Leading Educators Join Questex’s IECSC Las Vegas

The education program for Questex’s International Esthetics, Cosmetics, & Spa Conference (IECSC Las Vegas) and International Beauty Show (IBS Las Vegas), presented by American Spa and American Salon respectively, return to the Las Vegas Convention Center June 22-24, 2024, at the new West Hall for three full days of top-tier education, exhibits, and a gateway to self-care. "At our recent New York event in March, attendees voiced that education was their foremost motivation for participation,” says Elizabeth Fantetti Trevorrow, event and partnership director for the spa and beauty group at Questex. “As spa and beauty professionals converge at IBS and IECSC Las Vegas, they'll delve into an expansive array of over 300 hours of education led by top-tier educators, artists, and influencers. This immersive experience aims to empower attendees with invaluable wisdom, talent, and insights, fostering business growth and broadening their customer reach. Plus, we’re bringing back the three-day Exhibit Hall, which is very exciting news."
