Gail Doby, Chief Visionary Officer, Gail Doby Coaching & Consulting will put on a seminar focused on planning your year for success.

Steelyard asked designers what they need to make the Las Vegas Market a greater success. The top request was more informative designer focused seminars. That was followed by a convenient place for meet-ups, recharging battery spots and of course, more nail polish colors.

Steelyard listened. New for not only designers but manufactures and editors is the first-ever Las Vegas Market Steelyard Designer Lounge, Suite C580. According to Shawn Hughes, Steelyard President/CEO, “The new Designer Lounge will be set up to host seminars and professional education classes for our designers. It will also offer opportunities for designers and brands to connect, places for meet-ups and to recharge technology along with our limited-edition “Desert Rose” nail polish. Our staff will be available to answer questions and show designers how to take advantage of the special tools our digital platform has to offer.”
