I returned from the Premiere trade show in Orlando, Florida, at 1:00 this morning. I’m walking into walls! Was it worth the trip to this steamy area of the country? You bet!
industry was there…either as attendees or mainlining at shows and educational events. Just a sampling: Anthony Mascolo and his TIGI team; Nicholas French, Beth Minardi, Tabatha Coffey, Nick Arrojo, Angus Mitchell, Robert Cromeans, Kim Vo, Sandra and Brian Smith, Martin Parsons, Richard Thompson, Sam Villa, Wayne Grund, Paul Wilson, Scott Cole…phew! My fingers are getting tired. The lineup went on and on.
But suffice it to say that all major brands, and most smaller companies, released new products and tools at the event. Check out your fave beauty makers’ websites for news without delay! You can also access PremiereOrlandoShow.com to view dozens of gorgeous pics and company information.
Artists performed their personal brands of magic. Lines were also wrapped around the mammoth rooms off the show floor, as committed professionals waited to attend classes and major events. Equally wonderful was the fact that everyone wore a smile. Thank goodness this recession is finally loosening its grip on the beauty economy!
It was a night to remember…always. And, of course, here’s a big shout-out to Creative Age Publications—our mother company. Collectively, we sponsored Main Stage, the Dayspa portion of Premiere, the NailPro magazine competition and much more!
