HBA Global Expo is seeking speaker proposals for its educational program, taking place Sept. 28–30, 2010, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. Leaders in all areas of the beauty business—including marketers, product developers, consultants, educators, researchers, entrepreneurs and manufacturers—are encouraged to submit an application.
The three-day HBA educational program will feature its popular Marketing and Technical Conference, along with dedicated conference programs focused on Green Cosmetics, the Global Perspective, and Future Trends.
"As an event that covers all aspects of the industry, HBA's educational program provides conference delegates with proven strategies, latest innovations and tools as well as unrivaled access to industry experts to propel their new product development plans," said Jill Birkett, brand director, beauty & wellness, HBA. "This year, we look forward to improving the educational experience and fostering an even greater exchange of fresh ideas and best practices."
Most sessions in the HBA Conference Programs are 90-minute panels and include three speakers addressing different elements of a similar topic. Topics that will be covered include an in-depth look at product categories, market and distribution trends, creating successful brands, package design and consumer appeal, innovation and idea generation, regulatory update, social media, connecting to the consumer and real-world case studies.
Those interested in speaking at HBA should submit a 150-word description of a proposed topic along with a brief bio, including previous speaking experience, and full contact information to Rebecca Fraimow, education program director, at [email protected].
