Cosmeeting, a one-to-one business meetings format designed to connect retail buyers and brand owners, announced its expansion. Organized by Beyond Beauty Events and celebrating its 10th anniversary, Cosmeeting has been held in conjunction with Beyond Beauty in Paris and is adding New York dates (May 14–15, 2012) in conjunction with Natural Beauty Summit America at the Sheraton Hotel.
For the U.S. premier, beauty brands will be able to select from the 50 scheduled retail buyers from various channels (including pharmacy, supermarket, chains and selective perfumeries and tax free outlets) with whom they would like to meet. For the retailers, participating emerging brands are vetted by the event organizers, and the number of those selected to participate is limited.
Additional new Cosmeeting events includes a Seoul, South Korea, edition (November 19–20, 2012) that will feature Chinese, Japanese and Korean buyers and an Abu Dhabi edition (November 25–26, 2012), hosting buyers from the Gulf region, Russia and India.
