This is the fifth edition of the event, and each year Reed Exhibitions has managed to grow and develop the show to take it to the next level. It started as in-cosmetics Brazil, but now it has greater regional and international scope, as Zanetti explains in the interview.
Although the final visitor numbers are still to come in, visitor numbers were up at a healthy 6% on the first day, while exhibitor numbers were also up, with 26 companies exhibiting for the first time in 2018.
