China Beauty Expo (CBE), Asia’s leading beauty trade, recently concluded its 20th edition on a high note, reinforcing its status as the definitive exhibition for the market.

Held in Shanghai New International Expo Center from 19 to 21 May 2015, CBE registered a total of 312,000 visits from trade professionals from across the region, which represented a 14% increase compared to 2014. This year, a large proportion of visitors were senior decision-makers, including executives from companies such as SASA, Sephora, Watsons and a number of leading distributor Claudia BONFIGLIOLI, International Director, Informa Beauty and Informa Baiwen (CBE), said, “The global beauty market has been projected to reach new heights, with Asia continuing to lead the global market in the years ahead. The show is well poised to support the industry’s growth, and we look forward to bringing more of the industry together to help them realize the full potential that the market possesses.”

Exhibitors at this year’s event were pleased with their decision to participate, citing the show’s audience, the focus on doing business, and its level of professionalism as key benefits. In addition, returning exhibitors found the show had grown in stature, not just in terms of attendance but also with the addition of new visitor attractions, such as the WeChat Conference and CBE-Beyond Beauty Trends Conference.

“The highly-charged atmosphere, as well as top quality discussions, are what characterized China Beauty Expo 2015. We are optimistic that several business partnerships will develop from the contacts established during the exhibition.

Creating Opportunities and Building Connections

CBE aims to bridge the gap between suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors, as well as facilitate business and learning opportunities that ultimately inspire new product development.

Popular with attendees and providing further opportunities for business ideas included the Asian Brand

Building Lab and the Beauty Ingredients & Formulation Shanghai Conference.  These visitor attractions help visitors maximize their time at the show by drawing their attention to the upcoming beauty trends, as well as complimentary one-on-one vision consultations.

Having received critical acclaims from participants all around, the next edition of CBE looks set to be a bigger and stronger business platform as the organizers, Informa and Shanghai Baiwen, are committed to serve the global beauty industry with this event in the years ahead.
