In just a few short days, I’ll be taking my maiden voyage to Las Vegas. Let’s not dwell on the fact that I’ve never been (shhh!) and instead focus on the reason for my trip: lots and lots of beauty, skincare, cosmetics and hair products.
I tend to be attracted to bright, colorful shiny things like a moth to a flame and harbor a not-so-secret love of neon signs, but the real reason for my trip is work. I’ll be attending Cosmoprof North America, a cosmetics and beauty products trade show at Mandalay Bay.
My partner in crime will be the fabulous Polish Pauper, a dear friend and fellow blogger who was the driving force behind what looks to be one heck of a trip. Cosmoprof is so massive, it’s a little scary, even for this die-hard beauty product lover.
Check the stats for this event, which runs July 31-Aug. 2:
- 182,986 square feet of exhibition space
- 700 exhibitors from countries around the globe, including Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, Egypt, Israel, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and many more.
Polish Pauper and I will be rolling 17-deep with a pack of fellow beauty bloggers (thoughtfully curated by Polish Galore) and we’ll be checking out emerging brands and trends for 2012.
