Nearly 500 industry leaders from around the world have gathered at the Personal Care Products Council’s 120th Annual Meeting to discuss global business opportunities, emerging consumer trends and elect new officers, the Council announced today.
Council President and CEO Lezlee Westine said the agenda mirrored the industry’s constant efforts to improve and innovate. “Each year we try to top the previous year’s conference and we are thrilled once again to have a variety of panels and thought provoking keynote speakers to inspire our members,” said Westine.
“One of the most exciting things to look forward to in 2014 is Look Good Feel Better’s 25th Anniversary celebration,” said Scott Beattie, President and CEO of Elizabeth Arden and Council Board Chairman. He noted how effective the Council’s Foundation has been in providing nearly 1.5 million women worldwide with unique workshops that improve cancer patients’ self-esteem and quality of life.
“We are extremely proud of the industry’s commitment to this program and are grateful for its generous support,” said Beattie during his welcoming address.
Beattie, who was re-elected to a second term as Council Chairman, summarized the Council’s 2013 accomplishments, including the industry’s work with the FDA to modernize the nation’s regulatory structure.
He also noted successful efforts to promote international collaboration and said, “progress is being made, and we plan to add other long-term areas of cooperation to the agenda and expand it to other countries in due course.”
