The New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) will hold its 38th Annual Suppliers’ Day on May 2-3, 2017 in a new location: the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. All under one roof and occupying a contiguous space, the 2017 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day will provide the thousands of cosmetic and personal care manufacturers based in the tri-state area, and growing national and international contingencies, an accessible, convenient and efficient trade show and conference venue.
Suppliers’ Day is NYSCC’s flagship event and attracts nearly 8,000 attendees working in R&D and product development for the biggest brand manufacturers in beauty and personal care as well as emerging independents. Exhibitors, more than 400 in 2016, include the leading ingredient and raw materials suppliers as well as testing and quality control labs, machinery, packaging companies and professional service providers.
“After many discussions and outreach to our members and attendees, it was evident that Suppliers’ Day had outgrown its previous facility. A venue closer to the hub of our industries’ product development and marketing, as well as one more accessible for all participants was most requested as an improvement to the event,“ said Rey Ordiales, chair of the NYSCC executive board. “The Javits Center space presents us with the opportunity to make the show more conducive for learning, sourcing and networking, which are all key objectives of our attendees. All this in a prime location with the added benefit of being the most cost-effective option available to our supplier members.” In addition to two days of exhibits, NYSCC will offer an expanded educational program. New features, added exhibitor value, and show experience enhancements to NYSCC Suppliers’ Day 2017 will be announced in the coming months.
“Education and innovation is what drives this industry. There is no better place to be than New York City to message our mission while accessing some of the best minds, products and resources in cosmetic science and product development,” said Marie Thadal, chair-elect of the NYSCC executive board. “We anticipate a successful 2017 Suppliers’ Day in this new, expanded venue—this success certainly helps our association amplify our member initiatives and advance best practices in consumer education, sourcing, sustainability and more.”
