Lawrence Biscontini Joins Conference as the 2013 ISPA Foundation Auctioneer

“Attending the ISPA Conference but missing the Live Auction is like going to Vegas and not seeing a Cirque show.  This is the event where we pull on our generosity collectively to support the ISPA Foundation.”  – Lawrence Biscontini, 2013 ISPA Foundation Auctioneer   

This year, ISPA welcomes Mindful Movement Specialist and globally recognized fitness trainer Lawrence Biscontini back to the ISPA Conference & Expo as auctioneer at the 2013 ISPA Foundation Live Auction. Known for his energetic personality, he is sure to cultivate excitement among attendees during Tuesday night’s Auction activities. Prepare to do some early holiday shopping by placing bids on various items ranging from fine jewelry or skincare products to electronics, fitness equipment, vacation packages and more!

So, what does Lawrence think about his role as auctioneer at the ISPA Foundation Live Auction? He is honored to be back! “I love the pressure of seeing our spa friends ‘battle it out’ for things they want, watching how we all dig into our pockets for the ISPA Foundation, and seeing everyone’s excited faces from my spot on the Auction stage,” he says. “I get the BEST vantage point of the evening, and I’m honored to be able to raise money to support ISPA. Few people realize that this is really the ENTIRE reason why I come to ISPA for the week, just for those few moments when we raise almost all of our money for the ISPA Foundation. This is my ‘give-back’ opportunity to the spa environment that has treated me so well over the years.”
Why should you donate an item to the 2013 Live or Silent Auction? Here’s what Lawrence has to say: “Your gifts are tax-deductible! No bids are too high or small.  Bidding on anything shows your participation in the present moment, and also shows your care beyond the ISPA days in Vegas for ensuring the continued success of the Foundation's research, outreach and scholarships initiatives.  What we take for granted oftentimes in our own, closed spa worlds leaves us in those small worlds.  The Auction allows us to open our consciousness and hearts to see beyond our massage tables.”

Make sure your donated item(s) get maximum exposure by spotlighting them in the 2013 Auction Catalog. The deadline to contribute an item and be included in the Auction Catalog is Monday, Sept. 30.


This year, Biscontini will take on an additional role as the leader of the Greet the Days, located on the Expo floor. Join him at Matrix’s booth at 6:00am each morning to jumpstart your ISPA Conference experience. He will also lead the Project: INFUSE session, Creating Spa Synergy: from Sweat to Service on Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 3:30 – 4:30.
