Beauty and spa therapy company CIDESCO has announced open registration for its 64th World Congress which will take place in Dublin, Ireland from September 22nd to September 26th, 2016. Expected to attract delegates from around the world, this prestigious event provides the opportunity to discuss the industry’s most important issues, learn new skills and network.

Organized by CIDESCO Section Ireland, the theme for the congress is “Into the Deep,” and will consist of five days of events, including a CIDESCO Examiners’ Meeting, Schools’ Meeting, General Assembly (by invitation only) and two days of Professional Beauty Exhibition & Lecture programs open to trade visitors. Lectures will feature renowned world speakers who will discuss the latest trends, procedures, ingredients, business management skills and financial advice. Exhibitors will also benefit from exposure to the highest concentration of beauty industry decision makers in Ireland, in a forum dedicated to educational excellence.

During the Congress, guests will be able to enjoy the best of Irish hospitality through a program of social events, including a welcome reception, a fun-filled Irish evening at a traditional Irish Pub, and a spectacular Gala Dinner at Dublin’s Doubletree by Hilton where CIDESCO members and guests will celebrate the organization’s 70th anniversary.

Announcing the opening of the CIDESCO World Congress 2016 registration, Sheila Curran, President of Section Ireland says, “Section Ireland is honored to host the CIDESCO International Congress in September 2016. It’s a huge challenge as well as a privilege and the stage is now set for what promises to be an amazing event, with the perfect blend of work and play! 2016 is a key year in Irish history as we celebrate 100 years of Independence. Dublin has never looked so good and the city is alive with the buzz of celebrations. We have been so lucky to be able to tap into this for our congress. A fantastic program has been organized and, in partnering with Professional Beauty for our congress exhibition, it is certain to be a huge success. Our goal is to deliver a dynamic and different CIDESCO World Congress. I am confident that we will achieve this.”

CIDESCO International President, Anna-Cari Gund added, “Dublin, with its warm hospitality and easy access, is the perfect location to be hosting our 64th World Congress and the 70th anniversary of CIDESCO. We are looking forward to seeing many of our members and welcoming new recruits while we work together in ensuring high standards throughout the industry.”
