MAX is a 3-day, 4-night event located in St. Louis, MO, specifically designed for face and body artists, as well as balloon artists of all experience levels. It merges creative activities with learning in a vibrant and community-focused atmosphere.

Recently acquired by the Art Factory team, we are excited to host you and support your business growth while enhancing your skills. This event welcomes participants of all skill levels with hands-on learning and extensive community building opportunities. With the Art Factory’s wealth of experience in event planning, this promises to be an unmissable experience.



Our event takes place at the  Crown Plaza Hotel (Airport), offering conveniences like a free shuttle for flying attendees, complimentary breakfast, free parking, and a welcoming creative community eager to connect.

Our goal is to foster personal growth and entrepreneurial skills in a relaxed and artistic environment.

In 2025, MAX will feature workshops and demonstrations in face painting, body painting, balloon twisting and décor, airbrush body art, and henna, catering to artists at every stage of their journey.

Vendors will showcase a wide variety of products, making shopping during your stay convenient and enjoyable.
