons, spas, and medical spas, all assembling in Seattle next week.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 11, 2023 - Zenoti, the technology provider powering more than 25,000 beauty and wellness businesses, has announced that more than 600 industry leaders are scheduled to attend Innergize 2023, a groundbreaking event occurring in Seattle from September 17 to 19.

Executives, managers, and innovators from across the beauty and wellness industry will converge on the Emerald City for three days of insights, inspiration, and celebration. With access to the leaders of salons, spas, medical spas, and technology companies, Innergize attendees will get a clear view of the industry's future – and opportunities to help shape it.

Notable, sought-after speakers will join top minds from beauty and wellness brands. The speaking lineup includes:

  • Elizabeth Gilbert, inspirational, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
  • Joseph Sirosh, Vice President, Alexa Shopping, Amazon
  • Alex Banayan, bestselling business author, personal performance and development expert
  • Douglas Hallstrom, Director, Advent International
  • Cindy Meiskin, Chief Experience Officer, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa
  • David Willis, CEO, European Wax Center
  • Susan Haise, CEO, Edgeless Beauty Group
  • Josh Goodell, CEO, Boardroom Styling Lounge
  • David Crisalli, former CEO, Massage Envy
  • Scott Missad, President and CEO, Beauty Quest Group
  • Lynn Heublein, Co-founder and CEO, SkinSpirit

"We are thrilled to host such an impressive group and are overwhelmed by the response we've received," said Sudheer Koneru, Zenoti co-founder and CEO. "Leaders across the industry tell us how excited they are to join in this unique opportunity. We all look forward to meeting, networking, sharing... all to help everyone succeed in this industry we care so much about."

The event's theme, "Shape the Next," celebrates the collaborative energy of Innergize – and the forward-thinking spirit of the people in beauty and wellness. Over three days, leaders and innovators will share expertise on business growth, AI technology, marketing tactics, staff retention and motivation, data-driven strategies, franchising, membership revenue, and other topics.

Innergize will place a special focus on AI, with multiple sessions on the use of AI in today's salons and spas, and a look at AI innovations coming soon to the industry.

Amid the collaborative learning environment, Innergize shines a light on the industry's people – from Elizabeth Gilbert's keynote address on finding and nourishing inner greatness, to the Golden Hands awards ceremony, highlighting the greatest stylists, massage therapists, medspa clinicians, and other providers.

"I can't think of another event like this," said Koneru, "in which people can learn from and celebrate others across the entire industry. Not just large, enterprise businesses, and more than just a salon-specific or spa-specific agenda. Everyone attending can benefit – but also contribute to crafting best practices their peers can apply to their own businesses in the months and years to come."

The headquarters for the inaugural Innergize event is the beautiful Hyatt Regency Seattle, just a mile from the iconic Space Needle. The evening celebration of the industry – and its standout service providers – takes place at the eclectic Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP).
