SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bay Area Beauty Association, started by multiple industry veterans and executives who were unable to constantly travel to Los Angeles or New York for industry events and community support, have successfully launched the organization and membership platform as of the end of April. The Bay Area Beauty Association (BABA) will be hosting their second event in San Francisco on May 19th at the Loews Regency Hotel with sponsors who include Perricone MD and Kryolan Professional Makeup, both of which have headquarters in San Francisco, and a surprise guest speaker in the technology / retail space.
"We are really humbled and appreciative of the outpour of support from the local beauty community, other organizations and the trade. Our first event had an impressive turn out including all the large players in the industry like Sephora, Benefit, EVER by Stella & Dot, Rodan & Fields, P&G, investment bankers and other smaller indie brands. We are clearly fulfilling a need in this area and it is our goal to develop and strengthen the beauty industry community, plus provide valuable education and workshops unlike no other. SF and Silicon Valley lead the tech industry and we have so much at our disposal in our backyard. We need to leverage that and help bring more disruptive innovation to our members, especially in e-commerce and the digital space and BABA will be that resource among other things," said Sinead Norenius, BABA Board Member.
With vast amounts of brands, manufacturers, suppliers, packaging companies, e-commerce and technology companies and a thriving resort and spa community, BABA is definitely on to something with corporate members like Anisa International, DHC Skincare, Perricone MD and Peninsula Beauty already on board. Individual members have also joined since launch.
They have two other events scheduled for 2016 on September 14th and December 7th along with various monthly webinars being announced at the May 19th event.
