71st Annual Scientific Meeting & Technology Showcase

December 11-12, 2017 at The Westin New York at Times Square

The Society has been hard at work to re-imagine an event that will present the highest caliber of science and networking opportunities. In a new location for the first time in decades, The Westin New York at Times Square Hotel, this year’s Annual Meeting is an event you won't want to miss. Register today at the early bird rate ending May 31, 2017!

The SCC has increased the number of invited speakers programmed to deliver the latest research in Cosmetic Science and Innovation. What's more exciting, the room rate for this year's event is drastically lower than it was in 2015. At $299 per night, attendees will enjoy a savings of $150 (another year at the Hilton Towers would have raised the room rate to $449) during the holiday season. It's all the more reason to ensure that once you have registered for the Annual Meeting, you quickly reserve your room, as the room block is expected to fill quickly.
