Nixo Patio Lounge
1020 S Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, California

We love Los Angeles and the vibrant indie cosmetic and personal care community throughout Southern California. That’s why we’ve created a unique and exclusive opportunity to meet thought leaders and decision-makers in downtown Los Angeles. Following Day One of Luxe Pack LA and Makeup In LA conferences, our cocktail reception is the official networking event during the show.

Join us at the beautiful Nixo Patio Lounge in the E-Central Hotel for cocktails at our open bar and hors d’oeuvres.  At the event, IBA will also present a live “Sci-Comm” influencer panel to discuss Truth in Beauty.
