During a conference session on social networking, I realized that with all the talk about Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and the like, the opportunities to sit down and exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere are few and far between these days. For all the talk about how productive technology has made us, we’ve lost a bit of the human touch along the way. After all, most email exchanges aren’t exactly free-flowing nor all that thought-provoking. And unfortunately, the cosmetic industry lacks an event that requires minimal time or monetary commitment from attendees. But now, Happi is happy to fill that gap.
Next month, Happi will launch its inaugural Breakfast Seminar Series. The May 19 event, which is sponsored by International Specialty Products, will feature expert insights on the fast-growing anti-aging category from well-known dermatologists Dr. Diane Berson and Dr. Karen Burke, as well as Carrie Gross, president and chief executive of Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care. These three industry leaders will look at the scientific issues surrounding aging skin, as well as provide ideas on how to successfully launch products in an increasingly competitive environment.
The session will be held at Opia, a midtown New York City restaurant, and will kickoff with breakfast at 8:15 am. We’ll conclude before 11 am, which gives you plenty of time to get back to the lab or office to start putting all the great ideas you’ve learned into action.
To find out more about the seminar, log on to Happi.com. Of course, if you want a more personalized touch, give me a call (201-825-2552) and I will fill you in on the seminar.
In the meantime, search Happi.com to find an in-depth report on the ethnic hair care market and how the recession’s impact may affect fine fragrance sales in“Fine Fragrance Launches & Post Recessionary Consumers,” by Eric Zeitoun of Dragon Rouge USA.
The recession made more than a few household cleaning product companies skittish, but those that kept spending on R&D were rewarded with greater market share. See Innovation in Motion. Lastly, ignorance isn’t bliss—especially when it comes to green initiatives. Experts say many consumers remain unaware of personal care companies’ efforts in this critical area.
