With the beauty service industry growing rapidly in India, more and more spa beauty brands are looking for distributors. This trend was apparent at the show. Unlike the 2007 edition, where hair care and beauty equipment companies were the majority, spa lines were the primary focus. Most companies showcasing their products, in fact, featured multiple spa lines—with one line targeted at spa therapists and estheticians and the other line for retail.
According to the organizers of the event, a majority of the companies present in 2008 committed their support for the next edition of the show (Nov. 29–Dec. 1, 2009). In addition, Germany has confirmed a country pavilion, which will be supported by the German government.
