LEE’S SUMMIT, MO – The second annual “Mind Your Business” Owners and Operators Retreat left attendees with only one question: When is the next one? Heartland Tanning’s industry event brought salon owners and tanning product manufacturers together with a winning combination of networking, fun and relaxation.
This year’s event was again held at the Elms Historic Hotel & Spa in Excelsior Springs, MO allowing attendees to enjoy the venue’s amenities during the pool party, paranormal tours and making s’mores, as well as offsite excursions during the Poker Pub Crawl. This year, networking opportunities were expanded to two days and concluded with a “Studio 54-themed” party celebrating Heartland’s 40th anniversary.
“It brings us so much joy to host this unique event for the second year,” stated Tammy Reed, Vice President of Distribution. “We have been hosting shows for over 25 years and have observed the need for it among our salon partners over the last several years. We all work so hard in-season, so we knew we needed 1) an event that forces us to have some much-needed relaxation and downtime, and 2) an organized networking opportunity for salon owners, manufacturers and Heartland staff without the pressures of buying something. As long as Heartland continues to get the support of salon operators and manufacturers, we will continue on with this format and top it each and every year. We absolutely love meeting new people, putting faces with names and visiting with our loyal, wonderful customers!”
In today’s environment, Heartland has been committed to helping salons through these summer months with profitability and continued education. Heartland recommends that you join the “Heartland Presents” Facebook group and mailing list to take advantage of the savings and stay informed about upcoming podcast events.
“Plans are already underway for 2023 Heartland Presents – Mind Your Business 3!” Reed concluded.
Since 1997, IST Magazine (formerly known as Island Sun Times) has been committed to the success of salon professionals, while promoting the growth of the tanning industry as a whole.
