Reunion in Munich: Cosmetics Industry Gets Together at CosmeticBusiness

Decision-makers and suppliers from the cosmetics industry will finally be able to meet in person again at CosmeticBusiness in Munich on 20 and 21 October 2021. The industry platform is a trend barometer and source of inspiration, offering a comprehensive overview of new developments in the areas of ingredients, production and packaging. Sustainability is a central theme of both the exhibition and the conference programme.

"CosmeticBusiness is back at last! We are very much looking forward to seeing you in person again in Munich. More than 270 exhibitors and represented companies – including 30 new exhibitors – will be presenting their innovations and products across three halls at the MOC in Munich. 33 per cent of exhibitors come from abroad, representing 19 different countries", explains Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. "The reception from our exhibitors is an important signal for everyone involved," he emphasises. "It confirms the importance of CosmeticBusiness as the leading meeting place for the cosmetics industry and its suppliers in the German-speaking world. This is a place where people come together to gather ideas for new products and to exchange information with suppliers."

New: Innovation Corner Showcases Innovations and Trends

At this year's CosmeticBusiness the new Innovation Corner in Hall 1 is the place to go for trends and innovations. Here, exhibitors will be unveiling their new products and innovations in the Spotlight special show. Visitors can also take a look into the future with CB Impulse 2022 Beyond. Four colour cards visualise colour worlds and materials to provide recommendations and guidance on colour harmonies for future product design in the coming years 2022 and 2023. Trend analyst and colour expert Niels Holger Wien will be introducing these trend impulses in his lecture "Prospects & Impulse 2022 Beyond" and will be available for personal exchanges three times a day as part of "Meet the Expert" in the Innovation Corner.
