What’s Next: Cosmopack NYC is coming soon
The mountain is coming to the man — at least, according to Daniela Ciocan, marketing director for Cosmoprof North America. Cosmoprof Las Vegas is a trade show of monumental proportions, bringing together buyers and sellers in every facet of the beauty industry including packaging, manufacturing and retail. The Cosmoprof brand spreads itself across many continents, and the Las Vegas show is the once a year opportunity for players in the U.S. market to see what’s new in the industry. While Vegas is a perfect setting for this conference, it creates a bit of a dilemma with the majority of the industry calling New York City its home base. The solution is Cosmopack NYC. Cosmopack scales back the production a bit to focus on beauty packaging and allows the NYC beauty execs to participate with a quick cab ride across town.
Cosmopack NYC returns for its second year on Sept. 16 to 17 at the Hilton Midtown Hotel. The buyers segment is fully booked with reps from top industry brands including Estee Lauder, Orly and John Paul Mitchell, but there is still time to register for the conference. Participants who enroll before September 12 can attend for free. Registration is still open on the Cosmoprof website.
These informative conferences are not to be missed for professionals who want to stay on top of the latest trends in the industry. On Sept. 16, the event will kick off at 8:30 a.m. with a welcome address, and from there the day is packed with five conferences led by industry taste makers.
Conference 1: Exploring Innovations – Formulas for the Future
This conference explores the newest methods for finding and developing cutting-edge cosmetic ingredients.
