FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York City, June 3, 2010
Internet Week is coming to NYC, June 7-14.
It’s a week to celebrate the city’s thriving Internet industry and community with back-to-back panels and parties embracing social media, technology and a love for connecting and creating online.
But Spa Week®, the company famous for bringing $50 spa treatments to millions of spa-goers across the country every Spring and Fall, has one little question: How do you #SIGNOFF?
During Internet Week, Spa Week is hosting the first ever VIP Internet Week Retreat with exhale, bringing a haven of massage, acupuncture, rooftop meditation, inspirational speakers and refreshing cocktails to NYC, to encourage widespread #SIGNOFF for the folks who need it most. Whether your secret is practicing Yoga every day, enjoying 10 unplugged minutes as you grab your afternoon lunch, or shutting off your phone at 11 pm every night, an occasional Internet Escape is essential to the mind, body and soul.
The Retreat is for the people behind our fast-evolving technology, for the bloggers and online editors who quench our thirst for nonstop information and entertainment, for the influencers, the innovators, and those who have shaped the Internet into what it is today. A little thank you… and a little reminder to live life in more than 140 characters.
Throughout Internet Week, tweet your favorite way to #SIGNOFF – the best will be retweeted by @SPAWEEK.
