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!
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!
This was my first time attending IMATS and I definitely will be returning next year! It was very organized and overall an amazing experience.
It was great I loved all the vendors. Everyone was nice and friendly. I bought a lot of makeup. And looking forward to attending it next year.
