Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) magazine announces that the presentation of its International Technology Awards will move to In-Cosmetics Paris in 2010—just in time for the event's 20-year celebration. These R&D-focused awards recognize significant new technologies as well as unique product campaigns for their importance and long-term impact on the cosmetics and personal care industry.
Held annually in the spring in a major European city, In-Cosmetics joins leading cosmetics R&D experts, suppliers, and production and marketing specialists from around the world to showcase a diverse range of ingredients and services—the perfect setting for C&T magazine to honor top innovators and marketers in the industry.
Regarding the repositioning of the awards, Rachel Grabenhofer, senior editor of C&T magazine, commented, "The awards were previously presented at HBA in New York, which was a great venue and built the industry's awareness of them. However, we wanted to raise their profile by presenting them on an international stage at an event that is highly focused on what the awards represent: innovation within cosmetics R&D. In-Cosmetics became the clear choice."
Grabenhofer added that presenting the awards where competitors and colleagues gather under one roof is sure to spark some healthy competition. "Knowing the awards will be presented among peers and competitors should encourage innovators to nominate one another—and the more who participate, the better."
C&T magazine will soon issue a call for submissions. Information will be posted at www.CosmeticsandToiletries.com.
