Our Atlanta Meet the Maker Event was well attended. Salons took time away from their salons on a Saturday morning to brush up on product knowledge and gear up for tanning season. Susan Carlton from New Sunshine Brands (Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, California Tan, and Designer Skin), Gina Jaeger and Maggie Curran from Sun Evolutions (Supre, Pro Tan, Hempz and Snooki), and Jacob Hale from Norvell Sunless gave presentations to guest on not only new products but also tips to help them succeed this year.
Heartland staff Bill Mandry, Jeff Valaska, and Chanda Anderson were also in attendance to help with parts and distribution questions. Bill Mandry said “It was a great show, everyone had a good time. I was impressed to see all the salon staff in attendance and the distance salons traveled to be there. It is good to see salons investing in their employees and business.” Chanda Anderson said “It is always nice to see familiar faces and spend time with my customers. I love the relationships we have built over the years and the new ones that are forming. The information that was given by our vendors was valuable and at the right time. I’m so glad that Heartland along with our vendors are there to support our salon business partners.”
Each attendee went home with samples and some full-size products. We want to thank each and every salon that attended. Our customers are the heart of our Heartland business.
