Organizers, Reed Exhibitions, kicked off this year's event with an important announcement: the team has decided to move next year's event to New Jersey.
Reed has taken the decision to shift the event from the Jacob Javits in mid-town Manhattan, to the Meadowland's Exposition Center, which is in the heart of Northern New Jersey, making it a good spot for the many formulation providers that are based in and around that area.
Stating that the decision was made following extensive surveying of exhibiting companies and visitors to the event, and the dates for the New Jersey venue have been confirmed for October 21 - 22, 2020.
"This will take the region's most interactive show for personal care ingredients and new product development into the heartland of the beauty industry," said show director Daniel Zanetti.
"The Meadowlands is a superb venue. It will offer all participants greater value, with free parking, and accomodation on average 30% cheaper than in New York City."
