CosmeticBusiness 2024 Retains its Strong Market Position

The 2024 edition of CosmeticBusiness featured busy aisles, a productive working atmosphere and all kinds of professional discussions. Numerous decision-makers from the cosmetics industry and its suppliers gathered at the MOC in Munich for two days to discuss trends, innovations and new projects. At this international supplier event for the cosmetics industry, 418 exhibitors from 23 countries presented their new products and solutions in the categories of ingredients, manufacturing and packaging. An extensive conference programme was held in the INNOVATION CORNER with top-class speakers such as Alicia Lindner from BÖRLIND and Birgit Huber from IKW and was very well received by visitors.

CosmeticBusiness 2024 impressed exhibitors and visitors across the board. "Despite the effects of the floods in Bavaria, we can look back on a very successful industry event that reflected the high relevance of CosmeticBusiness for exhibitors and visitors alike. Once again, visitor quality perfectly matched exhibitor expectations. This is a decisive factor in ensuring the trade show is a success for participating companies," emphasises Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. "Munich is a perfect location for CosmeticBusiness. Here, we can provide the ideal environment for decision-makers from the cosmetics industry to make new contacts, discuss specific projects and place orders. This is only possible here and ensures the event remains a truly international supplier show."
