Cosmoprof North America 2009 - Going Green With Packaging

While Cosmoprof North America 2009 is designed to bring buyers and sellers together, as well as showcase the latest product and service innovations for the Professional Beauty industry, education is also highlighted in a big way.

Education has always been a cornerstone of the professional beauty industry and Cosmoprof North America 2009 is no different.

A series of timely education focused symposiums, forums, presentations and round tables are held throughout the B to B trade show to help the professional beauty industry attendees investigate and evaluate emerging trends.

Professional business development plays a key role in nurturing the next generation of industry leaders. It also allows experienced managers and business entrepreneurs to refine their current skills as well as acquire new information needed to keep pace with all the new developments.

Going Green With Packaging

The world is going green and the professional beauty industry is no different.  One of the Cosmoprof North America 2009 special educational conferences is Evaluating Green Packaging Materials.  This important trending topic will be discussed on Sunday, July 19th from 3:30 pm until 5:00 pm at the Madison Conference room located inside the Packaging Pavilion at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

This conference will address:

■Is green packaging still a mystery to you?

■Do you have trouble determining which materials are the most eco-friendly?

At this conference, cosmetic packaging supplier HCT Packaging and international beauty brands Urban Decay Cosmetics and Sephora will share their experiences with green packaging materials.

This important conference concludes with a wine-and-cheese reception party open to all in attendance.
