From 1-3 October, 2,000 staff from 45 countries gathered in Port Aventura, Spain to celebrate the event, which featured masterclasses and workshops alongside leisure activities.

L'Oréal Business Forum is designed to establish contacts between beauty parlours with artistic and business seminars in the Port Aventura facilities.

French event management agency Ekypage was in charge of the event, choosing Port Aventura as the venue.

"We are very proud to have held the L’Oréal Business Forum at Port Aventura; an event of these characteristics is an excellent opportunity for showcasing our multi-purpose facilities to the sector, and for Port Aventura to display its capacity for holding large international events, with unique, high quality services. It has undoubtedly been a first-class showcase," said Franck Barbaras, director of Port Aventura Business & Events and Port Aventura Convention Centre.

Delegates and guests stayed at the Caribe and Gold River Port Aventura hotels just a few metres from the Port Aventura Convention Centre.

Staff took to the event's Facebook page to praise the venue and entertainment. Destinations including Paris and Turkey were touted for 2013's event.
