Taking place the weekend of 5 & 6 March 2016, the trade-only Salon Melbourne focuses this year on the fast evolving beauty industry with a renewed emphasis on skincare, anti-ageing modalities and interactive demonstrations.
“We will provide a one-stop-shop for sourcing, inspiration and state-of-the-art business skills in a demanding market,” says Salon Melbourne event director, Julia Erben.
“If they are truly on top of innovation, and offer the latest product and treatment solutions, salons and clinics today can become the trusted advisors for their clients in a turbulent beauty landscape – and the main beneficiary!
“By bringing together experts, suppliers, salon managers and therapists, Salon Melbourne celebrates the wealth of opportunities presented by the changing beauty landscape.”
Must-visit: Skincare Sanctuary
Several new features make their debut in 2016 foremost of these is the Skincare Sanctuary which highlights the central role of skincare in the beauty industry. This is the place to go speak to leading global and Australian skincare brands, learn about skincare science and watch treatment demonstrations.
Must-visit: The Hub
Another brand new addition in The Hub, located in the centre of the expo floor offering four interactive demonstration areas tailored to makeup, nails, grooming and anti-ageing.
Curated by Reed Exhibitions, The Hub will feature the latest technology, innovation and developments in each of the four sectors with ongoing, interactive 20 minute presentations where visitors can get up close and personal with presenters, products, and live demonstrations.
Must-visit: Anti-Ageing Sector
With anti-ageing at the core of the salon, spa and clinic business, this section of The Hub will focus on the merging of the many disciplines that shape the anti-ageing universe from skin and body care to medicine, technology, and wellbeing.
