​Q) Is there a dress code?

Please wear business-casual appropriate clothes.

Candid photos will appear in trade magazines & on the web.
Please make an effort to represent our nail industry with dignity.

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 4 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 by looking ignorant. 
Dress professionally at this business function.

Q) Can beauty school students attend?​


Group discounts are a reward to Instructors purchasing 6+ tickets before June 30th (must be purchased together at once), otherwise prevailing ticket prices apply to everyone equally.


Students must show student ID or paperwork w/school letterhead indicating they are a current or recently graduated student.

*apprentices cannot be admitted due to the inability to verify them with the state.

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

The piggybacking of offsite classes is not permitted. 
This sneaky behavior hurts ALL the legit companies who booked at the GCC. It takes nail techs away from sanctioned, onsite classes causing the legit companies to lose money. 

 Please do NOT support any offsite classes.  

​Q) Is my ticket transferrable?

 But we can not make name changes for you. ​​
Click on "transfer it?" ticket image (above) to transfer your ticket into another licensed beauty pro's name.

*to prohibit the reselling of 1 ticket multiple times, the name on the ticket MUST match the name on the beauty license &/or photo ID shown at the door upon check-in.
