CPNA Announces Initial Discover Beauty 2013 Lineup

Discover Beauty is a great place to learn about brands, so I'm excited to see the new brands that will be there this year!  My husband is obsessed with the Kyoku for Men Sake Infused Shave Creme - Kyoku was a Discover Beauty brand in 2011.

Las Vegas, NV (March 5, 2013) – The Discover Beauty program, an exclusive initiative of Cosmoprof North America (CPNA), returns for its seventh successful year of matching leading retailers with emerging beauty brands in 2013. Companies from all over the world must be approved to participate in Discover Beauty, ensuring an exclusive array of unique, cutting-edge brands that are sure to be the "next big thing." For these brands, CPNA show organizers arrange pre-scheduled sales meetings and events with important retailers, however, the area is open to all attendees throughout the 3-day event. CPNA is proud to announce the initial Discover Beauty line-up for 2013: African Botanics, Greenland, Jenetiqua, Manuka Doctor, Marilou Bio, MDSolarSciences, Million Dollar Hair, Mirabella Beauty, Skin&Co Roma and VitaMan.

The Discover Beauty program is a high-end, curated section centrally located on the show floor combining the best of both worlds: a one-on-one customized buyer program complete with pre-arranged face-to-face meetings to take place in private meeting room spaces as well as a traditional exhibition presentation.  This allows the brands to enjoy the exposure to all attendees at the show, but it also guarantees the face-to-face time with select specialty retail buyers to secure placement into key accounts. 

All Discover Beauty brands are automatically enrolled for the 2013 Discover Beauty Award. This award is given to one brand, which is recognized for its creativity in concept, packaging and overall ability to succeed in this competitive retail market. The winner is selected by industry leaders, beauty editors and participating retailers. The Discover Beauty Award winner will be announced on the evening of Sunday, July 14, 2013, as part of a private reception.
