Eastern Buying Conference 2016 to Be Held in East Rutherford, New Jersey

The next Eastern Buying Conference will not be—as previously announced—at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, New Jersey, April 2-3, Beauty Store Business has learned.

Instead, it is returning to a site longtime exhibitors and attendees are more familiar with: East Rutherford, New Jersey, where it was held for many years before moving to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and then to Somerset this past April.

The new venue is the Hilton Meadowlands, which used to be the Sheraton Meadowlands—near the Meadowlands Sports Complex and 13 miles from New York City.

In addition, the EBC 2016 dates have been moved to one week later than previously announced: April 9-10 (a Saturday and a Sunday, with setup on Friday, April 8).

There will be a "Casino Night" April 9 after the show's annual buffet dinner.

As in past years, reimbursements will be offered. The show will reimburse a distributorship for one free room night per distributorship if its business address is 75 or more miles from the hotel (2 Meadowlands Plaza, East Rutherford, NJ 07073). Also, there will be a travel reimbursement of up to $100.

Look for more information and updates at the show's website,
