Cosmoprof North America was HUGE this year. Not just on a personal level seeing as this was my first year to attend anything so big, but just overall. Cosmoprof has its largest attendance thus far and its largest number of exhibitors. There were 892 exhibitors in booths ready to talk about their new and existing products. It was exciting to see some familiar brands and faces (including industry leaders and several brands previously featured on TheRosySnail.com) as well as brands and manufacturers I had never heard of. These “new to me” brands also packed a punch with innovative products I’d only ever dreamed up. The beauty industry is #1 in consumer goods. It’s a statistic that’s been rattling around in my head for years, but Cosmoprof really takes it all and brings it to life all in one 3 day long show and tell!
I get excited just looking at the signage for next year! But you might be asking, “What IS Cosmoprof?” Cosmoprof is the premier market for the beauty industry. It’s a place for brands, manufacturers, buyers, distributors, creators and artists to come together and create lasting business relationships. Brands introduce themselves, show off new and upcoming collections and even unveil new partnerships. I can’t even begin to tell you all of the exciting new things I saw! Mostly because some of them are still under wraps! That’s right! You’ll see it FIRST at Cosmoprof North America. My motivation was a combination of my drive to write and my drive continue my education in Esthetics. It was out of this world to see what is new and trending and projected to be popular in the next year! Don’t worry, some secrets I can spill 😉
Now that I’m finally home in Texas, I’ve got so much to write about so be sure and stay tuned. I’ve got some NEW products to share from brands we already love here at The Rosy Snail, some new nail polish innovations and even a celebrity interview! I’m glad to be back home, but I can’t wait to go back!
