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.

Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship

In memory of Hubert Lam, his widow Pat and daughter Lara, owners of Skin Care Consultants, are presenting the Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship to a skin care professional who advocates continuing education. The scholarship includes the Face & Body Northern California 2010 two-day Advanced Education Conference Program, two-day expo hall and Supplier Classes, plus $500 toward travel expenses to the show in San Jose, California, July 17–19, 2010.

Hubert Lam, who passed away suddenly in August 2008, was well-known and highly respected as both an entrepreneur and a doctor of Chinese medicine. He pioneered several technologies in the esthetic field, including permanent makeup, microdermabrasion and the Lam Probe. It was his fervent belief that continuing advanced education is critically important to motivate estheticians to succeed in the industry, and he constantly fought for the esthetician’s right to perform such treatments using advanced technologies.

This scholarship was created to keep his mission to educate the spa industry on the forefront. The Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship will be presented to the skin care professional who wrote the most inspiring essay of 500 words on the topic of why postgraduate education is so important for personal growth in the esthetic industry. Judging will be conducted by the Skin Inc. magazine editorial team and the principals of Skin Care Consultants.
