Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

​This is OUR world.......where nail techs are the stars!

Q) Is there a dress code?

A) Please wear
business-casual, work appropriate clothes.

DO NOT dress in hootchie club attire - dress for success!

Candid photos will appear in trade magazines & on the web.

Please do not look ignorant.

Our motto: "When in doubt, don't wear it out"!  

Still unsure?

Here are some tasteful guidelines:

       Capris & walking shorts are fine. 
           Mini skirts & Daisy Dukes are not! 
       Cleavage should be covered - 
includes the rear cleavage, too! 
       Stomachs are not to be bared.
      Bras & underwear should be worn under your clothing.
        Clothing should fit your body, not be 2 sizes too small.  

We each have our own "problem areas" (be it fat rolls or cellulite).

We don't need to see yours.

Please don't embarrass yourself or others.

Dress professionally!

Q.) Will Classes be held outside of the Gatlinburg Convention Center? 

A.) NO! Workshops will only be held onsite, otherwise they are considered "piggybacking".

This sneaky behavior hurts ALL the legitimate companies because it pulls nail techs away 

from taking the sanctioned classes held onsite. This causes companies to lose money. 

Lost income causes nail companies NOT to return in the future, which will cause The Event

to shrink. ALL nail techs will suffer for it in the end, so please do not support offsite

piggybacking classes at any show or event.

We WILL notify ALL the sanctioned nail companies if

we hear of anyone holding offsite classes! 

Q.) Can I sign up for Monday Workshop Classes DURING the show?

A) MAYBE/MAYBE NOT - classes may be canceled due to low registration OR classes may sell out. C
ompanies need to know in advance how much class products to ship to the GCC.
