2013 has been an exciting year so far. After last year's record success and this year's already improving economy, we are exceptionally busy. Even so, the Ropella team has carved out time to head to Paris this Spring for in-cosmetics (April 16th-18th).

This year, Ropella has had the opportunity to meet with many of its clients as well as key leaders they have placed at the American Cleaning Institute and the Personal Care Products Council - two of the leading personal care ingredients and personal care products marketplace tradeshows. We hope to see you at in-cosmetics in a couple of weeks!


We now offer you the flexibility of presenting this experiential learning either at your own campus or at a conference room in your community.

There are three options to bring it to you: Sponsorship, Co-Sponsorship, or Lite.
