The Asia-Pacific B2B event, which took place from November 12 to 15 in Hong Kong, announced the winners of Cosmopack and Cosmoprof Asia Awards during an Awards Ceremony at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre attended by some 300 guests on November 13, 2019.
Exhibitors, CEOs and management of beauty companies, executives from trade associations, buyers, media and influencers were invited to celebrate the 10 winning companies of the 2019 Awards, which were chosen from among 614 entries - an increase of 16% compared with the last edition. The winners were selected for their innovation, excellence and commitment to the industry. All winners were awarded a prestigious trophy designed by the international design agency centdegrés.
The Awards, organised in partnership with the global beauty industry reference Beautystreams, recognise the most outstanding beauty products in each exhibition venue, providing reliability and prestige to all participating companies. Cosmopack Asia Awards celebrate innovation, creativity and design for the supply chain; Cosmoprof Asia Awards recognise the best strategies to build brand awareness and marketability.
“Edition after edition, our Cosmoprof and Cosmopack Awards are gaining recognition from the whole cosmetic industry,” says Enrico Zannini, General Manager of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof. “We hold four editions each year across global Cosmoprof exhibitions and they are considered the industry benchmarks when it comes to innovation, research and creativity across all beauty sectors.”
Informa Markets Senior Vice President-Asia & Director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd David Bondi says, “I am very impressed by the overall standard and innovation of the submissions this year. Every win was thoroughly well-deserved, and it was a real pleasure to honour and celebrate all of the winners’ achievements through the evening.”
Special thanks were given to the juries, consisting of 22 key figures for the industry - experts, opinion leaders, media and influencers - and to 10 media partners, both Asian and international, who supported the initiatives. Attendees played a key role in selecting the best proposals, too, making a vote for the winner of the Visitors’ Choice category.
