As Asia’s share of the global cosmetics and toiletries market continues to grow, in-cosmetics Asia has announced that a host of the industry’s key players will be in attendance at the 2012 show. Reed Exhibitions—the organizers of in-cosmetics Asia—will welcome more than 40 first-time exhibitors, many of whom will take their place in the show’s New Exhibitor Zone.
Unveiled for the first time at last year’s show, the dedicated New Exhibitor Zone will feature players from within the ingredient supply market who are set to offer a wide range of new product and supplier options to show attendees. The area also provides the ideal platform for new exhibitors to gain firsthand market knowledge through meeting potential customers face-to-face. The New Exhibitor Zone will provide an exclusive home to many new companies attending the show, with businesses hailing from Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Spain, the US, Thailand and many other locations. And this year’s attendance reflects the continued strength of the Asian beauty ingredients market.
This dedicated area enables visitors to readily identify new companies, making it easier for exhibitors to network and build invaluable links with new clients, as well as to explore future relationships.
A spokesperson for Laboratorios Argenol, one of the new companies set to exhibit at this in-cosmetics Asia, said, “We’re looking forward to appearing at in-cosmetics Asia for the first time and taking our place next to many new exhibitors. The show will provide us with the ideal opportunity to meet with some of the leading distributors and manufacturers within the cosmetics market, which will ultimately enable us to drive our business forwards.”
