Following its record-breaking success last year, Cosmoprof Asia will be introducing Cosmopack Asia, a ‘show within the show’, at this year’s event.
With 2698 exhibitors over 98,000 sqm of space, Cosmoprof Asia 2016 attracted 76,818 visitors from 129 countries and regions ‒ 21 percent more than in 2015.
Cosmoprof Asia event director Alice Suen said the impressive year-on-year growth firmly confirmed its position as the most powerful networking event for the beauty industry in Asia Pacific.
Building on the success, Cosmoprof Asia will run Cosmopack Asia alongside the main show this year.
Focusing on the cosmetics supply chain, Cosmopack Asia mirrors Cosmopack, which is held in Bologna alongside Cosmoprof Worldwide.
Cosmoprof Worldwide director Enrico Zannini says Cosmopack will “reinforce the brand identity of the entire supply chain and create new business opportunities for our customers”.
“Cosmopack Asia will host companies representing the cosmetics supply chain ‒ raw materials and ingredients, contract manufacturing and private label, machinery, primary and secondary packaging”.
Cosmopack will also include an ‘Ingredients & Lab’ zone dedicated to ingredients, fragrances, testing lab equipment and regulatory solutions which provides “an ideal networking and sourcing platform for formulators, R&D personnel, business development and marketing professionals”.
