We have some surprises in store for those who attend one of the country’s largest and longest-running tanning industry trade show events in October. But we’re keeping things secret until Smart Tan’s 2009 Indoor Tanning Industry Convention and Trade Show kicks off Oct. 9th at the Downtown Nashville Renaissance Hotel and Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn. ETS Tan will exhibit in booths 9, 131, and 600 on the convention floor throughout the trade show, which runs through Oct. 11. As always, prizes, special offers and incentives will be awarded throughout the event.
The theme of the show this year is “Smart Tan Downtown: Driving the 2010 Tanning Boom.” Smart Tan plans to roll out a massive program to expedite the coming boom in indoor tanning, a program intended to empower everyone in the tanning industry community to take part in a UV revolution. Smart Tan believes everyone in the industry – from salon employees, owners and managers to manufacturers and suppliers – can play a role in promoting the fact that tanning is natural and intended, raising the industry’s commitment to vitamin D research and awareness programs and promote the overall pro-sun message.
The conference’s keynote speaker will be Garrison Wynn of consulting firm Wynn Solutions. An experienced actor in films and a former professional stand-up comedian, he has hosted national TV specials and radio programs. As a keynote speaker, advisor and entertainer, Garrison has worked with some of the world’s most effective corporate leaders and salespeople, from multibillion-dollar manufacturers to top New York Stock Exchange wire houses. He has a background in manufacturing, entertainment, telecommunications, and financial services.
Other speakers include Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council and health education expert and independent sunlight advocate Dr. Marc Sorenson.
