Mark your calendars, because Questex’s International Beauty Show (IBS New York) and the International Esthetics, Cosmetics, & Spa Conference (IECSC New York) is returning to New York City on March 5-7th, 2023. The two popular pro beauty events will be co-locating at the Javits Center to offer beauty and wellness professionals nearly 300,000 square feet of exhibit space, where hundreds of your favorite brands will be selling at professional-only prices.
Both IBS and IECSC, which are produced by Questex, are planning for unprecedented events in 2023. The two co-located events will take their first steps towards becoming a unified, holistic wellness event where attendees can attend both shows at no additional cost—allowing them the opportunity to not only walk both exhibit show floors, but also attend any of the free classes at either event.
“By offering our audience two events, it’s an incredible opportunity to give stylists, estheticians, cosmetologists, solopreneurs, spa and salon owners, and anyone else in the beauty and spa industry more classes in wellness, skincare, beauty, and business building, and hundreds more brands to explore,” said Elizabeth Fantetti, partnership & event director, Questex’s Beauty & Spa Group. “There’s no additional fee to attend both shows, and the three-day pass is the absolute greatest value, as it gives attendees the most time to experience everything on the show floor for the best price.”
In terms of activities, attendees have much to look forward to at this year’s events. New to the IBS floor will be The Powerhouse Pavilion: Celebrating Black Beauty Entrepreneurs, which will showcase, celebrate, and empower Black beauty industry entrepreneurs. This pavilion, which is sponsored by Myavana, will feature a gallery highlighting some of the most successful beauty entrepreneurs over the years, and will have beauty industry business consultants available for complimentary one-to-one appointments for any attendee looking to boost their careers. Additionally, attendees will be treated to the latest trends and styles on the new Look & Learn Stage. Lastly, the latest in wellness products—including ingestibles, supplements, vitamins, herbs, and assorted beverages—will be at the forefront of the Healthy You pavilion on the IECSC show floor. And, each show floor will feature its own Studio Stage, a demonstration area developed for exhibitors to present the latest and greatest products and technologies.
As for all the incredible brands that will be in attendance—there will be plenty at both events. The IBS New York 2023 exhibit floor will feature hundreds of high-profile brands including Amika, Andis, DNA Hairtools and Extensions, HALOCOUTURE Extensions, MAC Cosmetics, Olaplex, Parlux, Turbo Power, and many more! IECSC New York 2023 exhibiting brands will include Circadia, Eminence Organic Skin Care, HydraFacial, Geneo, FarmHouse Fresh, MerryLaz, Silhouet-Tone USA, Procell Therapies, and Repechage.
