Salon and Spa Networking Lunch At Professional Beauty

  • Delforge + Co London uk (map)

New for 2018, a dedicated forum where salon and spa professionals can discuss challenges and share solutions among like-minded colleagues and industry experts.

Salon and spa directors, as well as sole traders, are invited to join a networking lunch where they can discuss challenges and share solutions among like-minded professionals.

The lunch will run from 12:15 to 3:15pm on Sunday 21st October at Professional Beauty North, at Manchester Central, and participants are encouraged to submit topics and questions in advance. There will be a speed-networking session to give operators an opportunity to speak one on one with senior figures from key brands, with a champagne reception to finish. Attendees will also receive a goody bag featuring products from the event sponsors.

Attendees can ask anything they like to our experts but the discussions will be divided into individual tables focusing on the following topics and attendees can participate in two of the following discussions:

  1. Staff management – recruiting and retaining the best talent

  2. Retention marketing to improve customer loyalty

  3. Retailing – tried and true retail strategies to increase revenue

  4. Low cost competition – how to respond to cut-price rivals

  5. Operations and finance - mastering your P&L and boosting your profits

Each discussion will be hosted by an experienced salon and spa owner and industry expert and we already have some great names confirmed, including:
