Proof of Vaccination Will No Longer Be Required to Enter 2022 IBS and IECSC NY as COVID Mandates Lifted at the Javits Center

IBS and IECSC NY Shows Return to the Javits Center in NYC March 13-15

NEW YORK, March 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Questex’s International Beauty Show New York (IBS New York) and The International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference (IECSC) New York announced today that proof of COVID-19 vaccinations will no longer be required for in-person attendees at their 2022 Shows at the Javits Center. These changes will come into effect in NYC as of March 7, 2022.

This update is based on Mayor Eric Adam’s announcement that New Yorkers no longer need to provide proof of vaccination upon entry of indoor public spaces and the Javits Center will follow suit with lifting COVID-19 regulations on March 7 (including mask and vaccine mandates) to reflect the city-wide change.

“We look forward to bringing the beauty & spa communities back to the Javits Center in New York City and providing an engaging and memorable experience, said Liz Hitchcock, event director for IBS and IECSC. “Safety is our top priority, and we can’t wait to reconnect and reignite the true passion that only in-person events like IBS NY and IECSC NY can deliver.”

The International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference (IECSC) New York is largest professionals-only spa and wellness show on the East Coast and is the perfect place for professionals to source the latest products, learn about new technologies and develop relationships with companies that move the industry.

International Beauty Show New York (IBS New York) is the nation’s longest-running professionals-only beauty show and draws thousands of industry members each year.

Professionals at both Shows will have the opportunity to walk through miles of exhibits and learn unique techniques through invaluable in‐booth demonstrations by some of the top artists and experts in the industry. As always, attendees will have the opportunity to shop for products for their salons at professionals‐only pricing and to network with industry leaders.
