As Asia continues to become a major driving force for global industry growth, in-cosmetics Asia has announced more than 60 first-time exhibitors have confirmed their debut for 2013—already matching 2012’s total new exhibitor numbers. The event takes place October 29–31, 2013, at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand.
South Korea makes up the largest contingent of in-cosmetics Asia newcomers with 20% of first-time exhibitors hailing from the country. Confirmed as the new Country Focus for 2013, South Korea is one of Asia’s most dynamic markets, and this year’s show is set to give visitors unrivalled access to the latest ingredients from the region, as well as trends and marketing advice.
China, France, Germany, Thailand and the U.S. are also well represented, reflecting the pan-Asian and global perspective provided by in-cosmetics Asia. New exhibitors include some of the industry’s major players, as well as smaller businesses, offering visitors the chance to source new ingredients from a wide range of companies.
“Asia is a melting pot for innovation, spurring new product development on a global level,” comments Sarah Gibson, event director, in-cosmetics Asia. “Each year in-cosmetics Asia attracts a raft of new exhibitors, offering visitors the chance to make new business contacts and source new ingredients.
