The event began with a welcome cocktail reception Tuesday night in Downtown Los Angeles. Photo opportunities abounded with giant hashtags, photo booths, and props. Educators, salespeople, and distributors flew into Los Angeles from all over North America. CND Brand Ambassadors including Winnie Huang, Lauren Wireman, Torie Bastian, Marian Newman, and Sarah Waite were flown in as well to celebrate.
