If this is your first time at Cosmoprof North America or if you've been coming for years, you absolutely cannot miss the following features!
- STOP by the exclusive one-stop beauty shop for free sampling – BEAUTIQUE, a new sampling concept which will be unveiled at the show. Pick up some of the latest up-and-coming cosmetics, skin care, nails, hair and some classic beauty favorites. As the first to bring customized sampling to a trade show, CPNA has created a fun sampling bar which will feature select exhibiting brands for a nominal donation. This gives exhibitors an opportunity to gain more visibility with buyers in attendance that might be overlooked otherwise. All proceeds collected will benefit CITY OF HOPE.
