The event was at the Hilton Tucson East, 5600 E. Broadway, this past Saturday, and more than 120 attended the daylong event which featured 15 breakout sessions by presenters with fashion tips, makeup techniques, and exercise and health options. More than 40 vendors also exhibited their services and products. “It’s a fun day for the ladies,” said conference organizer Olivia Gutzman. “To leave the guys at home and just be girls.”
