Enthusiastic exhibitors and visitors

This is what exhibitors at CosmeticBusiness said...

....from the INGREDIENTS sector

Kristin Köhler, Division Manager Cosmetics, Berg + Schmidt GmbH & Co. KG: "One of our goals this year was to achieve better visibility for Berg+Schmidt Care ingredients in the German market. We made great progress with this. We met the right people at CosmeticBusiness and were able to have some very high-quality conversations. CosmeticBusiness is a well-targeted trade show and meets our current needs as an exhibitor. It is highly probable that we will be back next year".

Clara Capparelli, Customer Engagement Coordinator, Cellugy ApS: „We are exhibiting at CosmeticBusiness because we are a small company. It is important for us to start working with partners and getting feedback on our ingredients. Germany is an important market in the European Union and it is very important for us to start discussing with distributors and direct customers the possibilities of incorporating our ingredients.”

Dr Oliver Reimelt, Country Sales Manager at Croda GmbH: "At CosmeticBusiness, we were able to meet our regular customers as well as acquire new ones. The mix at CosmeticBusiness is ideal because it includes everything from procurement and research to logistics and packaging. We can meet customers we otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to speak with."

Thorsten Fenchel, Managing Director at NCD Ingredients GmbH: "Once again, CosmeticBusiness was a successful event for us to present new and innovative ingredients to our customers. For our tenth anniversary, we had an amazing opportunity to present our 'Fuehlbar' for testing ingredients in product formulations."

Julie Cortal, Head of Business Development, NoPalm Ingredients: “We are a start-up and in the early stage of our journey to deliver very innovative ingredients to the consumer care industry. For us, CosmeticBusiness is an occasion to meet potential new industry and market partners that can collaborate with us to demonstrate the performance of our ingredients. We haven’t explored the German market yet. Here is really the expertise, the partners who can really help us.”

Michael Leimetz, Authorised Signatory at VMP Chemiekontor GmbH: "For us, CosmeticBusiness is the most important trade show in German-speaking Europe. We can meet the most significant players in the cosmetics industry in a relatively compact space. It's the best place there is for chatting to both customers and suppliers as well as for networking."

....from the MANUFACTURING sector

Ute Wollenweber, Owner, care-and-science: "I really love the customer contact and the constructive scientific conversations. Once again this year, I had so many interesting and inspirational meetings at CosmeticBusiness."

Klaus Grabowsky, CEO of Cosmetic Service GmbH: "We exhibited at CosmeticBusiness for the first time and have made a huge number of contacts here. We certainly achieved our quantitive goals – we couldn't possibly have had more conversations. It's also important for us to meet customers we have previously only seen digitally or were finding it difficult to arrange meetings with."

Markus Eichhorn, Area Sales Manager D-A-CH, EKATO SYSTEMS GmbH: “We exhibit at CosmeticBusiness because our target group is here. We have been to some larger trade shows, but they were not as effective as CosmeticBusiness. The quality of the contacts was very good and we had some excellent conversations. It's an extremely focused and pleasant trade show. We would love to come back next year."

Ivo Petschke, Managing Director at L. A. Schmitt GmbH: „For me, CosmeticBusiness is the leading trade show in Europe for the cosmetics industry. I can't think of anywhere else with such a compact gathering of all the significant players in the industry, from contract manufacturers to packaging suppliers and ingredients producers.

Dr Thomas Gibtner, Managing Director at Neo Cos Service GmbH: "CosmeticBusiness is the perfect trade show for us. We love coming back every year. It's wonderfully well organised."

....from the PACKAGING sector

Michael Kammann, Managing Director at DekorTech GmbH: "CosmeticBusiness is the perfect place to meet numerous customers and suppliers and establish contact with new clients. This is the only place in Germany where we can have such uncomplicated and high-quality conversations with professionals in the industry."

Simone Stöckigt, Managing Director at fs-Etiketten GmbH: "We have been exhibiting at CosmeticBusiness since 2011 and very much appreciate the opportunity to make new contacts and strengthen business relationships in a relaxed atmosphere. The trade show is just the right size and allows all visitors enough time to look around."

Cavit Onur, Brand Owner Manager at Holmen Iggesund: "We exhibit at CosmeticBusiness because here we can make new contacts, extend our field of business and maintain our existing partnerships. Our lecture at the conference was very well received, feedback was good and we had good conversations afterwards. All in all, a very positive experience. Considering the size of the event, we were pleasantly surprised by the high level of output it generated."

Johannes Schick, CEO of the Linhardt Group: "Seeing as we are a German manufacturer of tubes and containers made from plastic and aluminium and are located in the Bavarian Forest, CosmeticBusiness is certainly the most significant trade show for us. It's much better this year than last year, which still had a pandemic aftertaste. This year, everyone's enthusiasm for the trade show is back. All the products and services are concentrated in three halls, and everyone who really has something to exhibit is here. With regard to participation and visitor frequency, it was a very successful trade show. I am very satisfied with it."

Jörg Holzmann, Business Development Manager at Rixius: "Compared to other trade shows, it is easier to position our packaging products and increase awareness of our company at CosmeticBusiness. Here, the visitors are exactly what we are looking for".

....from the SERVICE sector

Matthias Amtmann, Owner of Amtmann GmbH & Co Papierverarbeitung KG: "We didn't exhibit here in the last few years and now we are glad to be back."

Dennis Kubik, CEO at coobic GmbH: "CosmeticBusiness is a fixed item in our advertising budget and our main communication platform within the cosmetics industry. We can't live without it."

Winfried Rämisch, Sales Manager at WESSLING GmbH: "For us, CosmeticBusiness is the leading trade show in the German-speaking market. We are thrilled with all the new contacts we made here. We also had great conversations with our existing customers as well as some of the service providers we work together with who are also exhibiting here."

This is what the visitors to CosmeticBusiness said:

Manuela Döring-Janitz, Head of Purchasing at MAEURER & WIRTZ GmbH & Co. KG: „I thought CosmeticBusiness was a particularly good show this year. It has really come on. I've been working in this industry for 20 years and can remember the trade show when it first began. For my colleague and myself, the trade show was ideal for having conversations with suppliers. It wasn't necessary to make appointments and we had all the suppliers there in one place. It's compact, you meet everyone – it's like a family reunion. Alongside talking to our suppliers, we come here with the major goal of finding new innovations. We even found what we were looking for with a company we weren't expecting. That was a lovely surprise.

Sebastian Wölke, Managing Director at no planet b: "Once again, it was truly an industry get-together and I met many former colleagues from the FMCG sector. When it comes to product-related suppliers (packaging, formulating, filling), CosmeticBusiness is by far the most significant event in German-speaking Europe. In my experience, other industry players feel the same way."

Roland Kienitz, Strategic Buyer CMO at Weleda AG: "As a strategic buyer for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, I am particularly looking for contract manufacturers. I can find them at CosmeticBusiness. That's why I come to the trade show regularly and have been coming here for many years. CosmeticBusiness is the only trade show I use in the cosmetics sector. It's perfect for maintaining personal contact with my suppliers and I can take the time to talk about innovations and finalise projects. It's also very interesting thanks to the wide range of products and services on show. For me, inspiration on ingredients and packaging is just as relevant. I am very satisfied with my visit to the show and will definitely be back next year. I would also be interested in seeing more manufacturers from Eastern Europe here in future."
