The spa industry was busy doing business in New York City this past week! The 2010 International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference – New York enjoyed a packed tradeshow floor, and a well-attended conference program at the Javits Center in New York City, which took place March 7-9. With more than 200 manufacturers on the show floor, attendees were able to source and purchase the newest products in the spa market. Conference offerings focused on how to sustain business in a difficult economy.
“This was an extremely successful IECSC New York event, surpassing prior New York shows” said Dana Lupton, vice president of the spa industry group. “Spa industry professionals came to this event to buy and seek out relationships with new suppliers, and we are hopeful that the activity on the show floor is a positive sign of great things ahead for the spa industry.”
The show floor was also host to multiple product launches, including:
For the first time at the New York show, the ‘Best Booth Awards’ were given out for the most attractive and unique booths on the show floor. The American Spa editors and IECSC show management team walked the aisles, and placed their votes. Farmhouse Fresh won in the smaller booth category, while Your Name Professional Brands, took the honor in the larger booth category. Congratulations to both companies!
IECSC Las Vegas is up next, taking place April 24-26. Following that will be IECSC Florida, November 6-7, in Fort Lauderdale. All of the IECSC events are sponsored by American Spa magazine. For more information please visit www.iecsc.com.
