Scheduled to take place on October 13-15 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, the conference and expo will commence each day with one of its popular General Sessions and, as usual, will present an eclectic series of accomplished speakers. Erik Wahl, former corporate executive turned internationally recognized graffi ti artist, author and speaker, will kick off the event with an on-stage painting presentation to inform and challenge the audience. Day two will feature Mike Walsh, CEO of consumer innovation research lab Tomorrow and considered authority on 21st-century business. And winding up the series on the last day will be famed singer/songwriter Jewel, whose passion for the arts ultimately led her to become involved in numerous philanthropic efforts. A highlight of the three-day event will be the presentation of the Visionary Award to beauty industry leader and innovator Jane Iredale, founder, president and CEO of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics. "The opportunity to personally call Jane to tell her she was this year's recipient was such a special moment," noted ISPA chairman Michael Tompkins. "She is beyond deserving of this honor." ISPA-goers will also have the opportunity to: browse the showroom fl oor and become familiar with the latest wares from top spa product manufacturers around the globe; expand their knowledge and skill sets with a wide selection of enlightening classes and demonstrations; network with colleagues at numerous social events; and even participate in some good-humored bidding wars at the ISPA Foundation Auction.
