Had such a great array of vendors and classes to choose from. Purchased lots of products, equipment and took some classes, am looking forward to next year. Found some great product lines that I will be following up with more in the near future. The only downside was there were a lot of vendor selling products and doing demos only in Spanish. Very frustrating trying to purchase or learn something not in English. Hopefully next year this will be corrected. I felt I missed out on trying a lot of stuff due to lack of the ability to communicate.
I wish there were more classes taught. Perhaps adding short advanced training condensed into an hour starting at 10am and run till 6. I also would have liked it if the show had a larger mix of items geared towards massage therapy as well. Items like hot & cold stones, classes, lotions, chairs, etc. I think there’d be a larger turn out of it was esthetician and massage combined since there really isn’t a convention for massage in the state of Texas. It’d also be another way to add more classes, like how to do advanced “lotion application techniques for estheticians. Feel free to contact me for more ideas, or suggestions.
I have attended many conventions over my twenty plus years as a professional and found this one lacking. I recently returned from Cosmprof in Bologna and the difference in quality was astounding. The variety of exhibitors was minimal and education topics provided were lacking. Also, having the educational sessions basically in the same room as the exhibit was not helpful as the sound system was off (hard to deal with the acoutstics in such a large room) and the constant flow of traffic in and out was disruptive.
The management rude, unconciderate, some attendees pushi arrogant. The floor plan was not well designed - some management even were used bulgar words to the guests and to the companies were renting the space ! It was a sucking experience! After I talked with some other account holders I was told it was not a first time and it is well known for the management this type of unprofessional customer service! They are not following those standards! Very very sad!
