The Industry's Developers Would Love to Meet You!

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 2021

  • Harald Ballerstaedt, Managing Director, Ballerstaedt und CO. OHG
    "The trade show went above and beyond our expectations. We were finally able to meet many of our existing customers in person again, as well make new contacts. You could really feel the spirit of optimism in the talks. I would like to thank the CosmeticBusiness team for persevering and going ahead with the trade show this year. It was the right decision."
  • Thomas Lahlah, Team Leader B2B Sales, BELANO medical AG
    "An ideal stand location and precisely the right target group. We are very satisfied and will gladly come again. At times we were so busy that we could hardly keep up."
  • Marco Costantino, Managing Director, bomo trendline innovative Cosmetic GmbH
    "The fact that CosmeticBusiness was able to take place again has meant we can plan more reliably. This event is our most important supplier trade show. Here we can quickly and effectively reach all our relevant target groups. It was our first trade show appearance in months and since we presented several new products, we were able to make various promising new contacts with good potential for future cooperation."
  • Dr Thomas Gibtner, Managing Director, Neo Cos Service GmbH
    "Now that it's all kicking off again – CosmeticBusiness was a great place to start. The exchange of information on ingredients is especially important for us and our customers at the trade show because we can see and feel samples and formulations. And negotiating prices in person is also different from digital discussions. In addition to our existing contacts, we were also able to talk to numerous start-ups. Their new ideas and ways of doing things give us a real impetus."
  • Michael Pfeiffer, Chief Executive Officer, Pfeiffer Consulting GmbH
    "The number of visitors at this year's CosmeticBusiness was a real surprise to us. From the moment the gates opened in the morning until the evening, there was always lots going on at our stand. The visitors were really 'hungry' for exchange and new information. We have been working intensively with start-ups for a long time now. After the long break from the trade show, it was exciting to see some of them again – many companies that started small years ago have now developed into significant players in the market."
  • Helmut Weidle, Head of Marketing and Sales, schäfer-etiketten GmbH & Co. KG
    "We are now regular exhibitors at CosmeticBusiness, as it is the most important trade show for us in the cosmetics sector. After the uncertainties of the last year and a half, we were hesitant about exhibiting this year. However, following the strong attendance at our stand, we are now very glad that we decided to exhibit at the trade show. There were many interesting enquiries from start-ups in particular, but also from our existing customers, especially on the subject of sustainability and our award-winning label material rPE, which is made from 100 per cent recycled material. We'll have our work cut out for us after the trade show."
