Description
The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show is the make-up world?s biggest gathering. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film (including Oscar, BAFTA and Saturn award winners) provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. IMATS also features a make-up museum and an Afterglow party, where trade-show guests can socialize. Before IMATS, there were no trade shows specifically designed for make-up artists, although cosmetic companies had expressed a desire for such an event. In response, Make-Up Artist magazine publisher Michael Key held the first IMATS in August 1997 in Los Angeles. It allowed artists to customize what they wanted to see and it offered a diverse mix of products, demonstrations and education from industry leaders.

So much is involved in planning for a trade show. Among the many decisions show producers and exhibit planners must make is whether to rent or purchase the technology required for a successful show or exhibit booth. When weighing these options, it’s important to consider not only the expense involved in procuring this equipment, but also the time, freight, logistics, and staffing required to set up and break down your own technology.
