Launch of 2015 in-cosmetics Korea Announced

Posted: April 24, 2014

in-cosmetics Korea will be held June 15–16, 2015, at the COEX Exhibition Centre in Seoul, and, according to event organizers, will be the country’s only exhibition and educational event of its kind for the personal care ingredients industry.

Established with support from the Korea Cosmetic Association (KCA), the two-day event will enable companies to access Korea’s thriving $8.9 million* cosmetics market in a highly targeted environment. Visitors from all corners of the Korean beauty industry (including formulators, lab and R&D professionals and purchasing managers) are expected to attend to source innovative new products and develop strategic partnerships with suppliers.

“Korea is Asia’s third largest cosmetics market* and has been growing steadily since 2009," said Lucy Gillam, senior exhibition director, Reed Exhibitions. "As home to more than 1,500 cosmetic manufacturers and the world’s highest spenders per capita in the field of skin care and male grooming products, it offers a huge opportunity for ingredient suppliers to build their business in this lucrative and sophisticated market.

“Currently, there is no exhibition in South Korea dedicated solely to the personal care ingredients industry, and from our experience with in-cosmetics Asia, we know companies are ready (and eager)  or an event which caters specifically to this region. We are, therefore, delighted to be working with the Korea Cosmetics Association to bring in-cosmetics to this vibrant country, bridging a very important gap in the sector.”
