HBA 2008: It’s a Wrap



Sixteenth annual event draws more than 16,000 beauty business experts to New York. HBA Awards presented to industry’s best and brightest.



For three days in September, one of the hottest places to be in New York City was the Jacob K. Javits Center. More than 16,200 industry executives gathered at HBA Global Expo, held Sept. 9-11, to hear from experts in their trade, explore new products on the show floor and get-up-close and personal with several new launches.
  
 (From l-r): Jill Birkett, event director, HBA Global Expo; Simon Foster, chief executive officer, International Media, producers of HBA Global Expo; Catherine Walsh, senior vice president, American Fragrances, Coty Prestige; and Michele Scannavini, president, Coty Prestige.
“HBA was a hubbub of activity for the B2B beauty marketplace,” said Jill Birkett, event director, HBA Global Events. “With new product announcements, fresh content, expert speakers and advice, innovating trends as well as samplings and tasting of new beauty foods from Mintel, it was truly a one stop destination for anyone.”
   
Although overall attendance numbers remained flat compared to 2007’s show, HBA officials said there was increase in  executives with brand management responsibilities, and according to Ms. Birkett, more than 3,500 of them were first time HBA participants.”
   
Kicking off the expo was the keynote address delivered by Nicholas Perricone, MD, a skin care pioneer who founded a leading company in the dermatologist skin care segment.
    
HBA also featured an extensive educational program addressing a wide range of marketing, product development and business strategy topics. During these sessions attendees were able to hear from and engage with speakers that included leaders from companies such as Avon, Zirh and Bath and Body Works. In addition, experts also included staff from consumer goods companies from outside—or on the fringe—of the beauty business, such Mattel and Dylan’s Candy Bar, which have or will dabble in personal care (Mattel’s Barbie teamed with M.A.C. while Dylan’s is set to launch bath products this month).

Top Packaging Awards



In addition to the annual trade show and conference, a continually popular event during HBA is the Industry Awards Dinner, which was held Sept. 9 at the Marriott Marquis. More than 600 industry executives gathered at the mid-town hotel to honor innovative leaders, and hear who won coveted International Package Design Awards (IPDA).
 
 L'Oréal's Skin Genesis took home top IPDA honors.
The IPDA Grand Award for 2008 Package of the Year went to L’Oréal’s Skin Genesis (left). The packaging, which was supplied by Rexam, also won the skin care-mass category.
