Exhibitor Information

Earning Continuing Education credits is a must for professional estheticians, cosmetologists and massage therapists. Keeping existing customers happy and gaining new ones is a must for businesses that serve the spa and salon industry.

The Southern Spa & Salon Conference is an affordable, high-quality regional event that offers top-of-the-line education. That’s why both attendees and exhibitors have flocked to the conference every year since its launch in 2001. If you’re a regular exhibitor, we look forward to seeing you again.

If you’ve been looking for a place to showcase your products and services, visit customers and cultivate new business, come join us in Hickory.


“This will be my 12th year as an exhibitor at the Southern Spa & Salon Conference, and I know how valuable this event is to an exhibitor. In this one location over a period of just two days, this event exposes the exhibitor's products and services to qualified attendees from multiple states. These are our customers – and our prospective customers. They come to the show because they want to see and hear about what's new and what's good. The Southern Spa & Salon Conference is a great investment of your marketing dollars and your time.”

Pam Huck, Owner/President of Med-Spa Distributors

“This is one of my favorite events to finish the year. It is a very small show with big education. The level of professionals that participate is better than almost any other show I do during the year. I am one of the Educators, plus I have a booth and the quality of attendees is a constant happy surprise.”

Lori Nestore, President/CEO of Eva's Esthetics

“The Southern Salon and Spa Conference is a hidden gem in the mid Atlantic states. From its inception 16 years ago, the conference has provided a much needed, intimate platform for beauty professionals to come together under one roof to explore the latest in innovative technologies and products. As a vendor and presenter, we are very grateful for the highly supportive conference staff who are always nearby to assist our participation to be as seamless as possible. Most importantly, a key highlight of this conference is its commitment and dedication to ensure that attendees have the opportunity to receive top education from skilled educators who possess the knowledge and experience that forwards the growth of this industry.”

“The Southern Spa and Salon Conference has been a huge asset in helping brand our product and increase sales. I was able to reach many more people than I would have done on my own. Having the opportunity to educate attendees at the same time as introduce my company's offerings on the trade show floor had doubled the impact of my presence in the industry. Each year I have acquired new business and solidified existing business through the efforts of the Southern Spa and Salon Conference. Jamie, Judy and the team that put on the conference are wonderful people to work with. They make it easy, fun and so enjoyable to participate. I highly recommend this conference
for any vendor wanting to increase their bottom line. ”
