Running alongside the exhibition will be a comprehensive conference and seminar program, covering a spectrum of topical issues and trends for beauty industry professionals. The 6th ‘Cosmoprof Asia Spa Conference’ will look into the operational and marketing aspects of managing a spa business. The US industry analyst Kline & Company will discuss the market potential for beauty devices in the East and in the West. The ‘Focus on China’ seminar will provide hints on how to seize the opportunities of cosmetic channel sales in China, whilst the ‘Focus on Japan’ seminar will provide an overview of consumer trends in Japan through an analysis of social media.
Another highlight in this year’s show is the new area dedicated to nails and nail accessories covering every aspect of this fast-growing sector from nail art to practical solutions for nail technicians.
