Cosmoprof Awards — Honouring the Most Innovative Companies

by August 18, 2017 General

HONG KONG, Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cosmoprof Asia 2017, the most important exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region for trends and novelties of the cosmetic world, proudly presents the inaugural Cosmoprof Awards specially designed to recognise the most innovative products.

This is just one of the initiatives across the two venues of Cosmoprof Asia, the show representing all beauty sectors — Perfumery and Cosmetics, Natural and Organic, Beauty Salon, Hair, Nail and Accessories — to be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from November 15-17. Meanwhile, Cosmopack Asia, to be held at the AsiaWorld-Expo from November 14-16, gives exposure to the entire supply chain of the beauty industry, from ingredients to contract manufacturing, from machinery to packaging.

Unlike other competitions in the industry, Cosmoprof Awards is open to companies from all sectors of the beauty industry attending the Cosmoprof Asia 2017, from exhibitors of raw materials and formulation, to those involved in packaging and OEM, machinery, as well as finished products.

Cosmoprof Awards consists of the Innovation CircleAwards and the Beauty CircleAwards. The Innovation Circle Awards, presented for the first time last year, acknowledges companies with excellence in formulation and packaging, which are exhibiting in AsiaWorld-Expo. Meanwhile, the Beauty Circle Awards, making its debut in 2017, celebrates the creativity and the most successful marketing strategies of exhibitors in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Both initiatives are organised in partnership with Beautystreams, the company which also designs the display area for the finalists’ products. Meanwhile, the design of the trophies is being undertaken by Centdegrés.

Companies can submit their products or projects online according to categories by September 15. The finalists will be announced on September 26 to provide ample time for them to send their products to Hong Kong.

Winners of the Innovation Circle Awards will be announced on November 14 at the AsiaWorld-Expo, while winners of the Beauty Circle Awards will be unveiled on November 15 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
