IECSC To Launch in Chicago

IECSC ChicagoInternational Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference (IECSC) has announced the launch of its fourth annual spa and wellness event in Chicago. Presented by American Spa, IECSC Chicago will take place March 25 to 27, 2017, at McCormick Place and will co-locate with America’s Beauty Show (ABS) by Cosmetologists Chicago, which is one of the largest beauty events in the nation. IECSC Chicago will follow the successful model of IECSC New York and IECSC Las Vegas, which are held in conjunction with significant events serving the beauty industry. Also, by co-locating with ABS, the tradeshow will benefit from the natural synergy of running alongside a well-established leading beauty event. “We are so excited about this newest addition to the IECSC portfolio,” says event director Kathy Gruttadauria. “After 25 years in the spa and wellness industry, each of our existing events in New York, Las Vegas, and Florida have continued to grow year-over-year. We have remained at the forefront of the industry by providing turnkey events that feature top-notch education, attendance, and exhibit floors. The continued growth and positive feedback from attendees and exhibitors regarding our existing events have secured IECSC as the spa and wellness industry’s market leaders. The Midwestern region is a natural extension of our existing brand, and we look forward to serving that region.”

Established 25 years ago, IECSC is part of the Questex, LLC Beauty, Spa & Wellness group, which has sister publications and trade events that cover every sector of the beauty, spa, and wellness industry. The IECSC events in Florida, Las Vegas, and New York attract more than 40,000 admissions annually and provide a dynamic tradeshow floor for access to leading manufacturers and networking along with an in-depth conference program designed for the spa professional. “Questex, the parent company of IECSC and American Spa, is fully invested in serving the Midwestern region’s spa market,” says Dana Lupton, executive vice president for the Beauty, Spa & Wellness Group. “We recognize the long-term opportunity of co-locating with America’s Beauty Show and have pledged our commitment to delivering leading beauty, spa, and wellness events in the vibrant Midwestern region.
