Cosmoprof North America 2018—What To Expect At The Show

Cosmoprof North America (CPNA), the award-winning, business-to-business beauty event in North America, is just around the corner and will be taking over the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, July 29 – 31. The event covers all facets of the industry, and offers retailers, distributors, beauty brands and suppliers the unique opportunity to discover trend-directional solutions to meet their every need. 


Attendees will have opportunities to learn how to grow their business with classes and programs offered in cooperation with leading associations and publications like Women’s Wear Daily, Buzzfeed and Professional Beauty Association (PBA)! Plus, a day-long series of workshops (not offered anywhere else!) called the Entrepreneur Academy will focus on everything you need to know to run a beauty business.


“Cosmoprof North America is a celebration of beauty that provides key executives from around the world with the opportunity to discover new partnerships for growth and innovative solutions for evolving brands,” said Daniela Ciocan, CPNA Marketing Director. “This year’s unique educational programs, coupled with the high caliber of our attendees, guarantees yet another successful event that will exceed expectations.”




BEAUTY PITCH ANGELS 2018 is a new program happening this year at CPNA, and it’s bringing private equity and venture capitalists together with some of the latest industry innovators. What does that mean exactly? It means if you’re in the beauty biz and looking for investors in your company, Cosmoprof North America could be your chance to get discovered! It’s open to PBA members, CPNA exhibitors and existing beauty companies with at least one original product and $500k in revenue. Here’s how it works: 

  • All applicants will be reviewed by all participating investors, and some will be selected to pitch live to investors.

  • The selected companies will then present their business model and request funding to the interested investors during a 15-minute, closed-door pitch on Sunday, July 29.

  • Entrepreneurs must be prepared to present to as many as six investors, and be willing to show their current sales, distribution model, market opportunities and the way any funding will be utilized. For more information, click here!


“CPNA has a long and steady reputation for providing truly one-of-a-kind programs that propel brands forward and is unique in its ability to attract major private equity groups,” says Daniela. “We used key insights from the debut BEAUTY PITCH 2015 competition to arrive at this year’s format which is all about efficiently bringing truly qualified investors and target companies together for impactful opportunities.”
