Export and Investment Center of the Dominican Republic (CEI-RD), promoter of Dominican Republic products, has joined forces with HBA Global Expo & Conferences to create a pavilion (Booth #2026) showcasing more than 10 companies related to the beauty sector.
The demand for beauty, notably hair products, manufactured in the Dominican Republic has grown in the U.S., as well as in countries such as Panama, Venezuela, Saint Martin, Canary Islands, Italy, Spain and Africa. According to statistics from the CEI-RD, the Dominican Republic exported approximately $33 million in beauty products in 2009—including vitamin components for hair, shampoos, rinses, straightening creams, deodorants, perfumes and essential oils.
HBA Global Expo & Conference is a product development event for the beauty industry. The 18th annual event will takes place from Sept. 28–30, 2010, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
