Market research company The NPD Group, Inc. and Cosmetic Executive Women Inc. (CEW), will partner for NPD Group’s “Hot off the Press” Beauty Industry Year in Review. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013.

“Hot off the Press” is invitation only and provides NPD’s clients with a first look at the annual year-end results for the U.S. and global beauty industry. The NPD Group has been tracking the beauty industry for over 15 years. Next year, this highly-coveted event will be expanded to include insights from several key beauty retailers.

CEW will broaden the reach of “Hot off the Press” with a second event, just for CEW members. The NPD Group’s Chief Industry Analyst, Marshal Cohen, and Beauty Senior Global Industry Analyst, Karen Grant will share top-line results. Both events will be held at the Union League Club in Manhattan.

“We are excited to partner with CEW for the first time on our ‘Hot off the Press’ event,” said Diane Nicholson, president of the beauty division, The NPD Group, Inc. “This partnership brings two industry forces together to guide and inform our market leaders with a look at key trends of the past year and the emerging issues we face in 2013 and beyond.”

Carlotta Jacobson, president, CEW Inc., added, “This partnership between CEW and NPD will allow us both to leverage our key competencies: NPD, as the leading provider of marketplace intelligence and CEW, for providing access, networking and the sharing of knowledge to our members, and the beauty industry at large.”
