The first edition of Cosmoprof India took place on 10th - 11th September 2018 at the Sahara Star Hotel in Mumbai. Conceived as a preview before a larger scale launch next year, the two-day event hosted 107 exhibiting companies - both local and international - from 15 countries, and was visited by 3.898 professionals from the beauty industry, including importers, exporters, distributors, salon & spa owners, retailers, packaging & finished goods manufacturers, contract manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers.
“We are finally entering an era in which the Indian beauty industry is defining its claim in the world market and thriving. A slew of established and upcoming companies are making themselves known as major contenders in the beauty space owing to increase in purchasing power of the Indian economy and the rising interest in beauty-led activities and functions amongst consumers. Cosmoprof India has offered an extremely wide platform to an even broader B2B consumer base. These have been two extremely engaging and informative days which I’m sure has opened up numerous avenues for this sector. Although only a preview, it was extremely comprehensive and catered to different segments of the multi-faceted beauty industry in India with the conference and live demos being much appreciated by the attendees,” said Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director of UBM India, co-organiser of the event with BolognaFiere Cosmoprof.
The next edition is scheduled from 12 to 14 June 2019 at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC)
