Attendees will be given the opportunity to customize their education with the introduction of spa pods. Each pod contains two classes under a theme, including massage, retail, biology, hair removal, marketing, chemistry, wellness and med spa. Attendees can purchase as little as one pod or as many as four pods based on their educational needs.

In addition, the Advanced Education Conference at Face & Body Northern California has been moved to exhibition days, allowing attendees to get their education and see the show floor without taking extra days off. The education schedule has been created with the midday free to attend supplier classes or browse the show floor for some much needed retail therapy.
