August 7, 2017 | 9:48 AM

As the rate of change in how consumers learn about, buy and experience beauty products and services continues to accelerate, developing strategies and tactics that ensure multi-unit salons and spas and their industry partners can anticipate the next steps is critical to sustainability and long-term profitability. The International SalonSpa Business Network’s next conference, “Future-Proof Your Business,” on May 6-8, 2018, will provide attendees with the information they need to develop their go-forward plans.

“The most important benefits of our conference and association are sharing with and learning from each other,” says ISBN President Rhoda Olsen. “At the 2018 Conference, our content and education will continue to be driven by our members and vendor partners—who work in the beauty business every day—to ensure it’s meaningful for each of our companies.

The May 2017 ISBN Conference hosted leaders from the largest multi-unit salon and spa companies, as well as the most influential regional groups from key markets, across North America. Hyper-engaged hair and beauty leaders sat shoulder-to-shoulder with vendors, thought-leaders and their peers during open discussions, moderated MasterMind forums and powerhouse keynotes. The interactive format at ISBN lets attendees direct the conversation to topics that matter to them the most.

“ISBN’s Annual Conference is the only industry forum in which executives from multi-unit salon and spa companies can get real answers to their challenges and questions,” says Scott Missad, CEO of Gene Juarez Salon & Spa and a member of the ISBN Conference Committee. “Where else can you sit next to people who are walking in your shoes every day and collaborate to develop the best solutions and go-forward strategies?”

“As an industry, our success will be found when we can stand together and set our future direction,” adds Olsen. “Together, we will look to the horizon armed with the meaningful data and action plans that we need to help our people and our businesses grow by delighting our clients with memorable experiences.”
