A key element of this year’s edition will be the three-day educational content programme, and show organisers have revealed an overview of this programme and what not to miss.
in-cosmetics Global takes place from 2-4 April, and features “a wealth of presentations, seminars and workshops to give visitors an in-depth view of the trends to set the agenda in the cosmetics and personal care industry over the next 12 months”, organisers confirm.
Pre-Show Regulatory Conference: for regulatory buffs
The event kicks off with the second instalment of the Pre-Show Regulatory Conference on 1 April, for which delegates can book their places now to make the most of early-bird rates before 28 February.
The topic up for the conference is ‘Regulations: opportunities or obstacles?’ and is open to both cosmetic manufacturers and suppliers of cosmetic ingredients. The conference will provide an analysis of the differing frameworks that constitute the world’s biggest personal care markets, making it unmissable for attendees from the European Union, Brazil, Asia-Pacific, China and the USA.
Free content throughout
Elsewhere, the educational programme’s free content spans the three days of the show with the Marketing Trends Theatre and Technical Seminars Theatre both packed with sessions.
The Marketing Trends Theatre will host sessions addressing issues from how sensitivity and allergies are changing the beauty category to the evolution of private label in beauty and personal care.
For the more technically-focused, seminars on offer include Substantiating anti-pollution, blue light and microbiota cosmetic claims and how to select from multiple vegetable oil options for cosmetic formulations.
Global Beauty Day: a new initiative
in-cosmetics Global 2019 will also be remembered for the launch of the inaugural Global Beauty Day on 3 April – set to be an annual celebration highlighting the need for inclusivity to embrace the world’s diversity.
Roziani Zulkifli, Exhibition Manager of in-cosmetics Global, commented: “in-cosmetics has long led the charge on educational content for the cosmetics and personal care industry and this has become our portfolio’s raison d'être.
“Visitors trust us to provide a truly immersive, unmissable and – above all – useful experience from which they can report on their learnings when back in their businesses. Nothing stands still in this industry and our programme this year reflects that with sessions dedicated to the rise of AI, AR, personalisation and many more hot topics.
“As a leading show in the global beauty industry, we wanted to celebrate diversity and 2019 will provide a platform for this. For the first time, the second day of the show will become a calendar event to encourage cosmetic and personal care professionals to celebrate diversity and inclusion.”
The show takes place at the Porte de Versailles, showcasing the world’s leading personal care ingredients amid unmissable networking opportunities.
A host of interactive areas will be back, including the popular Formulation Lab, Sensory Bar, Make-Up Bar and the new Indie Trail.
The Trail will help Indie brands overcome the challenge of sourcing suppliers that provide smaller quantities of ingredients with a guide listing potential supplier partnerships.
