Word on the show floor was that this year's Premiere Orlando show was a big success for many of the manufacturers. We stopped by the booths of old friends and some new ones to see what was new and talk about priorities for the industry. The prevailing focus seemed to be on education, as each company seeks unique ways to help the nail tech use its products better and more successfully.
