Questex's IECSC and IBS Opens This Week in Las Vegas

Questex’s International Esthetics, Cosmetics, & Spa Conference (IECSC Las Vegas) presented by American Spa and International Beauty Show (IBS Las Vegas) presented by American Salon return to the Las Vegas Convention Center June 24-26, co-locating to offer beauty and wellness professionals 130,000 square feet of exhibit space, nearly 600 brands, over 400 hours of education, and four onsite experiences, to help attendees ‘Say Yes’ to themselves. "Our attendees ‘say yes’ all day long to their clients,” says Elizabeth Fantetti Trevorrow, partnership & event director of Questex's Beauty & Spa Group. "They embody the roles of therapists, colleagues, and friends to their clients, constantly prioritizing their needs. Amidst this selfless dedication, they rarely find a moment for themselves. Attending our shows presents a precious opportunity for them to reconnect with their community, gain invaluable education, forge connections with top suppliers, and embrace self-care by saying 'yes' to themselves."

The “Say Yes to You” campaign celebrates and supports attendees and was launched in November 2022.

A multitude of educational opportunities will be led by prominent artists, skilled estheticians, celebrity stylists, successful industry business leaders, wellness professionals and social media influencers. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn the latest trends and techniques, along with business-building skills to take their crafts and careers to the next level. Plus, an entire track devoted to compliance will be available to all attendees and exhibitors at IECSC and IBS, to help protect spa and beauty businesses. The compliance classes will be included in the 3-Day Passport at no additional charge because they are critical to the survival of independent spa and beauty businesses.

As part of the education blitz, a day focused solely on education will take place on Saturday, June 24 and a full roster of classes continue Sunday and Monday, June 25 and 26, while the exhibit halls are open. The exhibit hall will be closed on Saturday.
