When it comes to finding the newest up-and-coming brands, there’s no place like Cosmoprof North America. The show’s roots trace back to Bologna, Italy, in 1967. Originally established as a platform for beauty professionals, it brings together manufacturers, distributors and industry experts in the cosmetics and beauty sector.
