How can we help?

Is IMATS open to the public?

Yes, general-admission hours are open to the public (age restriction applies), where indicated. IMATS Pro-Card Events are only open to Make-Up Artist magazine Pro-Card holders, and the date and times vary by city. We reserve the right to refuse service.

What is the age limit?

You must be 12 years or older to attend any IMATS show.

Infants and children under the age limit will not be admitted. 

Attendees 12 years old to 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. If the youth is not escorted by a parent or guardian, they will need school ID identifying them to be in at least 6th grade. Photo ID is required for all adults at entrance.

As the world’s first-ever make-up artist trade show, we’ve always been open to the public. Our primary mission, however, has always been to serve make-up professionals. 

Is it possible that IMATS could sell out?

Yes! Several of our shows sell out prior to the event. We strongly advise that you purchase tickets online as soon as possible. We highly recommend buying event tickets before booking your flight or hotel. Once a day is sold out, tickets are not available to purchase at the door or over the phone.

When will tickets for each show go on sale?

Tickets will go on sale approximately six months prior to the event. Check each city for show dates and links to purchase tickets.
