Cosmoprof Asia: Beauty, Trends and Business Oriented

Cosmoprof Asia, the premier beauty event in the Asia Pacific region, is getting ready for its 13th edition, which will be held from 12 to 14 November, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. This trendsetting event Cosmoprof Asia takes place in Hong Kong, Asia''s international business hub and, each year, confirms its global role as the world''s second most important beauty event. With its 48,000 sqm of exhibition space, the fair is surpassed only by the giant Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.

This event offers a winning formula: exhibitors from almost 40 countries and regions who display all the hottest in beauty, plus 17 national and group pavilions that showcase the distinctive products of their countries, will match with nearly 40,000 qualified visitors from about 100 countries and a wide range of international buyers. In brief, this is a unique opportunity to do business in one of the world's most strategic and fastest growing industries.

Key to the internationalisation of the show is the International Buyer Programme, which in 2008 focused on attracting buyers from India, Japan and Australia. Shinji Nagashima, Managing Director of The Cosmetic Importers Association of Japan (CIAJ), commented on the programme: "CIAJ wishes to express its gratitude for the chance to participate in the first International Buyer Programme and to make a presentation about the Japanese market. We found it an innovative and significant opportunity for both exhibitors and attendees to promote new business opportunities."

He added: "In the days when globalisation in the cosmetics business is advancing fast, imports and exports of cosmetics are increasing continuously. We are convinced that the Buyer Programme will be appreciated as a unique and valuable opportunity for the further expansion of the international beauty business."
