Elevate Your Salon Business at the Annual Salon Owners Summit

Do you have plans in January? We do, and you’re invited. Phorest is hosting our 8th annual Salon Owners Summit on January 7th and 8th, 2024, in Dublin, Ireland. The two-day event will bring together some of the biggest names in the salon industry to discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities facing salon owners today.

With up to 600 salon owners and professionals travelling worldwide for inspiration, growth and networking, the Salon Owners Summit is the leading event for those looking to invest in education and meet with industry experts and leaders. Phorest is celebrating our 20th birthday this year, and we intend to throw a party worthy of the occasion.

These are a few of the speakers we can reveal for now, but the list doesn’t stop here. 

Attendees can expect an international line-up of speakers, guaranteed to motivate and help elevate their salon to the next level. Phorest will announce even more speakers over the next few weeks.

The Salon Owners Summit is the perfect way to kickstart the year ahead.

There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to ask questions, share their experiences, and connect with other salon owners. Last year’s Summit attendees were also the first to hear about the Phorest features in our Summer Collection. Joining this year guarantees you’ll be in the know about all the exciting innovations Phorest has up our sleeves for 2024. 

As Ronan Perceval, CEO of Phorest said,

“There’s a reason why the Salon Owners Summit is my favourite time of year. It is an incredible two days with electric energy. Salon owners travel from all over the world, including the US, Canada, Germany, Finland, Ireland, and the UK, all looking for the same thing: to elevate their business. Attendees will also be the first to know and get access to our latest features and tech innovations to help make the day-to-day in the salon that bit easier”.
