I'm a firm believer in life-long education, in whatever form that takes. One of the best parts of being in the beauty industry is the opportunity to attend trade shows, seminars, hands-on classes and networking events with my peers and industry leaders. It's something I'm passionate about, as most of my clients know. Not only do I feel it is important to stay on top of ever-evolving trends and techniques in the industry, it truly inspires and re-energizes me, and keeps me connected.
Since most of the great nails shows are not held in Canada, I have partnered with another nail tech to host one in Southern Ontario every November. It was her dream to start an event 'for nail techs, by nail techs' to focus on bringing the knowledge of popular brands and education right to their doorsteps without the investment of so much money and time off for travelling. I am proud to say this year together we will host the Fourth Annual CNTC Nail Tech Networking Event in London, ON on Sunday November 4th, 2012.
If you are a nail tech reading this and you live in Ontario, you NEED to get to this show. We have negotiated an excellent room rate with the Ramada Inn in London, which is where the show is being held this year. Arrive Saturday and attend our informal and fun Meet & Greet in the hotel that evening! Then get ready for a fabulous day of door-prize giveaways, nail art, demos and making lots of new friends in the industry.
Here are the details. We also have a Facebook Group - do a search for CNTC and you'll find us. I hope you will join us this year!
