Attend the Monaco Nail Academy Summit 2024!

A 2-Day Event right before the Nail Central Nail Expo in Hamilton

The Agenda –

Day 1 – Thursday 2 May 2024

  • 10am-12pm – Arrival time. A late start so that you can arrive Day 1 without paying for an extra night’s accommodation
  • 12pm – Welcome Lunch
  • 1pm – Business and Marketing Focus Group – Full Agenda TBC but it’s gonna be GOOD!
  • 5pm – Pizza and PJs
  • 6pm – Business and Marketing Focus Group Continues
  • 9pm – Finish

Day 2 – Friday 3 May 2024

  • 8am – Breakfast
  • 9am – Shuttle to Venue
  • 9.30am – A morning of intensive coaching in whichever areas YOU want
  • 12.30pm – Lunch
  • 1.30pm – Open Book Competition ‘Salon French’ – Same rules, same timeframe as the official NZ Nail Competitions, but you get to do a practice nail, have it judged, and then start the clock. While the clock is running, you can run your choices past the Mentors and have them guide you (OPEN BOOK!). You then judge YOURSELF and we work with you to get the judging correct. Not into Comps? Consider this an extension of your coaching – you have Mentors floor-walking and helping you the entire time. It’s not a competition, it’s training with prizes. It’s no different to being on a course (which you are) and getting feedback throughout the day – EXCEPT that you have a small chance of getting a trophy. There will be prize categories for 0-18 months since enrolment and 18 months+.
  • 5pm – Shuttle back to the accommodation to get ready for the evening’s events
  • 6pm – Shuttle to our evening’s venue
  • 6.30pm – Prizegiving ‘Ball’ – It’s not a Comp without prizes right? So what about a Prizegiving Party with our fanciest frocks and Comp Prizes as well as awards for exam scores throughout 2023 and a few People’s Choice categories.
  • 10pm – Shuttle back to Accommodation

Day 3 – Saturday 4 May 2024

  • Pack up, check out, and take the Shuttle to the Nail Central Nail Expo (not affiliated with Monaco, but we are exhibiting there).
  • Shuttle will be available to take you to the airport.

Your ticket includes –

  • Accommodation in an Air BnB on the nights of 2 and 3 May 2024
  • Access to a 12-Seater van for Airport Pick Ups, Drops Offs, and transport between venues.
  • Venue for Day 2
  • Day 1 Lunch, Snacks and Dinner
  • Day 2 Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks and Dinner
  • Prizegiving Party with the aforementioned Day 2 Dinner plus a drink on arrival
  • Monaco Swag Bag
  • Certificates for everyone that competes in the Open Book Comp
  • Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category
  • Access to your Mentors for two days


  • You will be charged a deposit of $45 (this will show as $35 + $10) followed by 35 additional payments of $10 per week for a total of $395. Again this covers meals, accommodation, transport and coaching. Note that early registrations were charged $35 and then $8 a week for 45 weeks for the same total of $395 per person. With the Summit getting closer when have increased the payments to still have your balance paid on time.
  • If you live nearby and do not need accommodation, we can complete your Payment Plan 6 payments early. As it’s a large AirBnB, the portion of the overall fee that is attributed to sleeping arrangements isn’t very much!
  • All payments are non-refundable but can be transferred to a not-already-registered Student or Graduate.
  • The Monaco Summit is open only to Students and Graduates of Monaco Nail Academy however Day 2 Coaching and Comps may be opened up to non-Monaco Nail Techs if space allows.
