Who doesn’t love a Trade Show!

The Trade Show season kicked off with a bang with Professional Beauty Manchester at the end of September. It was great to be back at an event we hadn’t attended for a while and we were super excited to meet everyone and catch up with our piercing partners face to face.

The show had an incredible atmosphere with a large number of visitors and exhibitors. It must be said that our stand looked exceptionally glamorous this year with a grey and yellow theme and two piercing stations wrapped in sliver glitter with white roses on top! We even had a selfie corner where visitors could go and check out their piercings in the mirror and take photos with our amazing selfie props.  

It was great to see Kirsty Meakin, an exceptional nail artist, educator, judge and mentor, visit our stand, who even got a piercing from or wonderful trainer Sharon. 

In early October we went on to attend one of the biggest autumn beauty shows, Olympia Beauty in London. The Olympia building was just beautiful, with the bright sun shining through. 

We loved showing our visitors how our amazing systems work and offered demonstrations so they could see the systems in action. New customers also got to test out the safety and simplicity of the system, having a go themselves on our demo ears. It was also great to showcase our new SuperBrave calendars and badges for partners to see some of the marketing packages we have on offer.  

There was definitely a lot of Studex Sparkle at both events with many new piercings! Donation proceeds totalled an incredible £2650 and will be donated to The Motor Neurone Disease Charity

We also decided to offer visitors at both events a chance to win a £150 John Lewis voucher and a Marks & Spencer hamper with our Selfie Frame Competition. Visitors had to follow our Instagram page, upload a Studex selfie post, tagging Studex and commenting using #PBStudexSelfie or #OBStudexSelfie. This competition saw some great engagement at both shows and it was such fun seeing all their social posts and happy customers with their new piercings. 

We can’t wait to attend more shows after the new year and as always, are very excited to welcome new partners to the Studex family.
