ABS Update

As the salon industry, as well as the rest of the world, faces an economic downturn not seen for decades, Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) announces a plan to help salon owners and employees through these tough times.

For America’s Beauty Show 2009, to be held March 28-30 at McCormick Place, Chicago, the association is offering the Salon Stimulus Package, including a one-year membership to America’s Beauty Network, free admission for all three days of ABS, a Product Knowledge College Passport for dozens of classes, plus discounts on Master Classes and the Saturday evening fashion event—all for $75.

“Why are we giving our attendees such a deal? One simple reason,” says Paul Dykstra, CEO of CC and ABS. “We know attending ABS will stimulate, motivate and re-energize salon professionals from throughout the country. We want to help each and every one of them build their personal and salon business—not just at the show but also throughout the year. By offering this valuable incentive we expect many more professionals will come for the entire three days of the show—which is good for our show and our exhibitors. It’s good for everyone.”

To register online for the stimulus package, visit the new website at or call 800-883-7808 or 312-494-3040.
