Those events—such as DIALOG from the no-longer-around American Beauty Association for salon suppliers and the Young Executives Council from the no-longer-around Beauty & Barber Supply Institute—were held specifically to bring salon/beauty industry executives together to network and learn. Despite being quite popular, they were discontinued years ago due to scheduling pressures and other reasons, including that there were simply too many other events competing for everyone's attention.
