Supporting the future talent, and showcasing the achievements of the hairdressing industry, it was inevitable that the Fellowship for British Hairdressing were going to be at Salon International 2017. So as you can imagine, we were thrilled to be invited to build, manage and capture their stand for the very first time. Bringing a fresh new feel to 2017, we built an impressive 43,300 sq/ft stand that not only showcased the 50+ shows over the weekend, but also helped draw in all of the crowds to the shows.
With so many brands all under one roof, it really was a who’s who of hairdressing, with many of the industry’s familiar names hosting and performing, judging the competitions, peeking backstage and joining the audience.
Though it is estimated that Salon International had an impressive 40,000 guests walk through it’s doors over the weekend, that made up just 35% of the viewing audience that watched the Fellowship shows. An additional 100,000 viewers tuned in to watch our live videos being streamed on the Fellowship’s Facebook page.
Fellowship for British Hairdressing Chairman, Jo Martin said “Our vision for Salon International 2017 was to create a fresh new approach to our stand. We wanted a well designed and produced platform for our Fellowship Sponsors and Members to demonstrate their creative talents. Working with the CS Media team for a number of years, I couldn’t think of anyone better to support us. We have some exciting new events for Fellowship in 2018 and cannot wait to work with the CS Media team again.”
