On Sunday 21st October, Professional Beauty North will host a dedicated forum for salon and spa professionals to discuss business challenges and share solutions among like-minded colleagues, industry experts and leading brands.

New for 2018, the initiative will take place alongside the leading beauty and spa exhibition at Manchester Central, aiming to help professionals in the industry to improve their businesses through collaborative discussion and problem-solving.

Salon and spa owners and managers, as well as sole traders, are invited to put business-related challenges and questions to the experts in a round-table discussion format. Key topics will include:

Staff management – recruiting and retaining the best talent

Retention marketing to improve customer loyalty

Retailing – tried and true retail strategies to increase revenue

Lost cost competition – how to respond to cut-price rivals

Operations and finance – mastering your P&L and boosting your profits

Participants are encouraged to submit their own topics and questions in advance, and will have the chance to seek advice from leading experts, including Valerie Delforge, business strategist and former head of spa for Steiner and Liz Holmes, founder and director of Commercial Spa Strategies.

The session will include a speed-networking portion to give operators an opportunity to speak one-on-one with senior figures from key brands, such as Elemis, IIAA, Image Skincare, Payot and Susan Routledge Consultancy, with a Champagne reception to finish.

Tickets are £27.50 + VAT per person, including lunch, a Champagne reception and a goody bag featuring products from the event sponsors. Find out more and book your place at or click here to register for your ticket to Professional Beauty North.
