As you read this, the industry calendar is showing a little more open space after a flurry of major events. As I write this, however, it is April and I am in Paris, following the wrap up of another successful in-cosmetics show, a major cosmetics ingredient event. The excitement of the CEW Beauty Awards in the U.S. and the U.K., BeautyEurasia in Istanbul, the SCC Suppliers’ Day, LuxePack New York and The Fragrance Foundation’s FiFi Awards in the U.S., to name only a few, are still to come in May. Wow … un café, s’il vous plait! As usual, there is no shortage of opportunities to get together, network and learn in this amazing industry, and I hope to see you out there taking advantage of them.
