The Allied Beauty Association is most known for it’s hugely popular ABA Beauty Shows, held in five major Canadian cities each year. These shows bring together some of the major Canadian professional beauty industry suppliers and are consequently, the largest and most attended beauty trade shows in Canada. The ABA national show attendance averages more than 30,000 beauty professionals annually.
As an additional draw for beauty professionals, the ABA provides a wide range of educational seminars featuring prominent speakers and educators from around the world. Between the ABA main stage presentations and classroom seminars, there is enough variety to satisfy even the most discerning beauty professional.
Most beauty industry insiders consider the ABA Shows to be the most important trade shows of the year. They deliver an international standard of education that would otherwise be unavailable to the average salon professional.
To exhibit at any of the ABA Shows you must be a member of the Allied Beauty Association.
