IMATS NYC - April 9-10 2011

IMATS NYC - April 9-10 2011

Are you guys ready? Because I sure am! I already purchased my tickets for IMATS in NYC and I am gearing up to go. I am excited for the demos and the speakers...and maybe the makeup...but I don't plan on breaking the bank at all. I hope to see some of you guys there! Maybe we can do a meet up and have lunch or something. Let me know fancies!

Here's a link to all the DETAILS!

The wait is finally over: The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show is coming to New York in 2011. IMATS NYC will be held April 9-10 at 82 Mercer in SoHo. 82 Mercer, located across the street from Bloomingdale's, has become one of SoHo's most sought-after event-hosting spots. IMATS NYC will feature the usual mix of world-class speakers, educators, demonstrations, exhibitors, a museum and student competition and much more.

 The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show is the make-up world’s biggest gathering. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film (including Oscar, BAFTA and Saturn award winners) provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. The show is held six times annually — in London in January;  New York in April; Los Angeles in June; Vancouver, B.C. in July; Sydney in September and Toronto in November.

  12. Hi! My name is Karen T. Salva and I am a make up artist from L.A. I just moved here and was really looking forward to going to the show. I'm looking to get into the local 798 here and I was in the union back in LA. I recently did work for American Idol this year along with other professional experience throughout the years. I googled IMATS for this year and your site came up. I was hoping you knew a way for me to get into the show this Saturday. Also, I wanted to network with you in regards to work. I've seen your work from when I was back in L.A. and would love more than to be able to work with you and talk to you about how it is out here.
    I know this is very last minute, but I am just trying to explore all my options at this point. Thank you so much and either way, would love to hear from you soon!
