Empire Education Group’s Future Professionals Expo 2013 will take place in Hershey, Pennsylvania on June 23-24th. Empire caught up with industry partner Nick Arrojo at CosmoProf’s Fashion Focus event in Baltimore, Maryland to get a sneak peek at what vendors are going to be showing at FPE this year and what trends are coming up next. This season, texture and tools are hot on the trade show floor, and Arrojo says to watch for curl and movement on stage at FPE.
“I’m really excited about being back at Future Pro,” says Arrojo. “It’s a major event. The energy and the enthusiasm in the room is really exciting for me. I’m going to be showing what our latest looks are. I’m going to be sharing our latest inspiration, and what I’m really talking about right now is the new type of hairdresser. It’s 2013, and there’s a new type of hairdresser that needs to be created to survive in today’s market. And that’s what I’m going to be showing to all those students.”
