Along with the knowledge gained in Supplier Classes, attendees had the opportunity to discover the latest products, services and treatments from 172 companies in 263 booths on the completely sold-out show floor on Sunday and Monday. Amber Yeargan, PCA Skin classroom experience manager, worked the PCA booth. “The show has been amazing. We have talked to so many clinicians that really care about our philosophy and really value education. I think that’s the biggest thing that we’ve noticed here. Everyone who we’ve spoken to really cares about learning something new, and really cares about our vision, which is improving people’s lives,” said Yeargan. “We have had great, quality conversations, and it’s been a lot of fun.”
GlyMed Plus’ sales reps Melissa Shippen and Missy Scofield, and education administrator, Christi Roberts, all agree that the show was strong and that quality attendees were there to learn and build their businesses … not just shop. “I’ve been doing trade shows for 10 years, and I said last night: ‘I think this is one of our best trade shows we’ve ever done,’” said Shippen.
Passport to Prizes. Another new Face and Body concept was the Passport to Prizes. Attendees picked up their passports on-site and, to participate, visited 10 specific booths. Once they did so, they were able to drop their completed passport at the Skin Inc. booth for the chance to win $500, $150 or $50 during the daily drawings that took place on Sunday and Monday.
Face & Body Red Carpet. Lira Clinical exclusively sponsored the Face & Body Red Carpet event. Attendees had the chance to win a Lira Clinical gift basket with $1,000 of retail-valued products by striking a pose and posting it to Instagram with hashtags #liraclinical and #fbnc13.
Face & Body allows attendees the chance to take part in amazing education about various aspects of spa business and skin care and to learn about companies and product lines, but it also offers the opportunity to continually network with other industry professionals at various levels in their careers—from skin care students to spa owners, and supplier company CEOs to industry legends.
