August 11-13, 2019 // Atlanta, GA


Now in its second year, NAILS’ Foot Forward Summit brings a new lineup of professional, foot-focused education and networking opportunities. The event is designed to connect nail professionals who are interested in learning advanced foot care techniques with experts in the field — medical personnel, product manufacturers, and, most importantly, other nail techs who have successfully carved out a niche in this growth area.

Healthy, solution-oriented pedicures and other foot-related services are increasingly in demand as the population ages and consumers look to maintain the health of their feet in a hygienic environment. Nail techs with advanced foot and nail care knowledge can take advantage of this demand, benefitting their clients, increasing client loyalty, and expanding revenues. Treatments, techniques, and products that address common foot conditions will be center stage at this event produced by industry leader NAILS Magazine and offering in-depth education, networking opportunities, and hands-on training.


Join us at Foot Forward Summit 2019 — serious education for nail techs who are serious about foot care.



So inspirational and educational! Had a great time!

We were looking for a way to introduce an element of foot health in our practice. The seminar gave us valuable information about diabetic foot care, advanced foot care training, and promotion of the services. We are looking forward to next year!
