UBM expands Asian events footprint with India personal care show
UBM India is to launch its first event in the Indian subcontinent, having scheduled the Personal Care India Expo 2015, which is being billed as an international trade show.

To be held at the Pragati Maidan expo centre in New Delhi, the three day event will open its doors to both Indian and international visitors between August 19 – 21.

According to the organiser, the event will provide a platform for cosmetic and personal care industry suppliers from across the board, including ingredients, machinery and the packaging segments.

UBM gets back from industry bodies

UBM India said they chose to launch the event after getting support from various industry associations and bodies, including Chemexcil – Basic Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics Export Promotion Council, The Indian Home and Personal Care Industry Association, Fragrances and Flavours Association of India, the EU Chamber of Commerce and the All India Cosmetic Manufacturer Association.

"UBM India has leveraged its expertise in hosting trade expos for multiple niche segments of the industry like ingredients, packaging, nutraceutical, wellness and fitness,” ​said Joji George, Managing Director, UBM India.

"The Personal Care India Expo 2015, will be an extension to this knowledge, providing an ideal platform for the personal care industry to develop and grow business in India's vibrant and rapidly growing market."

The event organisers say they also plan to hold a full serious of educative seminars and workshops that will touch on topics such as packaging, technology, ingredients and raw materials, which will be held following the event.

UBM’s growing footprint in Asia

Early last year, UBM announced that it was launching an event targeting the cosmetics in Thailand, which will also be held for the first time this year.

UBM describes the ASEANbeauty show as the ‘first premier international beauty trade show for South East Asia’, and it is scheduled to take place at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre on 8 – 10 April 2015.

ASEANbeauty will be based upon a core programme of seminars and educational workshops.

UBM highlighted Thailand’s strong market potential: which consists of 70 million potential consumers, and the fact that the beauty and personal care products grew 8% in 2012.
