Monthly Calendar: Northwest Nailtechs Networking Retreat

Education in the Northwest can be hard to come by. To solve this problem, five years ago a group of nail techs got together to form an educational networking event. For the first three years, the event was two days of classes at a hotel, much like other networking events around across the country. Starting in 2010 the techs stepped up the event to a whole new level -- a retreat that is all inclusive for four days!

Nail techs and educators come together at a beautiful waterfront property just a ferry ride outside of Seattle for day after day of demos, hands-on classes, competitions, seminars, games, and a tradeshow filled with nail products for purchase. The 2010 event was successful with educators and attendees who attended from across the country as far as New York!

This year, a special workshop is scheduled that will increase the quality of your nails and your skill in a matter of hours. Take the opportunity to compete in Simply Salon Nails and Mixed Media competitions, which will have cash prizes and medals. If you have never competed, this is the perfect place to get your feet wet. Evenings will be filled with seminars, games, campfires, and of course open nail playtime to play with your new products or test a new trick you learned.

The cost to attend is $409, and that includes room, all meals, classes, seminars, games, raffles, and a goodie bag. A deposit can be made to lock in the price, which will go up in September.
