Celebrating its most successful event to date, this year’s expo saw a growth in exhibitors, pre-event ticket sales, registration and its largest visitor count yet.
The Salon Melbourne floor was a-buzz with excitement from not only keen visitors, but also many brands that were there to embrace the opportunity to engage with the industry. Rob Gattuso, Brand Director of Ozdare was thrilled with the overwhelming turn-out this year, and the success of his own brands at the expo.

“Salon Melbourne was a huge success for both our ELEVEN Australia and American CREW brands. The weekend enabled us to engage with our trade and consumers, and gave us a chance to show our brands exactly as we wanted them to be seen! It’s the perfect platform to showcase our education offering on the Main Stage and to launch new products. Having sold out of almost everything on the Sunday was hugely exciting and humbling for us to see that our brands were so well received. A great event to be a part of.”

Hosting the event over the exhibition weekend also means that participants and competitors will get to be amongst the exciting buzz of Salon Melbourne.
