Nail Tech Event of the Smokies


 The Nail Tech Event of the Smokies was started by a nail tech in 2008 with 6 educators, 50 attending nail techs & the iconic Vicki Peters as the honored guest speaker.


Within 5 years it became the largest nails-only show on the East Coast thanks to our year long promotional efforts & exceptional word of mouth referrals from nail techs, educators & company owners alike.


The resort town of Gatlinburg is the gateway city to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited Park in the USA. Over 9 million visitors a year can't be wrong!


The town of Pigeon Forge is short 6 miles away & features Dollywood amusement & water park, Dixie Stampede dinner theatre, plus countless other entertainment, attractions, restaurants & shopping outlets.


The Smokies are an affordable destination within a day's drive for over 50% of the population East of the Mississippi.


We welcome you to start making family memories on your "nail-cation" tax write off!
