The Asian market being one of the world leaders in matters of cosmetics is no surprise. As such, the comparing figures with Cosmoprof Bologna (still considered the “Big brother” of Cosmoprof Asia) shows that both events can be placed on the same level.
- 2,500 Exhibtiors at Cosmoprof Bologna in 2014 while Cosmoprof Hong Kong expects 2,300 exhibitors this year.
- Asian Exhibitors in Cosmoprof Bologna represented 38% while Non-Asian exhibitors at Cosmoprof Asia stands on 37%.
The conclusion to be drawn out of these numbers is that all exhibitors aspire to increase their sales in the international markets. Therefore they join international exhibitions with the main purpose of collecting market information, searching for new products or suppliers and mainly, seeking new opportunities towards new markets.
One fine example of such new market opportunities resides within the European Market – the largest market in the world (500 Million citizens), with a sophisticated distribution system and more luxury purchases per person than anywhere else in the world – will be the focus of Obelis’ presence at Cosmoprof Asia.
