Renowned for setting trends and influencing product development, Suppliers’ Day is the go-to event for the beauty world. Taking place May 1 to May 2 in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, this year’s conference looks to be the biggest edition to date in the event’s 45-year history.

This year’s show floor will be home to more than 100 hours of scientific and marketing conference sessions and educational programs; 570-plus global exhibitors showcasing novel ingredients, formulas, processing, advanced scientific testing equipment; and the INDIE 360 Pavilion featuring a Latina capsule of brands.

And of course an event dedicated to newness will have many fresh elements on offer, including the Inspiration Zone featuring breakthrough innovations from ingredients and formulations suppliers curated by Beautystreams. A Plug-In to Inspiration Charging Station will feature a look into past decades of inspiration spearheaded by the NYSCC.  There’s also a Head Shot Studio available to enhance attendees’ LinkedIn profiles, while providing an opportunity for them to share what inspired them on the Suppliers’ Day show floor.

Three educational programs led by the NYSCC Scientific Advisory Committee will focus on science-backed products that are in demand including a focus on hair care, biotechnology in beauty, and innovation in nutricosmetics.

Not to be missed is “beauty’s biggest night,” a fun filled evening held May 1 celebrating The Future of Beauty at Lavan Midtown where NYSCC unveils the finalists of the Ingredients & Formulations category for CEW’s 2024 Beauty Awards. The Met Gala-inspired event will be filled with experiential art, Afro-Latin culture, and modern history performances, all while rubbing shoulders with industry experts and celebrating innovation in the cosmetic industry.
