Come and join us to present your products and services in these areas!
  • Meet the Brands and Win New Customers!
    Brand manufacturers and retail brands alike will be on the lookout for experts in formulation and recipe development, contract manufacturing and full-service production as well as private label solutions for cosmetics of all kinds, including cleansing, care and decorative products. Impress well-known brands with your product concept!
  • Inspire Decision-Makers in Marketing!
    CosmeticBusiness offers the most comprehensive range of packaging materials exclusively for the cosmetics industry along with products and services for finishing and decoration, labelling and sales promotion. Come and promote your packaging solutions for cosmetics and their presentation right at the point of sale!
  • Decorative Cosmetics in Focus!
    Be prepared for an explosion of colour – decorative cosmetics often have special requirements so we will be focusing on these along the COLOUR ROUTE. You can raise your profile for the relevant visitors via the online exhibitor directory or in the on-site print publications.

Exhibitor statements

  • Volker Rudolph, Sales Manager, A. Landerer GmbH & Co. KG
    "CosmeticBusiness is the perfect trade fair for our customers as everyone involved across the entire cosmetics supplying industry is here in one place. That really shows in the quality of the fair. We have been exhibiting for six years and have never been disappointed. The event gets better every year and we could once again really feel the high level of quality at CosmeticBusiness this year."
  • Bernd Stauch, Senior Director Sales Cosmetics, Gerresheimer
    "Being at CosmeticBusiness every year is really important to us. Here we can talk to the entire cosmetics supplying industry. We've noticed that the fair has been becoming increasingly international every year. When we first came most exhibitors were from German-speaking countries, but now more and more exhibitors from different countries are joining the event. Even so, CosmeticBusiness remains nice and compact. Trade visitors can easily get an overview of the whole industry in just one day without it being stressful. We benefit from that in our discussions with them."
  • Stefano Focolari, CEO & Managing Director, mktg industry
    "CosmeticBusiness was exactly the right place to present our packaging solutions. The German market has a particularly high awareness of sustainability issues and this was really noticeable at CosmeticBusiness 2019. We were asked again and again about the products we were presenting at the Spotlight show, we established lots of interesting new contacts and were able to meet up with three of our largest German customers. After such a successful debut we will definitely be back next year".
  • Thomas Werner, Vetrieb, PKB
    "CosmeticBusiness offers us the ideal opportunity to talk to customers from the cosmetics supplying industry each year. At other industry trade fairs, we are often just one of many exhibitors, but here we can meet up with exactly the customers we build our machines for. The quality of the contacts improves every year and we're certainly not planning to miss out on that in 2020".
  • Hagen Döring, Area Sales Manager, Provital Group
    "As an international meeting place for the industry, CosmeticBusiness is always a wonderful platform for exchanging ideas. Here we can share our innovations and trends with product managers and marketing experts while at the same time maintaining contact with our regular customers. Even though we have plenty of experience exhibiting here, we were still pretty nervous before this year's event. We had our stand constructed for us for the first time; we doubled it in size, took part in the spotlight show and held a lecture as part of the conference programme. It was really worth all the extra effort".
  • Lucia Ehemann, Key Account Manager, Straub GmbH
    "We are exhibiting at CosmeticBusiness for the first time. I was so inspired as a visitor to this industry get-together last year that I felt I had to convince our managing director to exhibit here in 2019 – and it was worth it. The atmosphere is amazing, everything is so close together and the organisation works well. We were a bit surprised by the large number of packaging companies and international export customers, so we asked our export manager to come and join us at short notice. Next year we will certainly make sure we have the right people there."
