EXTRACTS: New discoveries in beauty and wellness—held at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, February 2-6—will feature a dozen retail-specific seminars, including two specifically targeted to the personal care industry sponsored by GCI magazine.
Spa Retailing: Massaging your Retail Sales for Greater Profits will be held on February 2; Organic Skincare: Profit from Going Green on February 3. Both sessions begin at noon and will be presented by Bryan Durocher, founder of Durocher Enterprises, an internationally-recognized consultancy providing coaching, global industry trends, marketing solutions for personal care and spa industry professionals.
"EXTRACTS is evolving as a result of its relocation to the Javits Center," said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF Director and GLM senior vice president. "The show will be doubled in size, with 13,000-square feet of exhibit space, allowing established brands to present a depth of resources. At the same time, the co-location with New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF), affords EXTRACTS attendees with easier access to many design-driven personal care lines."
According to a press release, the expansion allows EX·TRACTS to remain targeted to the needs of its core audience - spa, salon and specialty retailers - while also attracting additional retailers from specialty apparel boutiques, home fashion and lifestyle retail channels. Together the shows, will offer buyers access to more than 2,700 exhibitors, including some 100 targeted personal care resources (cosmetics, perfumes, skin care, bath & body care, beauty accessories, hair care, natural and organic products and well-being lines) in both EXTRACTS and throughout NYIGF, as well as thousands of complementary gift and home products at the Javits Center, Metropolitan Pavilion and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers. More than 40,000 buyers are expected to attend.
All seminars and events require payment, with reduced rates for advance registration. Complete programs details, schedules and registration are available at www.nyigf.com.
