What 2013 Attendees Had to Say…
I spoke with my staff and we decided to attend ESI because of the level of education and the fact that it was all inclusive in the price. There’s only one price for the entire show and all the classes. That was a big draw for us. We will definitely come back next year!
Andrea Lamarre, Owner, Spa Euphoria, Longview, WA
This is the best show I’ve been to in 20 years. There’s more education and a much more professional ambience than other shows. ESI attracts more of the owners and professionals in the industry. Everything went well, the service is excellent, and the Sands Expo is a great venue.
Mara Gallegos, Owner, Total Bliss Day Spa, Pahrump, NV
I love this show because of the educational component. I discovered a lot of nice products and I received a lot of new ideas from the vendors. I will be here every year! I attended a great class on marketing and social media that was very helpful for me to learn.
Jean Alm, Manager, Malahini Day Spa, Coronado, CA
I had a great experience at ESI. I went to a few of the educational classes that were offered and all seminars were very informative. There are a lot of new things that I have learned and can take back and implement at our business. The vendors were also very knowledgeable. It helps us be ahead of the game.
Saundra Silva, Assistent Manager, Mandarin Oriental Hotel & Spa, Las Vegas, NV
I had a facial treatment on-site and it was very professional. I also went to the non-surgical facelift class and that was impressive. Seeing is believing, and that’s one of the main reasons why I came to Las Vegas for this show. There are a lot of great products out there to try.
Stella Tellez, Esthetician, Jabez Hair & Nails, Tucson, AZ
The education aspect is great. Here at ESI, you have the opportunity to talk with Michael Tompkins from Miraval, and Adam Hawthorne from Travaasa. You don’t see that very often at a spa show I also met one of our partners from Texas and they were excited about the education factor too. It’s more intimate so you can take your time to learn.
Kristin Valentine, Account Director, Spafinder Wellness, New York, NY
For us, the education has been the most beneficial part of this experience. There was a fabulous class on Profit Management, Holistic Trends, Marketing, and Yield Management. The classes addressed everyday challenges that we face at our spa, and helps us create relevant solutions to incorporate into our business.
Sara Noyes, Marketing, Cactus Club Salon & Spa, Okotokus, BC
The education here at ESI has been absolutely amazing and I go to all the spa conferences around the world. I believe that education is such an important part of what we need to do to contribute to the industry Those of us that have been in the industry for even 20 years, we can always learn something new. I can’t wait for the next show! I’m looking forward to it.
Christi Cano, President, Innovative Spa Productions, Henderson, NV
This is a great show! I’ve run into a lot of people I know and I’ve learned a ton. I had a blast and I got a chance to talk to everybody I wanted to see. I don’t like attending shows that are so huge you end up missing 90% of it. I definitely appreciate the model that you have for this show.
