HONG KONG, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cosmoprof Asia returns in November with "One Fair, Two Venues", following a record breaking year. 76,818 visitors from 129 countries and regions attended Cosmoprof Asia 2016, an increase of 21% from the previous year. 2,698 exhibiting companies from 49 countries and regions, including 24 country and group pavilions took up 98,000 sqm of space at the two venues. With such impressive growth year-on-year, Cosmoprof Asia has firmly confirmed its position as the most powerful networking event for the beauty industry in Asia Pacific.
Alice Suen, Cosmoprof Asia Event Director, applauded the creativity of exhibitors last year. "We were inspired by the innovative products and services on display and the high calibre of our exhibitors once again drew in buyers from all around the world. We look forward to an even more important event this year."
New for 2017: Cosmopack Asia
The 22th edition of Cosmoprof Asia will draw attention to the cosmetics supply chain with the rebranding of the event at AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) from 14 to 16 November as "Cosmopack Asia", mirroring Cosmopack, held in Bologna, Italy, alongside Cosmoprof Worldwide.
"With the development of Cosmopack Asia, we aim to reinforce the brand identity of the entire supply chain and create new business opportunities for our customers", says Enrico Zannini, Director of Cosmoprof Worldwide.
Cosmopack Asia will host companies representing the entire cosmetics supply chain: raw materials and ingredients, contract manufacturing and private label, machinery, primary and secondary packaging. Cosmopack Asia will open one day before Cosmoprof Asia on 14 November and this gives brands, including those exhibiting at HKCEC, plenty of time to visit the many suppliers from all over the world at AWE. Shuttle bus service will be provided during the entire show period to connect the two show venues.
A spotlight at Cosmopack Asia will be the new zone "Ingredients & Lab" dedicated to ingredients, fragrances, testing lab equipment and regulatory solutions, providing an ideal networking and sourcing platform for formulators, R&D personnel, business development and marketing professionals. In addition to the new Ingredients & Lab, Cosmopack Asia will also introduce Print & Label, which will be a showcase of decorative packaging and labels.
Featured marketing initiatives will be organised with the focus on new concepts, designs and innovative technologies that aligned to the entire supply chain. The headline event will be "The Powder Factory" which gives live demonstration on the manufacturing process of a cosmetic powder with the collaboration of leading international suppliers.
Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre
From 15 to 17 November, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) will host exhibitors of finished products ranging from cosmetics & toiletries, natural & organic, beauty salon, hair salon and nail and accessories.
At HKCEC an exciting new addition will be "Discover Trends" allowing visitors to see the most cutting edge and trendsetting beauty brands launched onto the market. New products in the home beauty devices area will be on display along with baby care as well as Halal beauty products. The "Natural & Organic" sector will display an eco-friendly and organic range alongside the Wellness and Spa products focusing on the wellbeing industry.
The Cosmoprof Awards will be the benchmark of excellence and a jury comprising international beauty experts, bloggers and top beauty brands will select the winners for the most outstanding accomplishments in beauty. The "Innovation Circle" award will recognise achievements in packaging, design and formulation and the "Beauty Circle" award will celebrate the most impressive finished product.
Cosmotalks is a four-day immersive experience offering a strong knowledge programme with a range of innovative, creative and cutting-edge sessions delivered by leading industry experts. Sessions at AWE will cover topics on packaging innovation, ingredients and formulation to enhance professional knowledge on the transformational power of technology and innovation on the business landscape. HKCEC will host dynamic, innovative, 'bite-sized' sessions covering a wide variety of topics including sustainability, industry research, market trends and the latest key issues and hot topics dedicated to the beauty industry.
