Cosmoprof North America, the leading B2B beauty trade show in the Americas, safely made its return to the show floor for the first time in two years as the first live B2B event within the Cosmoprof international network. The 18th edition welcomed back retailers, distributors, beauty brands, and suppliers under one roof to experience the absolute best in the beauty industry. Through this powerful platform, exhibitors and attendees were able to immerse themselves in the world of beauty again and experience exciting new and returning programs, floor activations, conferences, and an array of networking opportunities with leading industry experts and retailers.
New and established exhibiting companies showed enthusiasm to get back to in-person networking with retailers, distributors, suppliers, and other beauty brands to showcase product launches within the three macro-sectors of the show: Cosmetics & Personal Care (finished products for retail), Professional Beauty (finished products for salons and spas), and Cosmopack (solutions for the entire beauty supply chain). In addition to these larger sections were the return of crowd-favorite special areas Discover Beauty, Discover Beauty Spotlights, Discover Green, The Beauty Vanities, and Tones of Beauty.
The highly anticipated CBD Beauty special area, featuring beauty brands that have CBD as an essential ingredient, made its debut as part of the new larger Green Village, showcasing a select number of green and natural brands. Also making its debut was the Mentorship Program, offering exhibitors the unique opportunity to have one-on-one mentoring sessions with experts in their fields: retail & distribution, branding, funding, exporting, digital marketing & performance, SEO, social media, press, trends, and the multicultural market.
This year’s edition exceeded the expectations of organizers with exhibitors and attendees expressing enthusiasm to reconnect in person. The 19th edition of CPNA will be held July 12-14, 2022 in a new location, the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).
