There is still an opportunity to pre-register for in-cosmetics Asia 2014, which features state-of-the-art new product development, technical skills educational opportunities and insights on launching products. Registration closes on October 28 for the three-day exhibition, which will feature more than 400 of the industry’s largest personal care ingredient supplier companies showcasing ideas and cutting-edge technology.
The 2014 Educational Programme is also free, offering visitors insight into global trends and innovation. The new purpose-built Interactive Formulation Lab arms formulators, R&D, technicians and chemists with exclusive training on how to incorporate some of the newest ingredients into their new product development.
For those interested in more information about the world’s fourth largest cosmetics market, the Japan Country Focus offers a dedicated program of events, marketing trends presentations, a Japanese Product Trail and the Japan Pavilion to inspire and educate. The new Fragrance Zone will also present quality ingredients and provide solutions to the technical challenges involved in adding fragrance to beauty formulations.
Product Trails will focus on Moisturizers, Emulsifiers, Skin-Whitening (featuring insights from C&T editor Katie Anderson) and Anti-Ageing, making it simple to find relevant exhibitors in each area, while the Innovation Zone offers a way to source new ingredients, as everything on display is either exclusively launching at the show or within eight months of it.
The Marketing Trends and Innovation Seminars will cover the key topics that are likely to make a real impact over the coming year. For example with less than a year to go until the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Economic Community (AEC) is finalized, a full keynote session explores the opportunities and challenges of integration helping visitors to understand how the changes could affect the beauty business. C&T editor in chief Jeff Falk will present "The Impact Of The Global Beauty Market On R&D." The presentation will highlight key global consumer and industry trends and explore the implications on the future development of cosmetic products.
