Booksy merchants from all over Birmingham eagerly watched as Ruger Barber Director and Co-Founder Alan, worked alongside Josh to showcase their experience live on stage, spoke about their own personal career journeys, and shared their top tips for business success.

The business event took place at innovative conference venue Eastside Rooms on Thursday 31 March and was included in the second stop of Booksy’s city-by-city takeover campaign, following on from a successful visit to Liverpool last month.

The night had an incredible turnout and was a fantastic chance for Birmingham-based Booksy merchants to network and share business tips. Some of the talented merchants in attendance were The House Hair, Barber Shop Social, Kasey's Browtique and Beauty, Sloane Barber, and The Wig Slay Team.

Guests were greeted in style by local Birmingham band ‘Melts the Band’ and were treated to nibbles, drinks, and goody bags jam-packed with useful Booksy marketing merchandise.

As part of the city-by-city takeover, from 30 March to 3 April, team Booksy was out in full force on the streets of Birmingham promoting the app, visiting merchants face-to-face, and giving out provider packs.

Booksy team Vishal Khakhar, Booksy's head of marketing, said: “We were delighted Alan and Josh could join us for the event and showcase their exceptional skills, they really are inspirational. The night was a huge success, and it was amazing to be able to bring merchants together to network and learn from each other.
