I will be attending the upcoming HBA Global Expo and I’m very excited! The Expo has been held for 17 consecutive years to educate, inform and connect professionals in the cosmetic, fragrance and personal care industry. For three days attendees have the chance to attend workshops, conferences and keynotes as well as attend the 100s of booths to try new products. I am especially looking forward to the beauty forecast 2011 presentation and to try out many of the new products. I will be live tweeting throughout the event so if you’re not following me on Twitter please join the fun!
This year HBA is honoring supermodel, Christie Brinkley with their 2nd Annual Positively Beautiful Award for her philanthropic efforts with Smile Train. Smile Train provides free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries and free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals. The Positively Beautiful award honors a celebrity that has used their talents to further a cause that champions inner beauty and self esteem. We look forward to being a part of this year’s wonderful event!
