The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors Association recently presented its seventh annual CITY Awards recognizing Cosmetic Innovators of the Year. The awards presentation was held at 3 West Club in New York City as part of ICMAD’s 37th annual convention.
More than 100 ICMAD members attended the award’s ceremony and heard remarks from the association’s President Pamela Jo Busiek of CBI Laboratories who said, “The CITY Awards represent dedication, effort and creativity by members of ICMAD and recognize the innovations that independent companies bring to the beauty industry. For me, the CITY Awards represent everything that makes our business so dynamic.”
The winners were selected by a panel of judges comprised of advertising, marketing and sales executives with experience, but no current affiliations, in the cosmetic industry.
The awards were presented by Dr. Stephanie McClellan, M.D. in the areas of product, package design, sales and marketing innovation. Visit icmad.org.
