IMATS New York 2014


IMATS New York is just a few days away on April 11th-13th in the heart of midtown Manhattan at Pier 94. Widely known as the largest gathering of make-up artists and held in the top metropolitan cities around the world, IMATS brings together thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts to discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. We are excited to return to New York for IMATS after an amazing show last year.
