MakeUp in NewYork has become a must… Here are the reasons why!

2016-09-09This was the general feeling when the show closed its doors on September 8 in the evening: this sixth edition of MakeUp in NewYork will certainly be remembered as a great vintage! Figures and testimonials from exhibitors below clearly prove it! Over two days, more than 2,800 quality visitors crowded the aisles of the show on the four levels of the Center 548 in Manhattan, more than 900 visitors attended the conferences, and no less than three hundred people applauded the winners of the great inter-university contest singling out the most innovative packaging design of the year. Yes, definitely yes, MakeUp in NewYork 2016 was a great vintage! And the twenty journalists on the spot could also see it for themselves!

Big thanks again to the 900 visitors who registered to the two-day conference program and to the 26 speakers of the 15 conferences that were held during the show at the Center 548. A big thank too, to the CIBS, the CEW and to the F.I.T. and its students as well as to the students from the Houston, Wisconsin, Rutgers and Esepac Universities for taking part “wholeheartedly” to the contest and for submitting “top level” innovations to the seven jury members of Mac Cosmetics, Christian Dior, Estée Lauder, L’Oréal, Map My Beauty and the FIT. Here are the first comments from the laureates: “We are incredibly grateful to have received this opportunity with MakeUp in NewYork, said Jessica from the University of Houston who finished first. As upcoming industrial designers and young professionals, we were thrilled to explore the makeup industry through the eyes of packaging manufacturers, cosmetic retailers and more international makeup experts. As industrial design students, we are exposed to a wide variety of industries, and this conference provided us with a behind-the-scenes understanding of the makeup experience from innovation to application” “Makeup in NewYork has been a great experience from an academic as well as a professional point of view, insisted Brian from Rutgers University (3rd place). It allowed me to be more familiar with new products, technology and people in the industry.”

“I would like to warmly thank you and all your team for the fantastic organization of MakeUp in NewYork, said Christophe from the French university Esepac. It was a great opportunity to meet important packaging suppliers and cosmetic players. We have developed and confirmed some strong partnerships with Rutgers University and TEXEN. ESEPAC Students and I have appreciated the packaging content organized with US packaging schools.”

Clear-cut testimonials

We were impressed by the ever increasing quantity and “quality” of visitors. The organization this year was so good it was almost perfect! Make-up in New York has definitely established itself as a crucial event to get in close contact with clients also thanks to its successfully essential format. We’re always happy to participate to the MakeUp in exhibitions, especially in the US, which is becoming an increasingly influential and strategic market!

The MakeUp in NewYork is the place to be!

The 2016 edition of MakeUp in NewYork was up to our expectations. For TEXEN it is an crucial meeting place to meet brands and their partners! We took advantage of this platform to interact with them and introduce our new range of packaging, full service and accessory solutions to capture, develop and put on the market always more rapidly innovative and quality products. A real success!

MakeUp in NewYork was a great show again this year and a wonderful venue!

The show for us was great.
We had a lot of meetings organized and everyone loved the way the booth was set up.

This 2016 edition of the MakeUp in NewYork show can be described as a reflection of the ongoing dynamism of our sector in the United States. But not only… we also welcomed visitors from all over the world. The two days passed really fast and we look forward to continuing inspiring and powering the success of our business partners. Congratulations once again to you and your team for making these Make Up shows an institution!

Thank you so much and congratulations to the whole team for this very successful show! Outstanding organization, nice atmosphere, pleasant location and great meetings!

Hope you are great and rested a bit after the intensive previous week.
I would like to thank you for the possibility you gave us to exhibit at MakeUp in NewYork this year. We were extremely busy during these two days having meetings with the top-tier companies mainly from the States, but not only. This confirms the highest quality of the event and its extremely important position in the calendar of industry shows. Noteworthy, the venue this year was incomparably better than the one from the last year, and so was the quality of the booths and the furniture. Also, I really appreciate your responsiveness to all our remarks and requests.
Thank you again and see you in New York next year!

MakeUp in NewYork has a lively pulse and a super engaged audience of attendees. We were so thrilled with the response we received for the launch of all our new patented innovation products. We were able to meet familiar faces and also new ones that will lead to great partnerships and successful business relationships. Thank you MakeUp in NewYork!

Thank you so much for having me as a partner speaker with Leila. It was such a great time.

Thank you for the opportunity. I very much enjoyed it and would be happy to participate any other time.

It was a great pleasure. My team was delighted.

Thank you for giving us such an opportunity. Congratulations for attracting so many people in two days! Your show concept continues to amaze me year by year, through its structure, the interest shown by customers visiting it and its simplicity. As always we will love to be back next year.

It was a pleasure, thank you for all your hard work organizing the show.
“MakeUp in NewYork remains an attractive venue for Albéa to continue our relationships and build new ones with influential brands in the USA.”

Great Show, Great business contacts in a very New Yorker location. Thanks to all of you.

This by far has been the best MakeUP in NewYork show to date! Our current clients were so happy with the quality of suppliers. We were thrilled with the new contacts that we had the opportunity to meet with. Attendance was great and the quality of companies walking the show was superb! Great networking and business building opportunities.

Merci !!!!!! It was such a privilege to be part of the organization. Everything was perfect, we were so happy to have a full room for our session.

Thank you very much for your great support during MakeUp in NewYork. From what I can see MakeUp in NewYork has progressed a lot compared to the past several years. We had good meetings with customers. We consider MakeUp in NewYork is the best professional show of its kind in the world.

The New York show was as good as the Paris show. With our new & innovative products, our customers were satisfied and surprised. Our customer told us that C&C International was a highly interesting company to meet at this show.

As anticipated with you in NY, we are very satisfied about the show. We got a lot of meetings: regular and new customers also. The booth location this year was good and all the services were perfect.

Thank you for this wonderful organization. MUNY was a very good show for us and we were very touched by the kindness of the whole team. We were delighted with our participation in MakeUp in NewYork 2016: many visitors and interesting projects. We saw both small confidential brands and large US or international groups. Our products really grabbed the attention (especially our novelty: the Mascara Samples) and our strong development in the US is confirmed!

We enjoyed participating at MakeUp in NewYork again this year and were pleased with our results from the event. Congratulations on another successful show!

Back in Paris and delighted with my experience as a speaker! I wanted in turn to thank you and congratulate you for this highly successful edition!!

Thank you all for inviting CIBS to be a part of it! It was a wonderful show for us and we look forward to being a part of it again next year.

It was, as usual, a very positive experience and the organisation was also very good. Thanks to Beauteam to make a very international professional show. See you next time !

MakeUp in NewYork, the perfect blend of our industry for a 6th straight year. Eisen sharpeners continues to be excited about our partnership with the MakeUp in Team.

Great show, very well organized. Good contacts and great interest in our Made in Italy and tailor-made cosmetic brushes. Very satisfied in taking part to Muny 2016 and a big thanks to the whole Beauteam staff!

A well organized show and a very easy going staff. We felt very comfortable in our small booth. Good affluence of visitors, but without stress.
The experience was very positive. Thanks to the whole team!

First of all: Congratulations to a great MakeUp in NewYork show 2016!

MUNY was a fruitful and worthy show for us.
The quality of attendees was up to our expectations, and it was a good opportunity to meet with existing customers to discuss about new projects.

A new, exciting show in NY, where we must be in!

A Beautiful 2016 New York edition. We welcomed key players in the “US Beauty industry” as well as emerging brands. Lovely atmosphere during the two days. A very profitable show for AIRCOS.

We had a great show this year and are looking forward to MakeUp in LosAngeles 2017.
Our location at the show was very helpful.
Overall we had a great experience and are looking forward to future shows!

Congratulations on another successful MakeUp in NewYork event again!!
Excellent location, great show and the view from the roof top is spectacular. However, sorry that I missed the students design award ceremony because I had to leave early for my teaching assignment that day.
Thanks again for connecting Rutgers with ESEPAC. We will have a joint project starting next spring and it may lead to a joint international master program. We won’t be able to do this without your help and support!
Please feel free to let me know if I can be of any assistance in the future. I am looking forward to your next great event again.

We want to thank you again for putting together another wonderful show. The crowd was great and we look forward to another exceptional show next year.

Yes!! We had a great show..Thanks for your supports…

This new edition is, as usual for Strand Cosmetics Europe, an opportunity to reinforce our position on the US market by promoting our made in France know-how to famous US brands. Hopefully additional business will emerge thanks to this great show.


Very good attendance, including brands from California.
We were busy nonstop for two days, much more people stopping by our booth compared to last year.
Thank you so much for organizing another fabulous edition of MakeUp in NewYork! Everything was very well prepared and we really enjoyed being in Manhattan. We met a lot of existing and potential customers as well as various business partners. A truly great event for the cosmetics industry!

SeaCliff met with many of existing and new customers and we are so grateful to participate in this show year after year with many new connections and business opportunities. We look forward to the next MakeUp in LosAngeles show.

It was a pleasure to be part of this successful, 6th edition of MakeUp in NewYork.
As a matter of fact, Cosmecca was able to have many casual & official meetings with our valuable customers. Again great thanks to Beauteam for your hard work. Hope we can have some more good results in LA.

Fantastic networking environment and as always an opportunity to discover and meet new partners for the benefit of future innovative launches.

A unique event for the USA make-up market , a great experience and an excellent showcase for our made in Italy products.

We are very satisfied with our participation in this 2016 edition, because beyond the opportunity of meeting our direct and indirect customers in an exceptional New York setting, the show enables us to immerse in the world of makeup, a market with lots of product innovations, where emerge new trends and the looks of the consumers of tomorrow. We also appreciated the fact “Technique” was put in the spotlight with the Innovation Tree products. A more than ever key event in the world of Make Up, for brands and converters alike, and a continually reinforced international dimension that promises us great common prospects.

Taiki had a very good show experience with many successful meetings with current customers and new interactions with potential clients. Overall, it was a perfect place to showcase our extensive product range to the industry.

Very good show !

Good and quality meetings with the key actors of the Beauty sector ! Well done !

It’s the first time that we participate this show, MakeUp in show is not a big event, but its delicacy and professional impressed us very much. Not only the professional of the visitors, but also the good selection of the exhibitors, in the well organized environment ,both exhibitors and visitors can come into contact with the core requirement in just 2 days. Thank you again for all your efforts! See you in Seoul.

S & J
Good show. Lot of brands visiting both big name and local new entry. Although the visitors might not be familiar with S&J (eg. ask where we are from), they are quite interested in our products.

This year ALKOS Group introduced Jonathan CHUNG, who recently joined the Group and our team as US Sales Manager: that is why we had a larger booth, ideally located in front of the Innovation Tree.
New contacts of key US players have told us they “discovered top quality products” and were surprised by the very large offer of ALKOS Group.
The Team was happy to note that once again, our innovative products were perfectly fitting the US demand. We quickly ran out of samples, which is a very good sign.
See you next year with great pleasure ! And THANK YOU again for a top organization!

We were extremely pleased with the results. The innovation tree was a BIG PLUS for us also. Outstanding service bringing us many potential future business partners.
