Dear BTC Show Family,

It’s time to share some news. We’ve got some good news, some really sad news and even a bit of exciting news to dry the tears.

Let’s start with the sad news. We were all praying for a show miracle. We stayed positive and had hoped that COVID-19 would not rain on our BTC SHOW parade (after all, we are known for our rainbows!) But, it was not to be. With COVID-19 cases continuing to rise in many states—including our BTC SHOW 2020 host state of Texas—we have had to make the difficult call to officially cancel our (in-person) 2020 BTC SHOW & #ONESHOT HAIR AWARDS in San Antonio on Aug. 23-25, 2020. We know this is not the news any of us wanted to hear, but in order to protect all of you, our manufacturer partners and our BTC team, we ultimately had no choice.


THE BTC SHOW will NOW be “ONLINE”

We KNOW we need to be together. This special time each year is our “Family Reunion”! We know how important our BTC SHOW is to the industry, so drum roll please…we’ll be doing our show DIGITALLY this year! That’s right! A 2-Day ONLINE BTC SHOW Event on the same weekend, Aug. 23-24, 2020. To register for the 2-day online event, click here! This virtual show will give us a special space to connect virtually—virtual hugs, virtual education, virtual togetherness. We’re even trying to figure out a virtual pool party! Your favorite artists, educators and manufacturers will all be together online! And, next year, we’ll all be back together again in-person in August 2021 (date and location to be announced soon).

HOTEL REFUND/BOOKING INFORMATION

As you can imagine, we have been crying ugly tears just thinking about not seeing all of you in August, but as they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and that will make our in-person reunion just that much sweeter! Until then, we will share virtual hugs when we’re all together on August 23-24! If you have any questions, please contact events@behindthechair.com.

Much love,
Your BTC Family
