Eastern Buying Conference 2016 to Be Held in East Rutherford, New Jersey

The next Eastern Buying Conference will not be—as previously announced—at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, New Jersey, April 2-3, Beauty Store Business has learned.

Instead, it is returning to a site longtime exhibitors and attendees are more familiar with: East Rutherford, New Jersey, where it was held for many years before moving to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and then to Somerset this past April.
