We were a category sponsor last year and gained so much from it that we just had to take the leap to sponsor the whole event with Insanity Tan. We will still be sponsoring a category with our salon chain Bronze Tanning & Beauty and we'll be at every regional heat, sitting in one of the judge’s chairs; plus we'll be running a range of fantastic competitions up until the final. It’s a perfect brand fit for both Insanity Tan and Bronze Tanning & Beauty, and we are excited to be involved again in this amazing contest."
