IBS New York is the longest-running show for the professional beauty industry and is not open to the general public. The show's main objective is to educate, in effect opening new doors for beauty professionals.
Why has IBS New York 2021 been cancelled?
We have been notified that the Jacob K Javits Convention Center has cancelled our dates for the July IBS New York 2021 show. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the restrictions in place for capacity, we will not be able to host the show in 2021. We will return to New York on March 13-15, 2022 and expect to be back with a show, education and experience that can be enjoyed in a safer environment.
