New to the show this year was the incorporation of the Cosmopack event, which has been held in New York City as a separate Fall event until this year.
The Cosmopack area took up a large portion of the show floor and served to showcase some of the biggest packaging players in the business, including names like Baralan, Fusion, Yonwoo and HCP.
All about staying connecting
This year's event also highlighted connectivity by incorporating a number of brand new initiatives aimed at bringing business minds together during the three-days of the show.
Among the new additions with this aim included Cosmo Curates, dedicated to connecting the beauty press with CPNA exhibitors, This initiative included ten editors from the beauty press who had a curated tour of the show to meet key exhibitors.
Also new were the Cosmo Trends and Cosmo Trends Corner, the latter being a dedicated area housing key market intelligence players, while Cosmo Trends is an annual trends report put together by BeautyStreams and made available to everyone attending the show.
The other new addition was Cosmo Influencers, which included a group of leading beauty industry influencers that were connected with exhibitors who were launching new and interesting brand innovations during the event.
