About The Event
The NALA Awards Gala and Conference was created to celebrate all of the wonderful things happening in the lash industry!
Our event kicks off with the VIP Cocktail Party which is exclusive to NALA Members and event speakers.The cocktail party is an opportunity for NALA Members to rub elbows with top personalities of the lash world!
The conference, which is open to everyone, is a 2-day educational event, but it's most definitely not your typical lash conference. Yes, breakfast, snacks and lunch are provided for all guests; we will have hands-on training, business-building presentations, and valuable take-aways for all attendees; but the energy and character of this NALA Event will be like no other. The conference is elegantly crafted to keep you interested and actively learning through the entire function.
Finally, the event will wrap up with our, now famous, NALA Awards Gala. This formal soiree is the icing on the cake after two great days of fun, learning and forging new relationships. The gala begins with cocktails and world-class entertainment followed by a three-course plated dinner service. The award winners are announced at the awards ceremony and our prestigious NALA Awards are presented by lash celebrities (it feels just like Hollywood and the Academy Awards). The awards ceremony is aired live on the NALA YouTube Channel for the world to watch and cheer. We complete the event with a DJ and a dance floor where we can party the night away.

Whether you offer lashes out of your home-based studio or you are on a mission to build an empire, the NALA Awards Gala and Conference has something for you!
Learn about the latest innovations in the lash world, receive education with hands-on practice, find new inspiration for business ideas, discover ways to attract new clients, network with lash professionals and maybe even be awarded with a prestigious NALA Award!
We have put an emphasis on LEARNING for this event. We will ensure the cost of your ticket gives you a great return on your investment! It would cost between $10,000 - $15,000 to take educational courses with 8 different educators. At The NALA Conference you will learn from them ALL, in one weekend, for the price of one conference ticket! To top it all off, there will also be great deals from our sponsors and fun activities over the weekend!
The NALA Awards Gala is a formal affair focused on celebrating the great leaders, mentors and game-changers in the lash world. Guests will enjoy a three course dinner along with entertainment.
The lash industry is abundant with professional lash artists, product suppliers and lash educators that care about the advancement of the lash trade. NALA wishes to award these companies and individuals for the many selfless deeds that play a huge role in raising the standards and enhancing our chosen field of work.
