If your business involves the making and selling of distinctive, custom-created soaps and cosmetics, you’ll want to mark your calendar for May 16, when the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Annual Conference opens in Dallas. Lightning Labels will be there, answering questions and sharing examples of its digitally printed soap labels and cosmetics labels.

This year’s four-day conference, planned for May 16-19, will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas. Attendance is expected to reach 600, offering everyone a chance to connect with industry peers, learn from business leaders and stay in touch with topics important to the handmade soap and cosmetics market. Show organizers promise that you’ll walk away with “fantastic ideas and a fire in your belly to make your business thrive.” The event will include intensive seminars, classes, and presentations, culminating with an awards dinner on the final day.

Soapers Showcase Seeking Entrants

As in past years, the 2019 Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Annual Conference will also feature a Soapers Showcase, in which conference attendees get the opportunity to enter their best soaps in a competition honoring accomplishments like Best Melt & Pour Soap, Best Scent, Best Packaging, and Best Conference-Themed Soap. Additionally, outstanding entries will be recognized with Best of Show and Hall of Fame designations.

Whether you’re angling for the Best Packaging award or striving to create the most attention-getting, sales-producing labels for your soap or cosmetics product, your success will depend on developing clear, creative branding that features engaging images and product descriptions that go above and beyond the usual mass-produced goods on the market.
