Dear Intercoiffure friends,
An exciting, eventful and intensive year is drawing to a close and I’m delighted to be sending you the winter edition of our newsletter. I’d like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks for your trust, your partnership and your friendship this year. We are full of anticipation for 2017 and our mega event: the 22nd Intercoiffure Mondial World Congress in Osaka/Kyoto from 15th – 17th May 2017. We have just met with the organisational team in Paris and are pleased to announce that the preparations by our Japanese friends are going very well! We are expecting 1000 guests from all over the world to attend this global beauty highlight. Registration has opened for pre-booking.
We’d like to take you on a journey through our different ‘sections’: in 2016 a number of fantastic hair & beauty festivals took place (Bulgaria), as well as business congresses (Germany, Austria, Italy) and stage shows (USA). In all of these locations, hair fashion and handcraftsmanship have been combined with business expertise. And we would like to congratulate Beauty Tanaka on their 90-year company anniversary!
Providing a high level of education and further training is a matter that is very close to Intercoiffure Mondial’s heart: excellent cutting techniques and colour expertise are quality hallmarks of our hairstylists. We are proud that our innovative seminar concept entitled I’m getting trained in Paris proved to be a huge success in the past year. And we’re continuing to expand our programme: the 2017 Education calendar is already available for you online on the Mondial website.
Intercoiffure Mondial is growing steadily and we’re always on the move to ensure we keep further developing our creativity, education offers and social projects. And this commitment is also impressing new partners from the industry: in 2016 we saw the addition of Davines (for Education for Life), Hairdreams and United Salon Technologies (Tondeo, Jaguar, TTC). A warm welcome to the global network of Intercoiffure Mondial!
The Intercoiffure Mondial team and I wish you a happy, relaxing Christmas and a successful, healthy 2017. And we’re looking forward to seeing you soon – at the 22nd World Congress in Osako/Kyoto! We can’t wait for this global get-together among friends. Stay healthy, enjoy the rest of 2016 and start the new year with plenty of plans for the future.
Klaus Peter Ochs
President of Intercoiffure Mondial
