Announcing 2021 Beauty Business Summit


We were just as disappointed as you were when we rescheduled the 2020 Beauty Business Summit to October 3-4, 2021.

You likely spent a great deal of time at home in the last year and now you’re ready for something big! And, we want to give you something to look forward to. You’ve earned it.

Get out of the house.

Get out of the treatment room. 

And discover…Summit!

We can’t wait to roll out the red carpet and deliver a world-class experience that includes two days of learning and masterminding with the best in the beauty industry.

What You Can Expect at the 2021 Beauty Business Summit

You can expect the ultimate guest experience that you deserve when you attend the Beauty Business Summit! You are our guest.

We decided to keep the 2021 Summit smaller by adjusting the maximum attendance from 150 to 100 people. 

This means fewer tickets are available. 

Attendees who purchased tickets for the 2020 event were automatically rolled over to 2021, so there’s a limited number of new tickets available for purchase. 

The Beauty Business Summit VIP Experience 

The VIP Summit experience will be exceptional this year. We take care of all the details so you can focus on gaining new knowledge and connecting with like-minded beauty professionals. The VIP ticket also includes exclusive seating by the stage so you’ll literally get front row seating to all the excitement!

We’re including exquisite meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and a room for two nights (October 2 and 3) at the historic Don Cesar Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida, where the event will also take place. You are welcome to extend your stay and reserve additional nights with our group rate based on availability.

The VIP Private Yacht Sunset Cruise

Your VIP ticket includes a private yacht sunset cruise experience. After a meet-and-greet event with all attendees, VIP ticket holders will hop on a quick motorcoach ride to the private yacht for a sunset dinner cruise on the Gulf of Mexico. The private yacht is sponsored by Michael Pugliese and Circadia Skincare.

The Beauty Business Summit General Admission Experience 

We have designed the general admission experience for those who wish to attend the event on a different budget or perhaps live nearby and don’t need hotel accommodations.

This general admission experience is carefully crafted to include catered lunch on both days of Summit. Plus, light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served during the meet-and-greet on October 3, after the first day of learning.

Bid For A Chance To Win A LightStim LED Panel

This is our first time doing a live auction at Summit! It will be fun and an exciting chance for you to go home with a LightStim LED panel! All ticket holders are eligible to bid for a chance to win the LED panel and experience wellness in a new light. 

Imagine your very own LightStim panel!

Starting bid will be $2000! Richard Maher, Director of Education for LightStim will be your auctioneer. Proceeds go toward the Beauty Business Summit Grant!

Experience Beauty Brands

There will be plenty of breaks in between speakers so that you get a chance to meet and experience brands up close and personal. Have conversations with the owners in a relaxed and uplifting environment.

Beauty brands participating this year are; Confidence By Char, Circadia Skincare, Smooth Skin Supply, Holistic Dermal Professionals, SculptIce, LightStim, Viktoria DeAnn, Oncology Spa Solutions, and Nerida Joy.

We are grateful and delighted for the many brands who are participating this year. 

The $20,000 Spa Business Owner Grant

The Beauty Business Summit shifted its mission is to stimulate the economy and give back. We’re honored to gift a $20,000 grant to TWO beauty businesses ($10,000 each) who demonstrate exceptional leadership after the year we’ve had.

The grant includes two $10,000 cash prizes. See official rules here. This grant would not be possible if it weren’t for Char Fontanills, CEO of Confidence By Char. Once she heard of the BBS Grant shift from a beauty school to a spa owner, she immediately contacted Maxine Drake and offered to match the already $10,000 grant making it possible for two winners!

The Beauty School Grant application opens on April 26, 2021, and closes on June 21, 2021. Licensed beauty business owners are encouraged to submit a 3-minute video explaining how they plan to use the grant, what positive changes will occur in their community. The BBS judging panel will select 5 finalists based on their video presentation and vision for their winnings.

Five finalists will be invited to Summit to showcase their vision to the BBS attendees.

All attendees at the Beauty Business Summit will vote for their favorite spa owner on October 3, 2021, and the winners will be announced on October 4, 2021! It’s quite an exhilarating experience!
