The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit 2018 returns to Barcelona for its 5th Edition!

The 2018 Summit will put regulatory professionals, brand owners and marketeers ahead of the curve, by providing enriching and informative sessions to ensure that your products continue to remain cutting-edge – and compliant.

As the global beauty industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, manufacturers and brands are increasingly looking for new ways to stand out from the crowd.

But being a true innovator can present challenges for regulatory professionals, who are often tasked with launching a product quickly while meeting marketing demands.

The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit 2018 will cover everything you need to know from changes in global legislation to aligning your regulatory processes for new and emerging trends.

An exciting new venue

Following on from the successful 2017 edition, this year’s summit will once again be held in Barcelona, the European hub for cosmetics manufacturing.

The summit will take place at the Melia Sky Hotel on 9-10 October. The venue is located in the vibrant district of Poble Nou at the heart of the Avinguda Diagonal, a central location within easy reach of every corner of the city, giving you the opportunity to take in Barcelona’s beautiful landmarks and architecture whilst you’re there.

Our brand new venue in the heart of the city will be the meeting point for regulators, brand owners and marketeers looking to cut through the complexity of cosmetic regulation.

"As we all know, when it comes to regulation, confidence is key. The scope and detail of global regulations can seem daunting – it’s easy to bury your head in the sand. But that isn’t safe for your business or those you serve.

“That’s where the Regulatory Summit comes in. In compact time-slots, expert speakers will present easy to follow presentations with a focus on practical advice. Every talk ends with questions from the audience, allowing you to find solutions to individual issues."

The 2017 summit was attended by over 100 industry professionals from 15 countries
