One week on, and the industry buzz is still centered on the action at HBA Global Expo, which drew thousands of attendees on June 19-21 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY. The iconic event celebrated its 20th anniversary as the leading product development event for the cosmetics, fragrance, personal care, skin care and wellness industries.
For three days, the entire beauty community had the opportunity to gather together to source new international ingredients and raw materials, packaging and components, contract manufacturers, services and finished goods. In addition, the extensive HBA conference program provided key insights and opportunities for beauty brands to grow and increase sales. And as part of the celebration, the highly regarded International Package Design Awards (IPDAs, sponsored by Beauty Packaging and Happi magazines) were announced and presented on June 19.
