The New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists is holding a new Suppliers’ Day event in May to help visitors learn more about commercial opportunities in emerging economies such as India.
The ‘Discover India Symposium’ will be held on May 12 and 13 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center located in Edison, New Jersey.
It will include a programme of educational seminars on topics such as ‘Catering to diverse consumer needs in India’, ‘Male Grooming Product Markets, Innovations & Consumer Trends in India’ and ‘Cosmetics regulations in India.’
Previous Suppliers’ Day events organised by the NYSCC have focused on emerging markets such as Brazil and China.
A spokesperson for the event commented, “A member of the rising economic powers, otherwise known as the BRIC nations and a significant emerging market, India is the second largest country in the world with a population estimated to be about 1.252 billion. It has the 10th largest economy in the world, at 1.875 trillion dollars.
“As more companies are embracing globalization to reach new customers in new markets, a greater understanding of consumer preferences, important product types, and regulatory issues in this vast and growing market is essential.”
