With trends from Asia such as BB, CC and DD creams taking the world by storm, this region has become a focal point for major international brands. It's against this backdrop that in-cosmetics Asia 2013 is shaping up to be the most exciting event in its history. Exhibitor numbers are already up 35 per cent compared to last year with suppliers from South Korea up as much as 68 per cent and those from China 43 per cent.
New: South Korea Country Focus
This year sees the introduction of a country focus, dedicated to South Korea, which arguably has the most innovative personal care market in the region with sales of cosmetics and toiletries growing by 9.1 per cent in 2012. Comprising a new South Korea Country Pavilion and Feature, Marketing Trends Presentations delving into the country's innovations and a South Korean Product Trail showcasing selected ingredients, the South Korea Country Focus will offer a 360° look at one of the world's most vibrant markets in cosmetics right now.
Cutting-Edge Educational Programme
