The finalists for the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors’ seventh annual CITY (Cosmetic Innovator of The Year) Awards were announced last week.

Unlike the Oscars most years, there isn’t a clear favorite for one CITY nominee to win really big with something—such as five of the prestigious awards.

Nevertheless, please get your ballots out, ladies and gents ...

Here’s who could be winning CITYs—usually, one per category—during the dinner ceremony June 20 at the Manhattan Penthouse in New York City along with my picks (not that I have a say in any of this).

If you’re a beauty-products supplier—and I know that a lot of you read Beauty Store Business online—I urge your company to participate in the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors’ 2012 CITY (Cosmetic Innovator of The Year) Awards program.

This year’s program is no doubt bigger and better than the previous six—and in 2012 your business doesn’t even have to be an ICMAD member. Also, as BSB tweeted on April 23, the deadline for submissions has been extended to May 11.

I’ll be at two exciting Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors Association events at The Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach, California, later this week.

I’ll have opportunities to network with many top West Coast beauty executives and VIPs across numerous product categories in an atmosphere quite different than the loud hustle and bustle of a major cash-and-carry salon-industry trade show or the constant grind of yet another busy Cosmoprof North America.

The third annual Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange, a hosted buyer event with select beauty-product suppliers that’s limited to prequalified, high-volume, multilocation beauty buyers—including retailers—will take place on Feb. 20-23 at the Montage Laguna Beach in Laguna Beach, California. I can’t wait!

Sponsored by Beauty Store Business and its sister Creative Age Publications magazines, the dynamic and interactive event features one-on-one scheduled buyer appointments with suppliers as well as networking opportunities and educational sessions.
