ISSE Long Beach Opening

The 2012 International Salon & Spa Expo Long Beach (ISSE Long Beach) event continues to build on the momentum of its popular EstheticsAmerica & Wellness Pavilion in 2012. Launched in 2011 at both ISSE Long Beach and ISSE Midwest, the EstheticsAmerica & Wellness Pavilion provides a space dedicated to skincare and wellness products, education, business and hands-on training. Spanning the Arena of the ISSE Long Beach show floor, the Pavilion offers a more tranquil atmosphere so education and training can take place uninterrupted by other segments of the show.

Sponsored by Repêchage and featuring many of the leading international and up-and-coming skincare lines, attendees will be able to partake in a range of complimentary education and hands-on learning opportunities. CIDESCO USA–certified educators will also be on hand to give professionals access to training and education.

“With the addition of the EstheticsAmerica & Wellness Pavilion, I would highly encourage skincare, spa and wellness professionals to attend ISSE Long Beach and take advantage of the professional atmosphere and wide array of education offered,” states Eric Horn, PBA Associate Executive Director.
