The awards honors industry contributions for product innovation and advertising/marketing concepts within the cosmetics and personal care industry during the course of the past year.
The awards are a well respected and highly recognized annual event that highlights some of the highest achievements and most prodigious talents within the profession and includes both ICMAD members and non-members from the US and all over the world.
Recognizing industry talent
The award ceremony took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on July 30, in conjunction with the Cosmoprof North America event, which is widely recognized as the biggest industry event in the Americas.
The event was a hosted dinner that gathered invited industry professionals from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, and also included classic Las Vegas style entertainment.
“Since the inception of ICMAD’s CITY Awards in 1995, we have been recognizing and celebrating the creativity and ingenuity of our industry’s professionals and their breakthrough innovations,” said Pamela Busiek, President and CEO, ICMAD.
“ICMAD’s 2018 CITY Awards dinner was a wonderful celebration of the collective success of the companies in our industry. I congratulate the finalists and the companies honored with a CITY Award.”
