5 Karma Burns Individual Edition Attended : Jan, 2018

I got tickets for my daughters who are 17 & 23. My 17 yr old was excited & being at the show helped her decide on a college for this Fall. Her passion is make-up artistry & she'll be going for a Bus. Major, to open a make-up salon. Thank you IMATS!

3 Ely Castillo ELY MAYA/Blvd. Cosmetics Edition Attended : Jan, 2018

The ambiance was good on Sunday then I rate 4.As far as a vendor I give it a 1, I was on the list in case if cancellations and was in contact via email, my name got bypassed and others were called and not me as Ely Maya, I talked to event manager!

3 Jessica Borja N/a at Archway Edition Attended : Jan, 2018

I did attend the even this year fro the 4th time. I did notice that the deals are not as good as they use to be in years past. To only get a $4 savings from retail doesn't seem worth the trip.

3 Lily Fernandes Senior Manager at Showcase Edition Attended : Jan, 2018

Not as many exhibitors as I would have expected. Very general public focussed rather than a show to make contacts and network as well as learn about each brand
