Organized by Informa Markets in India and BolognaFiere Group, Cosmoprof India will attract both local and international players, representing Europe, North America, the far East, and other neighboring countries. 

Brands, distributors, and buyers will get the opportunity to discover what is new in their reference markets, find out how local consumers changed their daily routine and purchasing habits after the pandemic,  and the main trends among younger customers.

At Cosmoprof India 2022 – Cosmopack India

Cosmopack India is a B2B show for the beauty supply chain. It will host international and domestic companies ranging from raw materials and labs to private label and contract manufacturing, machinery, and packaging companies. Cosmopack India will host the most innovative proposals and beauty-tech novelties.

The conjunction between Cosmoprof and Cosmopack is a special feature of the Cosmoprof international format worldwide, from the Bologna to Asia and North America exhibitions. Co-locating complimentary shows has always proved to be a successful strategy to congregate all beauty industry stakeholders under one roof. The co-location of Cosmoprof India and Cosmopack India will create profitable synergies, facilitating the connection between suppliers and brand companies, which can look for new innovative products and solutions to develop their business further. 

Special Initiatives

Many special initiatives are being organized for attendees at the Cosmoprof India Show, including high-quality workshops and a network of useful business relationships, thanks to the collaboration of top-of-the-line trends and design agencies, associations, and partners.  

The Buyer Program, a consolidated tool of the Cosmoprof platform, facilitates B2B meetings between exhibitors and buyers. Attendees and companies can identify professionals who perfectly suit their business needs. For the 2022 edition, the program will involve buyers and distributors from UAE, USA, Europe, and Asia. 

The Cosmoprof India Awards will celebrate quality and research in the Indian market. Being recognized as winners amid serious competition will offer the exhibitors more visibility with buyers and customers. The initiative will be organized in collaboration with international trend agency Beautystreams. A selected jury of international experts will gather on 6 October to felicitate the finalists.  

One of the most appreciated initiatives, Cosmotalks, this year will feature panels and seminars on the evolution of the local market and on the latest trends, with the participation of opinion leaders, trend scouters, and market researchers. Keeping in mind the requirements of professionals such as hair and beauty salon owners, hairstylists, and nail technicians attending the event, Cosmo Onstage will offer live demos of new products and treatments. 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
