Plans Underway for Next Hot Springs Connection Conference

Mark your calendar for the next Hot Springs Connection conference to be held on May 17-20, 2021 at the beautiful Quinn’s Hot Springs Resort in Paradise, Montana.



Established in 2018, the Hot Springs Connection conference is the first and only event designed specifically for owners and operators of thermal mineral water resorts. Topics range from heritage preservation, water stewardship, natural resource protection and standardizing regulatory requirements to utilizing geothermal energy in unique ways, wellness trends, new design standards, hospitality training, tourism marketing and running profitable spas. Last year, more than 120 like-minded industry professionals were in attendance, representing 40 hot springs facilities based in 20 states, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Event coordinator Vicky Nash says, “We’ve all had enough Zoom calls, so let’s meet in person again! Everyone needs a break after enduring the challenges of 2020.”




Quinn’s Hot Springs Resort is located one hour northwest of Missoula, MT on the bank of the Clark Fork River surrounded by the Lolo National Forest. The resort will showcase the addition of their newly constructed pool area featuring a variety of soaking options at different temperatures surrounded by rock walls, waterfalls, and multi-colored lighting.

“We are quite proud of the recent improvements to our historic property and are looking forward to hosting our industry colleagues,” says Ben Slusser, Vice President/Director of Operations. “This is a great opportunity for Montana to highlight the abundance of hot springs facilities in our state.”


Proper COVID protocol is practiced resort-wide.
