Co-located with America’s Beauty Show by Cosmetologists Chicago, IECSC Chicago provides spa, wellness, and beauty professionals with cutting-edge education and products from 200+ exhibitors. As an added bonus, attendees can take advantage of early bird pricing by registering now through Feb. 25.

“We’re thrilled to bring this event to the strong midwestern spa and wellness market; the industry spoke, and we listened,” says Kathy Gruttadauria, show director for IECSC events. “The success of this event is due to our loyal and supportive exhibitors, committed staff, and the engaged regional market that trusts the IECSC brand. We could not be happier to see business being done and lifelong connections being made.” 

New for 2019, IECSC Chicago is offering an Advanced Education Workshop, Intro to Cannabinoids in a Spa Setting, which will provide information on how professionals can incorporate CBD into therapeutic spa offerings. Another unique educational offering is Spa Journeys with American Spa in which attendees can register for a behind the scenes tour of two of Chicago’s hottest wellness centers, The Spa at Dana Hotel and Spa Space.
