Suppliers’ Day 2024

Interview with Dr. Amber O. Evans

NYSCC Chair: The theme of the 2024 NYSCC Suppliers Day, May 1 and 2, is Inspire. Innovate. Celebrate.

What are some of the highlights of the program?

As the premier event in North America for ingredients, formulations, and service innovations, NYSCC Suppliers’ Day is the go-to forum for the latest trends, scientific findings, global ingredients, raw materials and solutions that will invigorate formulations and accelerate beauty and personal care product development.

Our powerful theme of “Inspire. Innovate. Celebrate.” will be woven throughout Suppliers’ Day and be evident end-to-end at the Javits Center.  Inspiration will be leveraged from all sources to influence innovation in beauty and personal care. The NYSCC Chapter’s 70-year legacy will be celebrated along with all that the industry creates and has accomplished. 

I am thrilled to announce the exhibit floor is sold-out with 560+ global companies showcasing novel ingredients, inspirational formulations, advanced processing and testing equipment, and more. 

Dynamic areas on the expansive show floor will provide an enhanced attendee experience including the Innovations Theater, Main Stage and the growing INDIE 360° Pavilion with 16+-juried brands. The Technical Poster Presentations Showcase returns along with University Row.

New this year is the Inspiration Zone, featuring breakthrough innovations from worldwide ingredient and formulation suppliers curated by BEAUTYSTREAMS. This area will inspire product development teams to take their creativity and brand formulations to the next level.  Plug-In To Inspiration Charging Station will feature a look in the rear view mirror to the decades of inspiration spearheaded by the NYSCC, while the Head Shot Studio will offer attendees an opportunity to share what inspired them on the Suppliers’ Day show floor.

We also continue our nurturing and support of the next generation of chemists with the expansion of our Mentor/Mentee Program and the Future Chemists Workshop (FCW) with even more colleges and universities participating. Coming full circle, sci-comm influencer, Jane Tsui (@janetheChemist) will be the featured speaker at the FCW, and she was one of the first students of the program nearly a decade ago. The co-sponsored SCC & NYSCC Career Development Day will also be part of the event.

Our Awards Night celebration, “The Future of Beauty”, will take place after the first day of the show. This Met Gala-inspired event will be filled with experiential art, Afro Latin culture and Modern History performances.  The finalists of the CEW Beauty Supplier’s Award will be revealed and will be a glamorous evening for renewing partnerships, creating new ones, and acknowledging the important drivers of innovation that exemplify the core spirit of Suppliers’ Day!

How many workshops will be offered?

There are 100+ hours of scientific and marketing conference sessions and curated educational programsbeing offered at Suppliers’ Day, starting with the full day Pre-Conference SCC CEP Courses on Tuesday, April 30th that cover Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry, and Advanced Skin Science. Three programs led by the NYSCC Scientific Advisory Committee will focus on Hair: Inspiration & Innovation, Biotechnology in Beauty & Personal Care, and Inspiration & Innovation in NutriCosmetics.  Industry media partners helm two lunch and learns focused on The Future of the Cosmetic Industry: Challenges & Opportunities, and Fragrance: The Invisible Art.  NYSCC is also partnering with CACPA again for a technical program that will uncover the forefront of advancements within the Chinese beauty industry.

PCPC and its European counterpart, IKW, will present Cosmetic Regulation – Building Successful Compliance, and the INDIE 360° conference program, presented by IBA, will cover every angle of being a successful independent beauty brand:  from marketing to packaging, supply chain, regulatory, and how ingredient suppliers define “INDIE.”

Hallmarks of the NYSCC Suppliers’ Day educational program will return with updated content including: Discover Sustainability, Digital Age of Beauty, World of Chemistry and Microbiome: Inside Out Beauty.

The Innovations & Innovators Theater features the latest ingredients, formulations, technologies and solutions--some being introduced in North America for the first time. The theater will also have presentations on What’s Hot in Latin America, as well as California Dreaming, sponsored by Beauty Industry West (BIW), featuring INDIE innovators from these fertile regions.  The Main Stage will have a Keynote presentation from a leading science-driven brand as well as Hot Topics including Sustainable Development in the Cosmetic Sector and Innovations from the Inspiration Zone. 

Which partner associations will be presenting?

NYSCC Suppliers’ Day is designed by the industry for the industry.  We work closely with leading trade associations that are committed to helping the beauty and personal care industry innovate and grow.  Thank you to SOFW for being our media partner on “Cosmetic Regulation:  Building Successful Compliance,” presented by PCPC (Personal Care Products Council) and IKW, the German Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery and Detergent Association.  

IBA (Independent Beauty Association) is spearheading our INDIE 360° conference program and co-sponsoring the INDIE Pavilion with CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women).
