Beautycon CEO Moj Mahdara told The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s also our first year to offer ‘B-well,’ which is an area of 20 to 30 brands showcasing supplements and nutritional items focused on well-being, and ‘K-town,’ because Korean beauty is a billion-dollar industry globally, with $996 million funneled into the US and our market is super-duper interested in international products.

Our other goal is to build the ultimate retail experiential pop-up in the beauty market. The numbers we’re seeing on the consumer spend are mind-blowing. People come to Beautycon to shop!”
