Entries Still Open for 2020 Australian Beauty Industry Awards

Important Notice regarding Hair Biz Forum and AHIA Re: Corona Virus

The team at Mocha Publishing have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation over recent days. The Australian Government have announced that as of Monday 16th March 2020 all non-essential gatherings of over 500 people should be avoided and that all international travellers arriving into Australia will need to self-quarantine for 14 days. Owner of Mocha Publishing, Linda Woodhead has been attending a conference in Bali where she was a keynote speaker and so the 14-day quarantine will apply to her on her return. Our priority is to ensure the safety, health and well-being of the members of our Hair and Beauty community through our events and awards.
