The show, held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 14 to 16 November, is a confirmation of the strength and identity of the Cosmoprof brand and its ability to attract the who's who of the global beauty industry.

The event, celebrating its 17th year, posted impressive numbers:

  • 74,000 sqm of exhibition area (+9% over last year )
  • 1,964 exhibitors (an increase of 10% compared to 2011) from 44 countries and regions
  • 531 first-time exhibitors

  • 55,386 visitors (a growth of 14% over 2011) over the three show days with significant presence of buyers from countries such as Australia, China, Japan,  Korea, Russia and US.
  • More than 250 members of the media and journalists covered the event.

Exhibitors reported excellent results and high satisfaction. Their expectation of meeting new prospective customers was widely met thanks to the participation of buyers of very high standing from across the world including procurers representing Chanel, Coty, Estee Lauder, Johnson & Johnson, LVMH, P&G, Unilever as well as Li & Fung, Mannings, SaSa, Sephora and Watsons.

"Amika is the leader in hair care and hair appliances and Cosmoprof Asia is vital to help us expand our professional distribution in Asia. We are looking to expand our business as a heavy player in Asia's professional beauty market and have received a lot of interest in our brand and met several good distributors at the show," said Heather Coughlin, National Education Manager, Amika (USA).

"Cosmoprof Asia is the meeting point with the major international actors of the industry. An important rendezvous for us on a fast growing platform," said spokesperson of Albea (France).

"This is the most important beauty event in Asia, the show in which international brands should participate. This is the place for finding high quality business opportunities as well as enhancing brand awareness. Congratulations to the Cosmoprof team," commented Tommaso Corradini, General Manager, Bioline S.r.l. (Italy).

"For 15 years we have been the leader in the Asian market but we are maintaining high investments in order to keep the leadership in this market. Being at Cosmoprof Asia is just one of these important strategic investments," said Nelson Philippe, Owner, LPG Systems (France).

For the 6th consecutive year, Cosmoprof Asia organised the International Buyer Programme to facilitate direct contact between exhibitors and international buyers. Prominent buyers from Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand and Russia were invited to meet one-on-one with exhibitors of their choice. During the 3-day event, more than 140 one-on-one business meetings took place at the International Buyers Lounge with unanimous endorsement from all participants for the benefits of this formula.
