The trade show Perfume Expo America (PXA) will be held in New York City on June 9 through the 12th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center:
PXA is a selective event where classic and emerging perfume brands as well as skin care and cosmetic lines can present to independent American perfumeries, department stores buyers, duty free operators, selective pharmacies, apothecary stores, speciality stores and the press.
This year, PXA will be opening its doors to bloggers and blog readers on Thursday, June 11 (9-6) and Friday, June 12 (9-Noon):
...join the industry to celebrate the renaissance of true perfumery. Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to participate in Perfume workshops, vote for a perfume award, visit a perfume museum from Grasse, participate in beauty polls and surveys and of course sample many fragrances.
