in-cosmetics Latin America welcomed higher number of visitors ever

The event welcomed 3,890 unique visitors, representing a growth of 11% compared to last year edition. During the event, trade associations and exhibiting companies also reaffirmed positive outlooks for the Brazilian cosmetics sector.

in-cosmetics Latin America concluded its successful fourth edition, confirming the importance of its strategic focus for the beauty and personal care industry throughout Latin America. This year saw impressive attendance figures, with a total of 4,689 visitors - a 12% increase on last year. Of these, 3,890 were unique visitors, a figure which is up 11% since the last edition. Companies including Natura, O Boticario, Belcorp, Unique, Unilever, P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Hypermarcas, Beiersdorf, L’Oréal, Colgate-Palmolive, Estée Lauder, Mary Kay, Avon, Coty and many others attended this year’s show.

"The essence of B2B and the focus on raw materials is attracting an increasing number of professionals. We registered 46% new visitors and 9% of the total audience came from countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, the Dominican Republic, Peru and Mexico. This impressive draw of international visitors is the result of offering an exclusive programme for industry professionals from outside Brazil, who were brought to the event to discover local news, make contacts and do business with our exhibitors," explained Daniel Zanetti, Exhibition Director of in-cosmetics Latin America.

Brazil to return to growth

According to the Brazilian Association of the Personal Hygiene, Perfumery and Cosmetics Industry (ABIHPEC), if end-of-year sales are strong, the sector should see growth of between 1% and 3% in 2017.

At the opening press conference, ABIHPEC’s President João Carlos Basilio shared more information about the sector’s future commercial expectations. He said: "There are good prospects for Brazil to surpass Japan and return to the position of the third-largest market in the world for this industry in 2018."
