Focused on innovation and growing in popularity

The 2019 edition of Cosmetic 360 saw a 10% increase in attendance: over 5,000 visitors made their way to the Carrousel du Louvre to meet the 220 fair exhibitors.

The presence of professionals representing every link of the fragrance and cosmetic industry value chain makes Cosmetic 360 unlike any fair in its category. And 30 exhibiting start-ups will bask in the spotlight within a space created just for them.

With companies from over 70 countries on the exhibition floor, Cosmetic 360 stakes its claim as a major international event.

Its simple, practical purpose is to create synergies between global industry players for innovative collaborations.

What’s new in 2020

Country of the year: South Korea

It’s official! South Korea is the featured country of this year’s Cosmetic 360 trade fair. The Land of the Morning Calm has become the world’s fifth leading exporter, enjoying 25% annual growth.

This leap forward may be credited to its leadership on the beauty care market: South Korea now comes in second internationally for exports in this sector. In addition to these topics, firms from South Korea will be presenting their novel, high-performance products and discuss their development and deployment of AI technology.

A vibrant start-up “village”

Start-ups have pride of place at Cosmetic 360! Visitors to the Start-Up Village will find a dedicated exhibition space, the Start-Up Zone, and the Start-Up Solutions pop-up accelerator.

The Start-Up Zone, at the centre of the trade fair, accommodates companies operating for less than five years at special prices. The goal is to help young firms make their presence known among international industry representatives.

The Start-Up Solutions accelerator offers support to young project leaders. Start-up support service professionals from all corners will be on hand to advise and assist you with your project.

Gala evening event

Attend a delightful gathering in a sumptuous setting for further networking. Last year, Cosmetic 360 blew out five candles at the Lido in Paris. This year’s gala will take place on a private boat, where guests will enjoy an exquisite meal, an opportunity for quality discussion in a relaxed atmosphere, and a view of the most stunning monuments of Paris while gliding along the Seine.
