COSMOPROF North America, Las Vegas 2015

DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored post.

Hello, my pretties! ♥

This Saturday, I'll be heading out to attend Cosmoprof North America 2015 in Las Vegas, NV! This is a trade show for beauty professional ONLY and for business-to-business opportunities to all sectors of the professional beauty industry. As a beauty blogger and makeup artist, I am fortunate to have been invited to attend as a member of the press.

To be completely honest, this is my very first time attending, so I don't have a clue as to what to expect. Regardless, I am extremely excited to be there and take a small break from family life to fully indulge in what is considered the Most Innovative Trade Show in the United States. There will be 1019 exhibitors from over 40 countries! That in itself can make any girl's head spin...I know it does mine ☺

This trade show is organized into 3 major areas:

COSMETICS & PERSONAL CARE - "Showcasing the best in beauty - cosmetics, skincare, toiletries, fragrances, organic beauty products, and accessories - specialized in retail channel distribution in mind...The retail channels of the cosmetics industry including all skin, hair, nail, and tools for retail. This hall is for companies that have products more heavily geared towards consumers rather than professionals."

PACKAGING, CONTRACT MFG & PRIVATE LABEL - "An entire pavilion devoted to the suppliers serving the beauty industry...Supply chain from raw materials to machinery, formulation to packaging, including contract manufacturing, private label, and business tools and POS systems."

PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY - "An entire pavilion devoted to the salon world...Including professional hair care, hair color, styling products, accessories, implements, tools, equipment, furniture, and attire."

Since this is a more formal event than other trade shows I've gone to, I'm not sure how many pictures I'll be allowed to take inside the show. The exhibitors keep a tight lid on new releases and images taken by third parties usually have an embargo date. I'll be sharing as much as I am allowed via social media.

Make sure to follow me if you don't already do! 

Aside from attending the trade show, I'll also be attending several different cocktail parties after the show. You can for sure expect me to share those images with you! I'm definitely in for a very busy time in Las Vegas.

I'll have lots of news for you, so keep your eyes peeled! For now, I send you all tons of love & light.

Take care & until next time...
