You Spoke. We Listened. So Here Is What's New.

Southern Spa & Salon Conference has been a big success for 17 years, but we’re always open to improvements. And this year, we’ve got them and we want to tell you about them.

Paring Down

We know you’re busy, so we’ve shaved a day off the 2018 conference. This year’s two-day event will be on Saturday and Sunday, November 10-11. Those days will be busy, with classes and the Expo Hall under way both days. Friday is reserved for Expo Hall setup.​

Class Registration

This year we’re adding some two-hour, product-specific classes. This new option offers more opportunities to learn. These classes won’t count for continuing education, but they will be included in the count for the 8 hours in the basic registration fee of $100 for professionals and $75 for students.

Event Registration

For your convenience, you can now complete Southern Spa & Salon Conference registration online. Of course you can still register by mail or by phone. But offering this new option is another example of our conference’s exceptional service.​

What Isn't Changing

This year’s changes are not our first, and they won’t be our last. But some things will always stay the same. We’ll always offer one-on-one education from the best instructors in the business. You’ll always discover quality products and the latest services. And our conference will always offer everything you would find in larger, more expensive venues — plus world-class personal attention. So, whether you’re just starting out or working up to retirement, Southern Spa & Salon Conference offers the superior, affordable education you want. Plus the pleasant, supportive environment you deserve. See you in Hickory!
