I'd love to meet Scott-Vincent Borba!  (All images courtesy of Y! PR)


Las Vegas, NV (May 8, 2012) – As everyone in the beauty business knows, a big part of your brand’s success is based on the branding product formula, but more importantly the packaging. It’s what sells the product and ultimately catches the consumers’ attention at the point of sale. The private label category has grown by leaps and bounds as manufacturers are incorporating innovative packaging solutions to create that sought-after million-dollar sku.

Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) is the platform that connects private label professionals, manufacturers, and design and packaging executives. These industry professionals come together to explore innovative ideas and packaging opportunities as it pertains to finished goods, secondary packaging, and contract/ private label manufacturers. This is the common theme, which Private Label magazine will cover in the It’s All In The Packaging session. This session will give in-depth views on the latest data behind packaging influence, how packaging and retail has changed, in addition to how to make the right choices when creating a new brand or implementing a re-branding strategy.

Join CPNA and three industry leaders as they highlight trends in packaging, new concepts, materials as well as having the right presence. Moderated by Phillip Russo, Publisher of Private Label magazine, the “It’s All In The Packaging” session will be held at Cosmoprof North America on Monday, July 23, 2012 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
