The California Trade Alliance (CTA) provides the platforms for brands to grow internationally. We introduce brands to established vetted international buyers. Connect with us over a quick Zoom Meeting to learn how to get involved. We love to meet brands and learn about what their needs are currently. It is our passion to provide effective business-minded solutions to your exporting struggles.
We host Beauty Buyer Meetings that bring together US beauty brands and international buyers for two and half days of one-on-one meetings, shared meals and entertainment. The Beauty Buyer Meetings are held in regions that are lacking a sound business to business trade show, but ripe with demand and growth opportunity.
Each year we manage a California/USA pavilion at the largest international business to business beauty trade shows. The pavilion has become a destination for buyers at these shows as they know the brands showcase innovation, performance and quality ingredients. Upcoming shows include Cosmoprof Bologna, Beautyworld Dubai, Cosmoprof India and Cosmoprof Hong Kong.
