Despite Economic Woes, Conference Packed with Skin and Spa Professionals

Economic woes did not keep skin care and spa professionals away from the International Congress of Esthetics and Spa held recently in Dallas for the first conference of the year.

The classrooms were filled to capacity and the exhibitor floor was packed. The show’s attendance even exceeded the numbers from 2008.

The two-day conference included general session lectures and demonstrations, manufacturers’ workshops, an Advanced Salon/Spa Business Seminar and the Dallas premiere of the Green Summit.

The Dallas 2009 ICES was the first Dallas show to feature the Green Summit, a new component of ICES conferences that was added to the shows in 2008. The eco-friendly series for the Dallas show consisted of lectures by Robert and Melanie Sachs entitled “Grass Roots Green” and “The 21st Century Aroma Spa: Creating an Aromatic/Holistic Spa Environment with Essential Oils” by Michael Scholes.
