“French Cosmetic Awards” at the 20th Cosmoprof Asia Hong Kong (11-13 Nov 2015) [fr]
At the 20th edition of the Cosmoprof Asia Hong Kong trade show, which will take place from November 11 to 13, 2015 at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, “French Cosmetic Awards” is created by Business France to reward French brands that demonstrate an innovative and creative approach to the Chinese market.
A jury panel of professionals will test the participating French cosmetics products to honor those well-deserved winners in three categories: “Best of the Best”, “The Most Innovative Product” and “The Most Branded Product”.
The jury panel comprises independent beauty industry experts from Hong Kong, i.e. retailer Mekim Ltd and Asia Spa and Wellness Ltd, French companies who have solid presence in Hong Kong, i.e. Caudalie, L’Oréal and Ann Jema, as well as Ms. Joven Mak, Ex-Associate Publisher/Chief Editor of CosmoGIRL! (HK) and Ms. Queenie Chan, Celebrity Beauty Blogger at Hong Kong.
There will be a wide range of French products on display: spreading over 3 exhibition halls (Hall 1E, 3E and 5G), as well as the concourse area of Hall 1E, 108 companies on 1300m² of exhibition space will be unveiling their most ground-breaking products, and 39 of them will be exhibiting for the first time.
Two areas in particular will reflect the exceptional vigor of the French cosmetics and beauty industry:
French Buzz : a shop window for the buoyancy of research and creativity in the sector, this space will highlight 6 companies showcasing not only their latest technological innovations, but displaying their creativity in terms of concepts, images, targets, packaging, etc.
French Studio : located at the concourse area of Hall 1E, this booth will be coordinated by several exhibitors, each displaying a key product from its range.
France is a longstanding leader in the cosmetics sector, with around 1,000 companies in the industry. Present in more than 200 countries, it represents one quarter of the global export market. Asia is by far the most promising market in the world of cosmetics, and France’s top 20 customers include five Asian countries. As the gateway to the Asia-Pacific region, Cosmoprof Asia Hong Kong is unmissable. France, under the aegis of Business France, the national agency for the internationalization of the French economy, will present the very latest scientific and technological advances in the field.
In a multi-niche, ultra-segmented market of very high-quality products, the French companies will be demonstrating their superior expertise across the entire value chain, from ingredients to finished products, including private labels, haircare products, spa products and packaging. The France brand, a hallmark of quality and reliability, reigns supreme in the world of skincare (dermocosmetics and anti-aging products), makeup, fragrance and organic hygiene products for young mothers and babies, not forgetting men’s cosmetics and toiletries.
The French Pavilion, sponsored by AIR FRANCE and ARCHOS, will bring together regional delegations from Cosmetic Valley, Centreco, Bretagne International, Cosmed and - for the first time - the Hauts-de-Seine Chamber of Commerce (CCI 92). French manufacturers - all committed to an ethical and sustainable business approach, will be there to welcome you at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center from November 11 to 13 this year in Halls 1E (Cosmetics & Toiletries, Natural Health), 3E (Beauty Salon) and 5G (Pack & OEM) as well as Hall 1E Concourse where the French Pavilion will be presenting a new space: "French Studio".
