Suppliers’ Day 2021 will be held May 4-5 in the Javits Center in NYC

by james.runkle@drummondst.com james.runkle@drummondst.com No Comments

As you are aware, the NYSCC team has been hard at work planning for Suppliers’ Day this September.

However, based on the results of a NYSCC survey to members and the Suppliers’ Day community, as well as the still evolving effects of COVID-19 pandemic including travel restrictions, the NYSCC Executive Board has made the hard decision to not hold Suppliers’ Day this year.

Next year, Suppliers’ Day will return to its traditional timeframe: 

May 4-5, 2021 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

NYSCC is unwilling to compromise the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors and team.  We are also unwilling to deliver what we feel would be a sub-standard Suppliers’ Day experience this year. While we are disappointed to forego having the event this year, we feel that it is the right decision for everyone involved.

Although we currently can’t meet in-person, NYSCC is committed now more than ever in delivering high quality content through our Webinar Intensive Program and “At Home Live Series 2.0.”  In addition, access to resources and suppliers through our Digital Pop-Up & Solutions Center, as well as Cosmetic Raws searchable database provides networking and engagement.

As the leading non-profit organization for cosmetic chemists, NYSCC will continue to help our members as well as the beauty and personal care community be as successful as possible in this ever-changing environment.

As it becomes available, additional information will be posted here on this site.
