After its successful debut, the Summit is back.
Who does it attract?
“The inaugural run of our Summit was very well-received — with over 380 industry professionals in attendance and 11,000 online views,” noted Peter Liu, PCHi Project Manager.
The event, “designed for in-depth exploration of key industry trends, knowledge exchange, and professional networking” proposes to offer a “unique platform” to the personal care industry.
Launching in 2017, the PCHi Technology Summit emerged as “an extension of the innovative and excellent discussions that take place during the annual PCHi trade event in Spring”, added Liu. It is supported by PCHi’s Cosmetics Science & Technology Innovation Committee (CSTIC).
Continuing the success of its first instalment, this year’s Summit will contain a conference and product portfolio showcase. An awards ceremony will also highlight the contributions of global brands and how they are influencing the international international personal and home care sector.
Worldwide industry trends and regulations will form the core theme of this year’s event, while its breakout sessions will pay homage to two of the global space’s formidable trends: sensitive skin and ageing.
Established by CSTIC, the agenda will address the whole supply chain including rules and regulations surrounding this segment, understanding formulations, manufacturing technology, product testing and efficacy evaluation.
Bigger and better
Around 600 industry professionals are anticipated to partake in this year’s education programme and exhibition, almost doubling the numbers from 2017.
These range from personal care ingredient manufacturers and suppliers, OEMs and ODMs, cosmetics companies’ management personnel; and industry executives from areas of research and development, testing, packaging, and regulatory affairs. Individuals from industry associations, educational institutions and government bodies are also expected to attend.
“Through the Summit, we hope to provide attendees with a better grasp of market dynamics, greater understanding of industry trends, and more technical insights,” Liu went on to say.
Setting the expectation for the 2018 Summit, Liu concluded: “I believe that the agenda, pulled together by the esteemed CSTIC, has us poised to deliver the most enriching and comprehensive programme, tailored to the needs of the industry and the attendees’ business objectives.”
