Traveling with a buddy—always more fun. And sharing costs—always smart. The California Trade Alliance (CTA) helps emerging and established beauty brands exhibit at shows around the world by being part of their larger presence in their California Pavilion.
Two new trade activities have been added this year: the California Pavilion will be at Cosmoprof India and Beauty Buyer Meetings | Middle East. At last year’s India Cosmoprof show last June, 13 brands from the United States exhibited.
According to CTA, India is the next frontier and participating in the California Pavilion offers brands a platform where their brand can enter and grow in the market.
A hosted Beauty Buyer Meeting platform sets-up pre-scheduled meetings with overseas buyers from retail, e-tail, home shopping TV, pharmacies, spas, and luxury retail. They will focus on specific regions where growth is strong and are underrepresented by trade shows.

What makes these Buyer Meetings unique:
1. The participants are limited to USA beauty brands only.

3. CTA is working with most US States and Department of Commerce to provide initial funding to minimize cost and expand exports.
