NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA), a health and wellness company, today provided the following business update regarding its strategic partnerships that are well-positioned to produce results during the record holiday travel season.

Doug Satzman, XpresSpa Group CEO, stated, “The XpresSpa brand is a desirable health and wellness partner for innovative companies seeking to leverage our high-quality real estate and affluent customer base. The strategic partnerships we are forging with like-minded companies are geared towards increasing sales by evolving our product assortment through a wider array of quality retail items, ranging from vitamins and health supplements to new relaxation travel products to testing high-quality CBD offerings. We are excited to see these plans come to fruition in time for the holiday travel peak after many months of work with our partners.”

Strategic Partnerships

-- Our Calm retail collection has been expanded to include a new weighted travel blanket complementing the Calm weighted sleep mask that launched last month, both of which both promote faster and deeper sleep. These new Calm-branded products were designed in collaboration with industry leader Gravity. -- Persona™ products are now available across all domestic airport spas. Persona™ is a Nestlé Health Science (NHSc) company and leading personalized vitamin-subscription program that signed a strategic partnership agreement with XpresSpa in late October. Customers can purchase three different nutrition packs in every spa designed especially for travelers to support relaxation, immunity or jet lag, while additionally receiving an exclusive discount for XpresSpa customers on their first online order. -- We are launching a seven-week CBD test pilot across 16 domestic airport stores this week featuring three products from Nira. Nira is an emerging brand and a producer of physician-formulated CBD products that are produced with the highest quality hemp extract. The three products that are currently being tested are a hemp oil lotion, full spectrum soft gel capsules, and a full spectrum tincture oil.
