The 2023 America’s Beauty Show (ABS) owned and produced by non-profit Cosmetologists Chicago was held this year at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, Ilinois. The event hit record attendance with about 21,000 attendees, 400 exhibitors, 300 classes, and experiences including the ABS Global Image Awards special evening event and party.
Along with a sold-out exhibitor floor, the event included The Makeup Show, co-located with ABS which hosted makeup and skincare brands, as well as in-depth education and demo sessions. The Cidesco Skincare Academy hailed esthetics education with educators from around the world.
The Runway and the Salon Innovation Stage showcased high-fashion presentations and panels.
“The energy and excitement at the event were truly inspiring, and it's clear that the future is bright in the beauty industry when we come together and stick together. Our 100th Show was the largest in our history, and we couldn't have done it without the support of the professional beauty community. It was beautiful to see so many people from all corners of the industry celebrating and connecting.”
— Frank P. Fulco, CEO of America’s Beauty Show
