Cuccio Holds Education and Distributor Summit in Costa Rica

Cuccio Luxury Spa Products held its seventh annual Cuccio Latin America Summit in Costa Rica this year. Costa Rica represents one of the most versatile and successful Cuccio sales and education teams led by Cuccio distributor Oscar Villalobos and international educator Eileen Vega. Together, they have built the Cuccio brand throughout several Latin American territories.

“The decision to work with Oscar and his team was one of the best I have made in my 35 years in the nail industry,” says Tony Cuccio, CEO and founder. “The energy and vision this group brings to our global brand is a true testament to the Cuccio effect!”

The Cuccio Costa Rican Summit is one of the company’s largest. With over 250 nail technicians and distributors, the gathering brings together Cuccio teams from countries like Nicaragua, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, and Paraguay.

“I travel all over the world for Cuccio but there is something very special about coming to this summit,” says Marilyn Garcia, head of education and research for Cuccio. “The Latin culture brings with it a unique level of passion and emotion that you just can’t teach. And it is high energy from the second we begin until the salsa music stops at our closing party — usually late into the night!”

At this year’s summit, Garcia focused on the new Cuccio Pro Nudecrylics, Powder Polish, and Odorless Acrylic lines. There were several hands-on classes where nail technicians learned about new design techniques and services, as well as the trademark inspirational speech given by Tony Cuccio.

Cuccio’s next international summit will be the 2018 Asian Summit, which will be held in Malaysia.
