  • More than 250 members of the media and journalists covered the event.

"Cosmoprof Asia is the meeting point with the major international actors of the industry. An important rendezvous for us on a fast growing platform," said spokesperson of Albea (France).

"This is the most important beauty event in Asia, the show in which international brands should participate. This is the place for finding high quality business opportunities as well as enhancing brand awareness. Congratulations to the Cosmoprof team," commented Tommaso Corradini, General Manager, Bioline S.r.l. (Italy).

"For 15 years we have been the leader in the Asian market but we are maintaining high investments in order to keep the leadership in this market. Being at Cosmoprof Asia is just one of these important strategic investments," said Nelson Philippe, Owner, LPG Systems (France).
