Over the last quarter of a century the beauty and personal care industry has grown from strength to strength, and is now worth more than $454 billion in retail sales according to Euromonitor - more than double its $211 billion worth in 1999. During this time in-cosmetics has expanded in importance and in size, having grown ten fold since its inception in 1990. The show has always adapted to changes across sectors and today in-cosmetics reflects the entirety of the industry,” said the organizers.

After Brazil in 2014, the next edition will put a special emphasis on Turkey and Middle East markets. A dedicated pavilion will house exhibitors from the region, while presentations will shine a light on the vast business opportunities this rapidly evolving market holds, including updates on marketing, regulatory and scientific issues.

Free Marketing Trends Presentations also provide updates on key trends, while visitors can hear directly from exhibitors in the Innovation Seminars, which features over 80 hours of presentations on the industry’s latest ingredients, product launches and technologies.
