Cosmoprof Asia 2023 will return to its home town of Hong Kong for its 26th edition.
Cosmopack Asia will be held from November 14 to 16 at AsiaWorld-Expo, gathering the main global leaders of the supply chain, including ingredients, machinery & equipment, packaging, contract manufacturing and private label. Meanwhile, Cosmoprof Asia, running from November 15 to 17 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, will feature the most innovative beauty branded products dedicated to retail and professional distribution channels.
After 2022’s successful special edition in Singapore, Cosmoprof Asia 2023 will settle back in its original home. More than 2,000 exhibitors are attending the show, and over 60,000 visitors are expected to visit the fair to discover new products and the trends. The exhibition area, reaching 100,000 sqm, will once again be the home of the leading beauty brands and most innovative suppliers of the Asia-Pacific region.
Further indicating the international presence of this year’s show, more than 20 Group and Country Pavilions are expected. Among them Australia, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Korea, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and the USA have already confirmed their presence.
As always, buyers from all over the world will be welcomed, while this year higher attendance is expected from China, Asia Pacific countries, Europe and the USA. Thanks to the Buyer Program, the signature campaign developed by the Cosmoprof network, and the show’s exclusive Match&Meet platform, networking and connections will be facilitated between wholesalers, distributors, importers, brand owners, contract and packaging manufacturers across categories including beauty salon, Spa & Wellness, retail, e-commerce, OEM and EDM.
To meet the expectations of companies and operators attending Cosmoprof Asia 2023, special areas dedicated to selected segments help to focus attention on key trends in the Asia-Pacific region.
For example, PRESTIGE PACKAGING OEM/ODM will host premium companies presenting innovative packaging solutions and manufacturing technologies. Exhibitors in this area will benefit from an exclusive all-inclusive onsite and online program, and special promotions throughout the fair.
In addition, BEAUTY TECH will be specifically dedicated to the retail sector and brands interested in new and innovative ways to connect to consumers. The area will give visibility to cutting-edge devices and apps, new software solutions, and AI and AR tools.
Further stimulating the exhibition’s offerings, Cosmoprof Asia 2023 presents specific initiatives that will emphasize new content and inspiration to stakeholders.
Special attention will, for example, be dedicated to excellence in beauty, thanks to the Cosmoprof & Cosmopack Asia Awards, a project curated by BEAUTYSTREAMS. The initiative will celebrate the best proposals presented by exhibitors, thus rewarding research and development in formulation, packaging, sustainable approach, storytelling and value proposition. Special visibility will be provided to finalists, and the winners will be announced during the exhibition.
CosmoTrends will provide an overview of current trends in Asia-Pacific, showcasing innovative new launches presented by exhibitors on the show floor. The accompanying report, prepared by BEAUTYSTREAMS, will become a strategic roadmap for operators, buyers, trend-scouters, press and influencers, helping them understand which products will influence consumer’s habits in the next months.
CosmoTalks, the educational program of the Cosmoprof network, will host global leaders of the cosmetics industry to share business cases, trends forecasts and market analysis. The most timely topics for the sector will be analysed, in order to spark inspiration and new ideas among attendees.
CosmoOnstage will host live show and demo sessions by exhibitors, putting innovative products, new techniques and fresh treatments in the beauty, make-up, nail and hair categories to rigorous test.
CosmoLab is a project powered by Cosmopack Asia. An interactive installation and multisensory experience developed by OPAL in collaboration with HKSCC & IFF, will be built to demonstrate how Clean Beauty can drive consumer behavior towards a better lifestyle.
