The IV industry is booming, and for the first time ever, pioneers in the health and wellness space are coming together to give the industry more shape and prominence. Liquivida is one of the leading companies invited to speak at the industry’s first-ever IV Biz Bash in Orlando, Florida on October 14th and 15th, 2022.
For many, the conference marks the start of a viable industry that is taking off in a post-pandemic era. More and more doctors, nurses and medical practitioners are finding that IV therapy is a booming business with the power to make strides in wellness environments. The upcoming conference is a big step for the industry to receive attention nationwide. This is why Sam Tejada, the founder of Liquivida, was eager to step up to help.
As the idea for an IV industry conference was taking shape, Chris Himel, conference director and organizer, reached out to select names in the industry he knew he could trust to help lead the charge. Liquivida was one of the first industries considered, and one of the most responsive. Chris noted that Sam Tejada immediately reached out to ask how he could help, and how else he could be involved. Chris explained, “I just have a tremendous amount of respect for them, and what they do, and what they’ve built, and how he and Emmanuel and Jeff run that company.” Himel thought that Liquivida and their leadership were some of the professionals he needed to help participants get the most value from the conference experience.
“To me, the easiest way to learn is to learn from someone who has already done it.” Himel says in regards to his industry leader contacts. He wants people just starting out in the industry to see the success tactics of people who have already traveled the same roads with similar obstacles. In looking for experience, Liquivida, which has been consistently expanding their scope and their offerings within the IV industry and wellness field, was also one of the first to come to mind. Himel notes that they could have used celebrities to speak about the process, but he thought the attendees would get more value from the event by watching people who are already successful in their work.
Liquivida’s growth and marketing will actually be one of Sam Tejada’s main talking points during the conference. He will also share specific insights on what it takes to grow a mobile IV operation, to develop a corporate wellness outreach program, and to scale an IV practice through Liquivida’s IV kits, vial packets, or through Liquivida Wellness Centers, which have been named a Top Health and Wellness Franchise to Watch by Franchise Times magazine.
Sam will also serve on a panel for the biggest industry names to discuss the behind the scenes growing processes and the state of the industry from the top.
Himel notes that he has been both surprised and inspired that even competing businesses are coming together to better the industry. Everyone seems to be united under the idea that “the more people know about the industry, the better it is for everyone.” Gathering the cohesive, yet competing industry leaders together to discuss their experiences is the best way to disseminate information so that the industry can succeed as a whole.
“This industry has been desperate for an event like this because it is such a new and upcoming industry, and we knew we needed to do something to gather the top minds in the space and create an event that not only puts IV Therapy on the map, but also sets up each and every attendee up for massive success in the space,” says Chris. The event has been designed to give attendees real world knowledge and tools for success, ranging from opening a franchise in the IV industry, to the new practices that they could implement.
The conference also gives major players the opportunity to set operational standards to safely and professionally run an IV therapy business. This includes best practices to deliver an ideal customer experience while obtaining positive patient outcomes. Chris also notes that unified expectations and standards are crucial for the growing industry. One establishment that veers from the norms may affect the reputation of the industry as a whole. Liquivida and the other industry leaders at IV Biz Bash know the accepted practices, and are able to inform the up and comers of the industry on how to get things done properly.
“We couldn’t be more proud and grateful to put this event on; there is nothing quite like getting hundreds of like-minded people into a room with one mission in mind.” Himel notes that the conference is expected to attract over 500 IV enthusiasts from across the country, with participants coming to Florida from as far away as Alaska.
Liquivida will be joining other leading franchises such as The Dripbar and Restore Hyper Wellness in discussions that are expected to set the tone for a structured and now influential segment under the Anti-Aging and Wellness category. Though there have been conferences in the medical spa industry (AmSpa) and in the anti-aging space (A4M Conference), the IV BIZ Bash will be the largest and best attended event in the IV industry.
As the health and wellness space continues to consolidate, we expect to see more opportunities for practitioners to start new business ventures. They might even flourish as entrepreneurs by opening up a mobile IV business or buying into a franchise that they believe in. Sam Tejada, Chis Himel, and other industry leaders are ready to discuss all of the possibilities.
“Events like this aren’t a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘must to grow, connect, learn, and be our best selves’. We can’t wait to see everyone there!” says Chris Himel. Liquivida and other big names are leading the IV industry to success with the first ever, IV BIZ Bash, a must attend event for anyone hoping to grow their IV therapy business.
