Where do I buy my Utah Nail Expo ticket?

Tickets to the Utah Nail Expo are available for pre-purchase at a discounted rate beginning February 18. Tickets can be purchased at the door the day of the expo for $70.


Is there a student discount?

Yes. Students can purchase tickets at the door for $30 by showing a current student I.D. Students can not purchase tickets before the expo and must wait in the STUDENT line.


Do I need to save my ticket?

YES! This year we are using an e-ticket system. You will need to either:

  • save the email with your barcode
  • print out your ticket with the barcode.

You will show your barcode to the ticket scanner to enter the exhibit space.


What if I lose my ticket?

If you cannot find your ticket with your barcode, the ticket scanner can look it up based on your name. HOWEVER this will drastically slow down the entry line. We suggest you flag the email with your barcode to make it easier to find, or if you choose to print your ticket, place it somewhere safe until the day of the expo.


How do I get a Swag Bag?

For the 2019 expo, the first 200 people who arrive will receive a swag bag. The swag bags will be given at the door.
