Event Coverage Sponsored by
Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) announced the lineup for its International Buyer Program and Country Pavilions. The buyer program serves as a liaison between international buyers and exhibitor companies, and is designed to allow qualified buyers from abroad to attend the show and meet exhibitors with corresponding profiles on the show floor. For the 2011 event, 13 buyers (from Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay) will be in attendance.
There will also be another delegation of foreign buyers, including buyers from Australia, Benin, Congo, Guinea, Japan, Mauritania, Mexico, Senegal and Uganda. These buyers were invited specifically to meet with U.S. companies exhibiting at the event.
Aside from individual international exhibitors, there will be six Country Pavilions—from Argentina, Brazil, China, Italy, Korea and Taiwan. The Country Pavilions allow small and medium-sized companies from within select markets to participate in CPNA with the objective of obtaining direct “face time” with distributors and retailers to secure distribution in the U.S. In total, there will be approximately 205 companies from abroad presenting at the event.
