In a letter to the industry, NYSCC Chairman of the Board Giorgino D. Macalino explained, '...based on the results of a NYSCC survey to members and the Suppliers’ Day community, as well as the still evolving effects of COVID-19 pandemic including travel restrictions, the NYSCC Executive Board has made the hard decision to not hold Suppliers' Day this year.'
Macalino continued, "Next year, Suppliers’ Day will return to its traditional timeframe: May 4-5, 2021 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. NYSCC is unwilling to compromise the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors and team. We are also unwilling to deliver what we feel would be a sub-standard Suppliers’ Day experience this year.
"While we are disappointed to forego having the event this year, we feel that it is the right decision for everyone involved. Although we currently can’t meet in-person, NYSCC is committed now more than ever in delivering high quality content through our Webinar Intensive Program and 'At Home Live Series.'
"In addition, access to resources and suppliers through our Digital Pop-Up & Solutions Center, as well as Cosmetic Raws searchable database provides networking and engagement. As the leading non-profit organization for cosmetic chemists, NYSCC will continue to help our members as well as the beauty and personal care community be as successful as possible in this ever-changing environment."

"We are truly grateful for this great industry’s continued loyalty and trust of NYSCC and Suppliers’ Day in these unprecedented times, and we thank you for supporting our mission of advancing cosmetic science in a safe and effective way!"
