New York & The French Riviera - Ian Jamie's Travels

I attended two exhibitions in September, the ADF/PCD in New York & Lux Pack in Monaco 

New York 

I had never been to NY before, so it was a thrill & a treat flying into JFK & taking a taxi to the Empire State Building. 

My Hotel was on the 6th Avenue in Manhattan, Chelsea (sadly near the bomb), as was the Exhibition centre. I have to say though, my stay was quite expensive! 

At the Show, which was a take on Lux Pack, I met many Cosmetic & Beauty personnel – L’Oréal, Estee lauder, Coty, Elizabeth Arden & Kao Brands to name a few. These companies knew nothing about us and as such, it was interesting to hear about their market 

Since the Show I have followed up with e mails & phone calls & expect to receive our first order imminently 


It is always a pleasure going to the French Riviera. Flying into Nice and then taxing to Monaco can’t be beaten. It was also a pleasure to spend some time with Thorsten & Hervé and to discuss the political situation over a glass of wine. The Show was slightly disappointing, but nevertheless a few new contacts were made and old friends reunited. The Beauty Industry was well represented. The weather was warm & I swam in the sea every morning!
