In recent years the Beauteam US, which is responsible for the event, has been hard pushed to find the right location for the event but is hoping that positioning it in the heart of Midtown, between 37th and 38th Street, will be optimal.
This year’s event will take place over two days, between September 19th and 20th and will also include a comprehensive conference and educational program that will include hot topics such as indie beauty, legacy brands and a closer look at the K-Beauty trend.
