Meet the experts in marketing, business development and compliance at THE UK's longest running, CPD approved business orientated Aesthetic Seminar.

This is going to be THE aesthetic business event of the year for Marketeers, Business Owners and Clinic Managers who need to stay ahead of marketing, strategy and compliance trends.

Be SMART - Learn New Ideas to Grow Your Aesthetic Business and Increase Turnover in 2019 and Beyond

PLEASE NOTE: This page shows information from the 2018 event. We will be updating this page with information on the 2019 event soon - save the date: Saturday 16th February 2019.

The annual SMART Ideas Seminar is a unique, one-day CPD approved seminar, hosted by Consulting Room - the UK's largest and longest running aesthetic information website.

Unlike other events that are usually focused around the clinical aspects of aesthetics, SMART Ideas covers - in one day - a range of business topics associated with running an aesthetic clinic that would normally need attendance at several of the larger industry events.

Now in its tenth year, it is the only parallel agenda aesthetic industry seminar in the whole of the country that covers all of the aspects critical to running an aesthetic business. This includes those all-important but often overlooked operating aspects of running a successful aesthetic business; like tax legislation and Health and Safety and compliance with new data control regulations and legislation.

As well as covering these crucial business skills, the seminar also has a full agenda of tried and tested sales and marketing tips, advice and strategies related to running a successful aesthetic practice and maximising profitability; these are delivered by presenters who have real-world experience in using these techniques and who can show how they can be made to work for your business.

But the most exciting thing about SMART Ideas is it all this takes place in a single day. And all under one roof. No other seminar offers such a diverse, comprehensive and useful itinerary as SMART Ideas and thanks to its unique three-track parallel agenda you can pick which talks you attend.

This year the three parallel agendas consist of a Business Strategy Agenda, a Compliance Workshop and a Sales and Marketing Workshop

In an increasingly competitive and regulation heavy cosmetic market investing a small amount of time and money into focussing on strategy, compliance and new ideas will help you to squeeze extra profits out of your business and comply with current legislation; which is why, if you are an aesthetic practitioner, clinic manager, or business owner, SMART Ideas is the must-attend event in the aesthetic calendar in 2018.

Barbara Deakin - Dr Rita Rakus Clinic

"Great to see such a good attendance and, as always, there was ‘something for everyone’ including a full business and marketing agenda. The aesthetic industry has many conferences throughout the year, but SmartIdeas really hits the mark if you want practical advice on running your aesthetic business."

Dr Ravi Jain - Riverbanks Clinic

“I decided to come to this particular event because I was really impressed by the agendas and I found the business agenda absolutely fascinating with really relevant topics and speakers.”

Marea Brennan Thorns - MBNS Clinic

“We've brought 9 of our team here today. It's been fantastic!”

Dr Johanna Ward – The Skin and Body Clinic Sevenoaks

“I've attended the business agenda today and I found it wonderful. I can highly recommend it to any other clinic owners, and indeed any practitioners who are involved in aesthetics and cosmetic medicine.”

Dr Julia Sevi – Clinical Director at Aesthetic Health

“A stimulating day, Smart Ideas is a ‘boutique seminar’ providing handpicked educational and networking opportunities with something for everyone, ranging from start-ups to the more established practitioners and clinics. The business discipline and development was particularly valuable as it can be easily neglected and even if this is delegated within a clinic, a greater understanding is invaluable.”

Emma Caston - Persona Medical

"The SMART seminar was brilliant. We learnt a lot and continue to grow as a company and as individuals implementing the tools, tips & advice shared. We now work more efficiently, giving us time to focus on growth and expansion. We very much look forward to attending the next event."
