Can you believe it’s 94 days until Christmas?! We are approaching the 4th quarter of 2015…what have you done for yourself lately?
Have you taken that class to further your skills? Attended a networking event? Initiated some meetings or started that project you declared would happen in January 2015?
I’ve compiled a list of various beauty-related events scheduled for the rest of the year that will support your career and business aspirations. It will certainly be worth the time and/or money investment, should you be committed to your goals!
The Artist Summit, The Powder Group
October 4-7, 2015 | Provincetown, MA
Business executives from across the makeup industry, brand owners, and world-renowned artists will come together for three days of insightful and inspiring discussion about artistry, career and beauty. Also, my BFF Stephanie Flor will be one of the guest speakers at the event!
Speed Networking: Make the Connection, Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW)
October 6, 2015 | New York, NY
I love speed networking! It eliminated the awkward ice breaker and made the process of networking fun. You never know if you have a mutual contact, have the same hobbies, and career aspirations!
Crystal Wright’s 4-Day Portfolio Building & Marketing Workshop
October 17-20 | Stamford, CT
Crystal Wright wrote the bible on how to make it as a celebrity artist, aptly titled The Hair, Makeup and Fashion Styling Career Guide. She brings the book to life with this intense 4-day workshop. I’ve sat in it myself and you will not walk out the same!
ISPA Conference & Expo
October 19-21, 2015 | Las Vegas, NV
This is one of the many beauty trade shows, and one of the few geared towards the spa industry. This event is definitely on my must-attend list! And having it at the Mandalay Bay Hotel isn’t too bad either!
International Congress of Esthetics & Spa
October 25 & 26, 2015 | Philadelphia, PA
This is another spa trade show. It is chock full of break out sessions, vendor demonstrations, and tons of deals for products and equipment. Not to mention, loads of networking opportunities!
The Makeup Show: Chicago
November 7-8, 2015 | Chicago, IL (duh)
The iconic trade show for makeup pros only is celebrating its 5 years in the Windy City. Artists will shop tons of brands at deep discounts while tapping into education forums, with speakers such as David Klasfeld, founder of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC).
International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference
November 15-16 | Orlando, FL
Another awesome spa trade show! It’s smaller than the New York expo, but definitely worth attending for the product deals and educational sessions.
