New York kicks-off the IECSC events taking place this year, building excitement in the spa and wellness market as the leading tradeshows for the industry. IECSC New York is followed by the upcoming Chicago show, as well as the Las Vegas and Florida shows later in the year. Presented by American Spa, IECSC draws spa owners, managers, estheticians, cosmetologists, massage therapists, medical estheticians, dermatologists, and other industry professionals from across the country to the networking event. These experts came together at IECSC New York to discover and learn about the latest trends in the spa industry, as well as purchase products from hundreds of unique exhibitors. The success for IECSC New York is enhanced with the co-location with the International Beauty Show (IBS New York), which will celebrate its 102nd year, making it the longest-running beauty professional event in the industry.
“IECSC New York continues to grow each year, attracting the industry’s best companies and attendees making the tradeshow floor the optimal place to do business,” says Kathy Gruttadauria, show director for IECSC. “Last year we introduced a new format to our conference program, Targeted Learning Tracks, which had great attendance. As the spa and wellness industry experiences continuous growth each year, we love that we’re able to offer events that allow exhibitors to interact with new and existing clients. Buyers attend our shows to gain knowledge with our conference program, learn about new products and techniques, network with exhibitors and colleagues, and purchase products on the show floor.
