More Than 30,000 Thousand Beauty and Spa Professionals Attend Questex’s 2024 IBS And IECSC New York Shows

Expanded Education + New Onsite Experiences Draw Enthusiastic Crowds to Iconic Industry Event

NEW YORK, March 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s International Beauty Show (IBS New York) and the International Esthetics, Cosmetics, & Spa Conference (IECSC New York) made a triumphant return to the Javits Convention Center with exciting new onsite experiences, expanded educational opportunities, and three jam-packed days of the best in beauty and spa. Over 30,000 professionals attended to walk through miles of exhibits, learn the latest industry trends and techniques from prominent artists and skilled estheticians, and acquire business-building skills to take their crafts and careers to the next level.

“We could not be more pleased by the success of this year’s New York Shows,” said Elizabeth Fantetti Trevorrow, Partnership & Event Director, Questex’s Beauty & Spa Group. “Our goal first and foremost, was to celebrate and support the members of the beauty and wellness communities and we surpassed that by leaps and bounds on all fronts, from our education, incredible brands, empowerment opportunities, and our self-care initiatives. And we’re just getting started. With the shift in the industry towards solopreneurs, which was reflected in a large percentage of the attendee turnout at both shows, connecting them to our exhibitors was paramount.” 


For the first time ever, the IBS NY Show featured a full roster of Master Classes in addition to Hands On Workshops.

The Master Classes are designed to provide an in-depth look of the latest skills, techniques, and styles led by elite industry artists. With an emphasis on demonstrations and insider knowledge, attendees left each class ready to elevate their services, captivate their clientele with new skills, and increase profitability. All Master Classes and Hands-On Workshops required an additional fee and included the 3-day Exhibit Hall pass with purchase.

Plus, all attendees from both events were welcome to take part in over 120 demonstration classes that were included free with the Exhibit Hall pass.

IECSC NY had its curated Conference Education – a diverse range of paid classes featuring speakers with unique expertise, all aimed at providing the essential knowledge and insights to elevate and grow businesses, as well as the free Product Focused Education offerings – informative sessions and workshops led by top exhibitors and offering a deep dive into a specific product or service.

All attendees from both events could participate in product focused sessions for no additional fee.


Say Yes to You Hub – Located on the IBS NY Show floor and available for all attendees, the Say Yes to You Hub was an area for attendees to relax and recharge, with a schedule of offerings that focused on enriching their personal well-being. On Sunday, complimentary headshots and chair massages were offered. On Monday and Tuesday, attendees experienced enriching content on mental health, gut health, emotional intelligence, body alignment, spiritual energy, and more.

What’s New for You Zone – Located on both the IBS and IECSC NY Show floors, the What’s New for You Zone was a place to check out an exciting collection of first-time exhibitors. Attendees had the opportunity try a new line, engage with a company new to the show floor, or be the first to test a product new to the market.

THE POWERHOUSE PAVILION: Celebrating Black Beauty Entrepreneurs was revitalized for 2024. The Pavilion featured stage presentations by iconic Black beauty entrepreneurs such as Faatemah Ampey, Keya Neal, and Monae Everett, plus new panel discussions, hosted by elite industry educators.

Attendees noticed strategically placed GLO Recycling bins throughout the show to collect various forms of waste including hair, plastic bottles, electronics, soaps, brushes, hair color, foil, gloves, nail polish, perfumes, aerosols, and other flammable materials.

As always, attendees had the opportunity to shop for products for their salons and spas at professionals‐only pricing and to network with industry leaders. Over 500 brands showcased their newest products and innovations in the nearly 100,000 square feet co-located space.
