1. Shopping and samples
2. Classes and demos
Yeah, technically it's not a lot list wise but multiply it into a convention center and you've really got something there. Bonus: I won a raffle in one of the classes (a book, a shirt, and a box of detox tea), additional bonus: I got to test drive a treatment with The Contour Light (a magical machine that breaks down your fat cells and helps you to lose inches...a $100 value).
I watched some awesome demos of which I would love to continue my education in a little further down the road. The first of which is a bamboo facial massage using warm bamboo. The woman doing this demo had a lovely french accent and was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep watching the massage (in a nice way). Today I watched a demo using Kansa wand as part of a facial massage and I sat there thinking "Man, I want to do this too!!".

Which leads into the shopping...I gave myself a very small budget, but I splurged and bought some Eminence products anyway. They just smell so lovely and work so hard to make their booth amazing. They have demos at their booth all day and they give so much info. I also picked up some brushes...you can't beat wholesale (I'm guessing) prices.
After visiting this year I was realizing that somewhere down the line I would like to teach Esthetics. I love taking classes and learning more and more about the skin care industry. There is always something new, unfortunately in school the focus is mainly state board. Don't get me wrong students need the state board stuff but there is so much more that I wish that I had been exposed to.
