NEW YORK — Organizers of the HBA Health & Beauty America conference are preparing for their 11th annual trade show, which takes place Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. Executives from HBA, a show touted as the beauty industry’s leading event for marketing, packaging and technical solutions, are pointing to several highlights they hope will make this year’s annual event stand apart from past shows.

For starters, HBA, which is managed by CMP Princeton Inc., will launch several packaging innovations, according to Jack Gonzalez, director of Health & Beauty Events for CMP. Thick-walled plastic containers made of co-polyesters, for example, have been designed by Eastman Chemical, with the look and feel of glass.

There’s also the first-time industry donation of $10,000 to Evelyn Lauder, on behalf of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, to be presented at the HBA Industry Awards Dinner on Sept. 30 at the New York Hilton.

Rounding out the show are an estimated 40 seminars and classes. Some of the scheduled speakers include Edward E. Kavanaugh, president of CTFA; Tony Gill, co-founder of Tony & Tina; Lia Braaten, global design manager for P&G beauty care; Marsha Brooks, global marketing director, fragrances, Coty; Paolo Giacomoni, executive director of research and development at Clinique, and Todd First, general manager of Jane Cosmetics.
