NEW YORK, July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Beauty and spa professionals converged at the new West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 22-24, for Questex’s co-located International Beauty Show (IBS Las Vegas) and the International Esthetics, Cosmetics, & Spa Conference (IECSC Las Vegas) presented by American Salon and American Spa, respectively. Audiences discovered more than 400 hours of education, explored more than 560 premier brands and visited four onsite experiences, in their journey to empowerment, and business growth.

The event kicked off with two grand ribbon-cutting ceremonies at the entrances of each show floor. The IECSC ribbon cutting was sponsored by Circadia and guests were welcomed with balloons, confetti and a t-shirt launch from Circadia’s CEO and president, Michael Pugliese, while high profile educators Monae Everett, Joe Flano, Keya Neal, and Adamme Sosa roused the IBS crowd at the IBS show entrance.

The two crowds emerged on to the 157,000 co-located Exhibit Hall to shop, watch in-booth demonstrations, and attend multiple free classes on the Look & Learn Stage, The Studio Stage, and the Say Yes to You Hub, all included in their Exhibit Hall pass for no extra cost.

“We were so proud to offer so many incredible opportunities for education, growth, self-care and empowerment to our audience,” said Elizabeth Fantetti Trevorrow, Event & Partnerships Director, Beauty & Spa for Questex. “With all of the education, demonstrations, consultations, and onsite experiences, there was something for everyone – attendee and exhibitors alike, to connect, rejuvenate, and discover their best self at IBS and IECSC Las Vegas.”

“The IECSC show is exceptional for spa owners, the medical field and aestheticians. So many new products, techniques, tools, etc. The extent of offering live demos to try out products was outstanding. Combining the IECSC with the IBS show all in one hall made it very convenient,” said IECSC exhibitor Shannon Pfile, Express Tubes.

“We sell products via retailers Target, JCP, and thought to reach out to end users. We achieved the goal, now we know who our fans are. It is exciting,” said IBS exhibitor Jane Swain, Prospera Corporation.
