The third annual Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange, a hosted buyer event with select beauty-product suppliers that’s limited to prequalified, high-volume, multilocation beauty buyers—including retailers—will take place on Feb. 20-23 at the Montage Laguna Beach in Laguna Beach, California. I can’t wait!
Sponsored by Beauty Store Business and its sister Creative Age Publications magazines, the dynamic and interactive event features one-on-one scheduled buyer appointments with suppliers as well as networking opportunities and educational sessions.
I really love this invitation-only event! It’s a great opportunity for me to talk to the leading beauty-retail buyers in the country as well as hot beauty suppliers across a wide range of product categories.
In the past, I’ve assisted with the Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange’s education. This year, I’m moderating an exciting, opening-day general session with a panel of all-stars from major U.S. beauty trade associations:
- Pamela Jo Busiek, president and CEO of the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors
- Lois Christie, president of Intercoiffure America/Canada
- Ella Stimpson, chairman of the International SPA Association
- Allan Share, president of the Day Spa Association and the International Medical Spa Association
From all the reports that I’ve received, this is ramping up to be another excellent Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange—most likely the best one ever! Yesterday, I heard from event organizers that there are just a few more spots open for suppliers. As far as buyers for this year, they reported being full.
