A quick overview of why you should attend industry events. 

Finder research in May this year found that 6% of Australians – equivalent to 1.2 million people – have had plastic surgery in the past 12 months. According to Statista women in Australia usually spend about $3,600 on the beauty industry every year. After going through a minor income fall in 2020, the market got back on its feet the following year. As revenue increased to a staggering $8.601 million in 2022, predictions reveal an even bigger growth in profit in the next few years. Actually, the beauty industry’s size should go up by 3.10% between 2022 and 2026.

The point is the beauty and aesthetic industry is booming, it’s a thriving industry with exponential potential and opportunity. The single easiest and most effective way become a successful clinician, therapist, business owner and tap into the opportunities within the industry, is to learn from the experts.

In the beauty and aesthetic industry specifically our leaders and experts love to share their knowledge, conferences are where incredibly successful business owners and remarkable experts come together to discuss important matters. These topics range from the latest technologies, to medical complications and new laws all matters you need to know about and understand. With the 2023 ABIC Educational conference on the horizon to kick-start the year, industry professionals are gearing up for this must-attend event. However, anyone who has yet to attend an industry conference may be unaware of all the benefits to be gained. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits that industry conferences can deliver to learn why they are valued so highly.

Increase Knowledge

Professionals rarely get the time to speak extensively with their peers on the issues affecting an industry. However, the opportunity to discuss important issues with knowledgeable industry experts will inevitably lead to breakthroughs.

Develop Industry Relationships

Are you seeking new industry relationships? Know that networking is one of the primary reasons for attending an industry conference. While there is certainly competition within the industry, beauty & aesthetic conferences feature various professionals from across the space who are looking for new partnerships. For example, a natural collaboration can be built when one business owner provides services that are in high demand by another.

Get a break from the daily grind

For so many in the beauty & aesthetic industry, recent years have minimised in-person contact. Countless businesses have become used to working from behind a computer, without the ability to communicate face-to-face. Conferences are an opportunity to step outside this routine, re-energize – and acquire valuable information. And for those who cannot attend the live event, virtual attendance will make it possible to stay on top of the important news.

Content Creation

Content creation is an important part of online promotion, and an industry conference is a goldmine for attendees. It could be possible to develop articles, vlogs, tutorials, social media posts and more, depending on the type of content a business usually creates. In addition, combining content creation with networking could lead to high-quality material, including videos and podcasts.

Learn About New Innovations

One important reason why you would join the Aesthetic Beauty Industry Council is to stay up-to-date on innovations and news. Attending an industry conference is the perfect place to learn about the latest advancements from educated speakers and industry professionals. It’s a way to seek out the best, most reliable information. It can be hard to parse information gleaned from social media and blogs, but in-person interactions with experienced professionals helps attendees gather solidly vetted industry information.

An Opportunity for Deals

Making deals involves building a relationship and developing trust – but when you cannot communicate in person, building relationships is made more difficult. Beauty & Aesthetic conferences facilitate relationships and forge partnerships that offer mutually beneficial outcomes.

Get Motivated

Growing a business requires a great deal of motivation and hard work, but there will always be times when an individual may feel uninspired. Industry conferences are the perfect place to get some much-needed motivation to push forward with new plans. With tributes, awards, networking and the sharing of knowledge. You will realise most business owners and clinicians have the same challenges and you are doing an incredible job. Conferences are empowering, promote confidence and inspire newbies and veterans alike.

The ABIC community looks forward to welcoming you to the in-augural ABIC educational conference of 2023.
