Cosmoprof Shanghai to expand in 2008 – 05/07/07

CHINA. Cosmoprof Shanghai, which made its debut in January 2007, will return in 2008 with an extra hall, thereby increasing the exhibition space by over +30%. The event will run from 15-17 January.

The inaugural Cosmoprof Shanghai started with two halls in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, featuring key international players among manufacturers of finished products and suppliers to the cosmetics industry.

The third hall will be added to next year’s event, to accommodate the increasing demand for space from national groups and individual brands eager to enlarge their participation at the show, or to take part in the event for the first time.

The support of the country pavilions continues to drive the show growth. Australia, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Korea, Spain and the US have already committed to a larger presence at Cosmoprof Shanghai 2008.

The show is described by organiser SoGeCos as the rendezvous for the top Chinese decision-makers in the beauty industry. This year’s event attracted 13,628 selected high-profile visitors, 82% of which came from China.

Thanks to its strong partnership with major Chinese associations, Cosmoprof Shanghai 2008 will once again provide exhibitors with the opportunity to meet buyers, importers and distributors, as well as relevant updates on the Chinese beauty market.

Among these is the “Match Making Programme”. This incorporates a series of one-to-one meetings on the show floor of Cosmoprof Shanghai 2008, and will allow international companies from all over the world to explore business opportunities with a targeted group of delegates from major provinces and cities of China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and Zhejiang.

Other opportunities to explore the expanding potential of the Chinese market will be offered by the seminar “Importing Cosmetics Products in China”, held in co-operation with Chinese legislation experts, as well as conferences on the retailing system in China, organised with the support of the China Commerce Association for General Merchandise.
