The first event on Professional Beauty’s 2022 calendar – the Big Buzz Business Conference at the Bryanston Country Club – took place on 28 March and saw both the Beauty and Aesthetic Medicine Conferences sold out, with a steady flow of visitors to the table top exhibition.
Feedback from the exhibitors was very positive. The team at Spa & Salon Solutions described the event as ‘brilliant’. They continued: “We had many new clients and some out-of-towners from Parys, Botswana and Polokwane. We can’t wait for the Professional Beauty Johannesburg Show at Gallagher Convention Centre in August.”
Said Sue Vermeer of AMSCO / RefectoCil: “It was lovely to connect with clients face to face again. We made great new contacts and it was a wonderful way to educate clients about our new products.”
Afrinity’s Agelique Sebeiena Levin noted that after doing this event, she would also like to do the Professional Beauty Johannesburg Expo in August at Gallagher Convention Centre. “This is because we were happy with the visitors who came to our stand at the Bryanston event.”
Nicola Steenkamp of Best Lasers reports that her stand was very busy. “We had some good quality visitors and definite leads.”
Bio Sculpture’s Allyson Viljoen commented: “It’s was great to connect with nail techs and show them the Bio Sculpture way. We received several training enquiries, which is what we were after.”
Said Galia Motala of InLei: “This was our first show and the whole experience was wonderful.”
Chanelle Avontuur of hair brand, IntrinsiCurly Me, added: “Everything at the show went well for us and it was encouraging to see that more and more beauty salons are thinking about incorporating hair services into their menus.”
Jody Cameron of Pay for Now stated: “We were happy and super-chuffed with the event. There was lots of interest in our product.”
My Abby Abyssinan’s Robyn Kramer commented: “The beauty industry is alive again! What an incredible day to share the energy and excitement.”
Markus Bezuidenhout of Enozo Skincare added: "This was a great platform to start launching our brand.”
Six Skincare’s Tiffany Bertrassi reported that her stand generated over 35 leads. “The calibre of people visiting us has been good.”
The NaturallyE/ Rëzo team declared the show a success. “We are looking forward to the Big Buzz Business Conference in Cape Town at the end of this month.”
“The event was like the name suggested – a big buzz,” concluded Karien Ceronio of pHformula.
