Beauty Expo Australia, the national event for the professional beauty industry, has announced that tickets for its 2018 edition are now available. The show will return to the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney’s Darling Harbour on September 8th and 9th, 2018.

Event Director Cory Watson says that Beauty Expo Australia is set for an even more impressive event in 2018, after a hugely successful 2017 expo. “With more than two months to go until Beauty Expo Australia opens its doors, we have already confirmed more than 150 exhibitors, many with multiple brands, that will bring their innovations in skincare, makeup, grooming, and nails for our visitors to explore. We know that a lot of the discoveries that our visitors make at Beauty Expo assist with salon success for the year ahead, and that the event’s inspiring education in the latest trends can provide a competitive advantage in what can be an increasingly challenging market for many businesses.

New halls for big brands

For the first time this year, MAC Cosmetics will join its line-up of beauty brands participating in the event. “MAC will bring its famed professional products and global educators to the event, including 2018 headline speaker Nicole ‘Pinky’ Thompson,” announced the organizers.

Beauty Expo Australia will showcase brands covering all beauty categories: skincare, makeup, grooming, nails and salon-relevant technology. Some of the brands that visitors will see on the show floor this year include Mancine Cosmetics, Dermalux LED, Ultraceuticals, France Medical, Murad Australia, Pelactiv, Caronlab Australia, INGLOT Cosmetics, Makeup Net, Crown Brush, Image Skincare, TechnoTan, Pure Fiji, Lycon Cosmetics, Comfortel Furniture, Pevonia Botanica, Young Nails Australia, MODELROCK Lashes, Bodecare, Lashd App, and so many more. Visitors can see the full list of exhibitors on the Beauty Expo Australia website.

Educational program

In addition to MAC’s ‘Pinky’ Thompson, other headline speakers for Beauty Expo Australia 2018 include leading customer service trainer, Julie Piantadosi, who will lead two of the event’s business education sessions. Julie will share her knowledge on juggling life and work for small business owners, as well as showing beauty professionals successful selling skills.

International educator David ‘Brow’ Zhang also returns in 2018 to share his expertise in brows, cosmetic tattooing and microblading. David will hold two sessions over the course of the weekend on the trending topic of microblading, where he will demonstrate his special 6D brow techniques.

While single sessions can be purchased, Beauty Expo’s curated educational sessions on topics in dermal therapy/anti-ageing, professional skills, and business are also complemented by education passes, priced at $210 early bird/$240 full price, enabling visitors to attend all educational seminars in the corresponding stream (up to nine sessions per stream) during the two-day event. 

Early bird pricing is available until midnight Friday 27 July 2018 at
