MANILA, Philippines, Sept. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM ASEAN is pleased to announce the launch of PhilBeauty, a brand new international beauty trade show in the Philippines. This will be the only beauty show in the Philippines which offers local and international buyers and suppliers the opportunity to meet and network in a professional business environment.
With a population of almost 100 million, the Philippines is one of the largest beauty markets in South-East Asia. It enjoys positive economic growth and an expanding middle class. Rising disposable incomes have increased demand for grooming and personal care products, and international and domestic brands are eager to capitalize on the growth.
The Philippines International Beauty Conference 2014, which will be held alongside the 3-day exhibition, will be led by some of the most influential experts in the industry offering fresh insights into the most current issues and topical trends. The exhibition will also host several product knowledge workshops and seminars as part of the professional education programme.
"We are pleased to be a part of this fast-growing beauty market, and to help stimulate its development by providing a platform for buyers and trade professionals from the Philippines and surrounding region to network with local and international suppliers, forge partnerships and conduct business," said M Gandhi, Managing Director, UBM ASEAN Business.
Dr Mike Turvill, President of the Chamber of Cosmetics Industry of the Philippines (CCIP) welcomes the initiative: "With the abundance of natural resources, the Philippines has the potential to create a strong domestic industry. PhilBeauty will be an important showcase for domestic products and services, and to generate new business and infuse new ideas."
PhilBeauty will take place at the SMX Convention centre from 18-20 June 2014 in Manila, Philippines.
