Executive Summary

The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show, or IMATS, is the world’s largest celebration of make-up artistry. Thousands of make-up artists, exhibitors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film (including Oscar, BAFTA and Saturn award winners) provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. IMATS also features a make-up museum and the Battle of the Brushes student make-up competitions, where international make-up students race to create winning looks.

The Challenge

Polkadot Communications launched and managed the campaign for The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) for three consecutive years. IMATS is a key trade show for up-and-coming makeup artists, and those already working in the industry. Top international makeup artists and local talent gather under one roof for the show, providing insight, advice and lectures for the Australian audience. The show has attracted local beauty heroes including Rae Morris.
