Nominations for 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award now open

Winner to be announced at in-cosmetics 2013

Nominations are now open for the second in-cosmetics Lifetime Achievement Award, which aims to honour individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry. The winner of the award will be announced at the in-cosmetics 2013 show at Porte de Versailles in Paris, on 16 April.

In 2010, the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award attracted more than 1,800 public votes and was presented to Dr Alain Khaiat.

Its return in 2013 is a testament to the inspirational personalities and the continuing strength of the sector. We look forward to awarding the winner in Paris.”
