THESE DO NOT COUNT FOR CEU'S

Extended Workshops - Friday, July 10th, 2020

These Extended Workshops are held offsite (not at the Gatlinburg Convention Center) & are SANCTIONED by The Event Management

These approved offsite Workshops are offered to extend the show weekend & expand your educational experience. Registration is optional & not included with your show ticket; payment is made directly to each company. 

Licensed beauty pro's & current beauty school students only - not open to the public.

Any classes held offsite that are NOT listed here are piggybacking off our show & looking to make a quick buck off unsuspecting nail techs - please do not support this sneaky & unethical behavior as it harms all sanctioned companies.
