AN UNMET NEED
Founded by celebrity esthetician, Jillian Wright, and entrepreneur, Nader Naeymi-Rad, the Indie Beauty Expo was established to help the fast-growing category of indie brands connect to Buyers, Press and Consumers. Unsatisfied with the options available, Jillian and Nader formed IBE to provide a solution specific to market-ready indie brands.
A PARTNER FOR GROWTH
IBE debuted in New York City in August of 2015 and has rapidly grown to become the largest professionally-curated exposition of independent beauty, lifestyle and wellness brands. To date, IBE has helped hundreds of brands from around the world and across different categories along their journey towards commercial success.
A SCALABLE PLATFORM
IBE is presented in three top strategic retail markets in N. America: NY, LA, and Dallas. IBE takes place over three days with segments for Brands, Buyers, Press and Shoppers. IBE has also launched a range of new services, including: Best in Show awards, IBE TV media channel, Anthology show book, CONNECT INDIE education, and Retail Advisory services for Buyers.
