After nine wonderful years at the helm of Reed’s Hair and Beauty Expos, I have decided to relocate to Europe to spend time with my family. I wish to emphasise how much I have learnt from this industry and its incredibly passionate people and I am so grateful for the many professional and personal relationships I’ve formed over the years, which I’m sure will endure”, said Julia Erben. “Hair Expo and Beauty Expo have an experienced team who are preparing amazing shows for 2018. The event programs for Beauty Expo Melbourne and Hair Expo Australia have already been finalised, with new packages, exciting brands on board, and internationals artists secured - I have no doubt that they will be fabulous shows that will serve to inspire our visitors.

Julia’s time with the Hair & Beauty portfolio saw the events move from strength to strength, with Hair Expo Australia winning ‘Best Show Overall’ at the 2016 EEAA Awards, and Beauty Expo Australia reaching huge milestones for its 2017 edition at the new International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. Julia leaves the well-regarded portfolio in a strong position moving into 2018.
