If you’re in the spa or MedSpa business, you need to consider attending the New York Show – April 26-28, 2009. IECSC (International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference) has four shows scheduled this year. They are regionally located to cut down on travel costs – NY, Las Vegas, Illinois and Florida. Each conference has education tracks set aside for specific interest – Medical Aesthetics, Spa Business and numerous workshops and educational programs.
There are expected to be over 200 exhibitors and lots of info for dealing with the weakened economy, expanding services and improving sq/ft ROI. Costs range from $70 for a single workshop to $500 for a 3-day pass to all programs. Go to http://www.iecsc.com/ny/ for more information. General admission to the floor is free. There is a very nifty interactive PDF with schedules, details, and registration information.
