CosmeticBusiness 2017 on the starting blocks
CosmeticBusiness 2017 will be opening its doors from 21 to 22 June: the thirteenth edition of this trade fair will start with more exhibition stands, numerous new exhibitors, an increased level of internationality, and new and innovative products. 411 exhibitors and represented companies from 18 countries will be showing their ideas and solutions for the efficient development of cosmetic products – for which Halls 2, 3 and 4 of the MOC Munich are fully booked.
“Visitors can look forward to an extensive exhibition, which offers solutions for future product ideas and concepts in the cosmetics industry. CosmeticBusiness thus once again demonstrates, that it is, effectively, the sector’s major meeting place and source of inspiration for the cosmetics industry and its suppliers in the German-speaking regions,” says Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe.
New products and innovations to be the main features of the fair
This year once again it will do full justice to its status as the trade fair with the largest range of contract manufacturers and private-label producers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland: around one third of the exhibitors will be coming from this sector. They will be providing incentives for new product concepts – trade visitors will be able to find out, for instance, about a new serum with anti-ageing effect, an active ingredient for combatting wrinkles of an entirely new kind, or new formulas with natural decorative particles.
In the packaging sector, which will comprise about half of the exhibitors and represented companies, the range will run from master batches for plastics, to primary packagings of all kinds for both care and colour cosmetics, to perfume or cleansing products. Among the features on display will be new packagings, special finishing techniques, and innovative designs.
Plenty of new visitors in all product areas
In all, around 50 new exhibitors have secured their stands. In the packaging sector these include paper producers Gmund and Scheufelen from Germany, and packaging suppliers Arexim and Polipack from Poland, Stakplast from Israel, or Takemoto from the Netherlands. Packaging-machinery and filling-machinery suppliers, such as the Swiss firm Synopac, will likewise be celebrating their first appearance at the show.
But in the other product areas, too, visitors will be able to find new exhibitors. Polygon Chemie from Switzerland, Buckton Scott from Germany, and Biosynthis from France will be there for the first time in the raw-materials section. New exhibitors in the manufacturing and private-label sector will be, for example, Volcke Aerosol Connection/Solchim from Italy and MaqPro from France.
High level of internationality, highly varied conference programme
Once again this year, the fair can boast a high level of internationality. 35 percent of exhibitors will come from abroad – a rise of three percent on the last time the trade fair was held. France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Switzerland provide the most international exhibitors. Firms from Greece and Lithuania will also be present for the first time.
The conference programme will address subjects such as the progress of digitalisation, beauty, colour and material trends, and the impact of current political developments on the industry. Plus, the special show entitled SPOTLIGHT in Hall 4 will be featuring exhibition highlights – the conference programme will also shed light on the new developments under display. Exhibitors taking part will be GRAFE, Lifocolor, Sederma, Seppic, Singulus Technologies and Technature. A further component of the conference programme will be the new IKW information event. This will engage with issues surrounding current challenges to the European cosmetics industry.
