Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort  Phoenix, AZ
October 23-25, 2016


The Vietnamese salon industry’s ONLY networking event for salon owners, beauty suppliers and nail product manufacturers.



Brought to you by:
VietSALON Exchange is the only professional networking event for the Vietnamese salon market.

The Vietnamese salon industry is unique, so we have designed a unique event to bring large Vietnamese salon owners and distributors together with nail product manufacturers in a setting that will enhance business relationship-building. This is an opportunity for volume product buyers to meet product manufacturers and learn more about each other's business challenges. There will be no hard sales pitches; just a well-paced business conference in a beautiful, relaxed setting.

"VietSALON Exchange sẽ là nơi những thủ lĩnh của kỹ nghệ móng Việt họp mặt để cùng trao đổi các ý tưởng, các cách thực hiện và những thử thách trong kinh doanh. VietSALON Exchange không phải là một hội chợ thương mại hay một hội nghị, đây là một sự kiện không giống như bất cứ những sự kiện nào trước đây mà quý vị đã từng biết trong kỹ nghệ móng."

Anh Tran, Tổng Biên Tập VietSALON

Salon Owners and Distributors:


Who should apply to attend:

  • Vietnamese distributors or Vietnamese beauty supply store owners

VietSALON Exchange (VSX) brings the top product manufacturers directly to you for structured networking, intimate discussions, and presentations.

We've scheduled work time, but there will also be time to enjoy the glorious weather of Phoenix in October.

You will not only meet fellow salon owners and distributors who speak your language, you'll enjoy educational sessions that address your specific business needs. We'll have presentations on trends in salon services, marketing, and regulations.

*Complimentary airfare, hotel stay, meals during program, roundtrip transfers to hotel from Phoenix airport.

Each salon owner/distributor guest receives a custom-made, personalized agenda that offers:

  • Insights and advice from leaders in the industry
  • Interactive roundtable discussions with industry peers
  • One-on-one consultations with top nail product manufacturers
  • Unique, engaging, and memorable social functions

We will select applicants who will be offered hosted travel to attend.

If you're thinking, "This sounds great. Is it really free?" Yes, if you are a Vietnamese salon owner or distributor, you will be our guest if you are selected after we review your application. We will pay for your airfare, hotel, roundtrip transfers between the airport and resort hotel, and all scheduled meals.

"How do I get involved?" Simple: Tell us a little about yourself. Fill out the application form below. Because we want the environment to be intimate and allow everyone time to meet each other, we are limiting space. Fill out the application quickly and let us know you're interested.



Become a Sponsor Host at VietSALON Exchange

VietSALON has an established following and excellent relationships with Vietnamese salon owners and distributors.

We are inviting a small and very select group of Vietnamese salon owners and distributors who are volume buyers.

We are holding this first event at The Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, where the scenery is gorgeous, the weather is perfect, and the atmosphere is conducive to networking.

You will meet potential new customers and possibly some existing customers. You can talk to Vietnamese salon owners and distributors candidly about their business needs and how they want to interact with your company. The Vietnamese nail market is more diverse than ever and this is your chance to understand it in a concentrated period of time and one-on-one meetings.

  • We've planned exceptional networking opportunities in an intimate setting.
  • You will have the opportunity to build long-term relationships.
  • You will receive deep information on every attendee so you can follow up with even those attendees you don't talk to in person.
