Network, network, network
This year, Face & Body is offering three special events that allow attendees to interact with each other on a social level, as well as network on a business level. Choose from a variety of popular special outings that go beyond just having fun.
Spa Tour. Join the Spa Tour on Saturday, July 17, from 9–11:30 am. This organized tour of unique spas in the downtown area of San Jose allows attendees to meet and network with fellow spa owners and managers, and learn more about their businesses, spa menus and how spas within a few miles of each other successfully market to different clienteles. Transportation will be provided to each spa, with pick-up and drop-off at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center.
Networking Luncheon. What are you doing for lunch? Join your peers after the Spa Tour from 11:45 am–1 pm in the Courtyard Atrium at Il Fornaio restaurant, located within the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, for an intimate networking luncheon sponsored by GlyMed Plus, featuring a keynote presentation by CEO and president Christine Heathman. Reminiscent of traditional Italian trattorias, the sights, sounds and aromas of authentic Italian cuisine are recreated fresh every day at Il Fornaio Cucina Italiana, and this networking luncheon is the perfect opportunity to share new ideas, strategies and industry trends with your peers.
An evening in wine country. Finally, spend an evening in wine country after a successful day of networking during the Spa Tour, Networking Luncheon and product-neutral Advanced Education Conference Program.
From 5:30–8:30 pm, travel to Heart O’ The Mountain Vineyard and Winery in the Santa Cruz mountains for a wine tasting and hors d’oeuvre pairing, sponsored by Éminence Organic Skin Care.
The Mountain Vineyard and Winery, a premium grape-growing property once owned by famous director Alfred Hitchcock and now owned by the Robert Brassfield family, produces a limited amount of handcrafted pinot noir. A shuttle service will be provided for this event, and all wine tour participants must be at least 21 to participate and will need to present a valid photo ID.
