Marie Thadal, business development executive-Americas at Coptis Inc., says, “NYSCC Suppliers' Day delivered on its promise of producing a high-quality face-to-face event for the industry despite the many obstacles and travel restrictions still in place because of the global pandemic. Our engagement with attendees and leads from the event exceeded our expectations. We were able to have meaningful and non-rushed conversations with our customers and new prospects. The event and awards night ceremony provided a safe environment for us to get back to business and network. We are really looking forward to Suppliers’ Day in May of 2022.”
The NYSCC Education & Awards Night event took place on Wednesday, November 10th at HK Hall. Granpowder BBP-700 from Grant Industries won the CEW Beauty Creator’s Award and will be recognized again at the full CEW Beauty Creator Awards Virtual Program on December 1, 2021.
