The LATAM industry events worth looking out for in 2019
Looking ahead to 2019 there are a plethora of industry events worth noting down in the calendars for Latin American cosmetic and personal care players.

Among those are the FCE Cosmetique event in Sao Paulo in May, Expo Belleza in Medellin, Colombia in June, in-cosmetics Latin America in Sao Paulo in September and Belleza Y Salud in Bogota Colombia in October.

It also goes without saying that the biggest industry event for cosmetic and personal care ingredients and formulation players should not be given a miss by Latin American businesses either – that’s in-cosmetics Global, which will be taking place in Paris in April.

The Cosmetics Design team will be attending all of these events during the course of 2019 and will be bringing you news of the latest business developments as well as technology and product launches that will be showcased.

 FCE Cosmetique

The FCE Cosmetique event is an important one on the calendar for the Brazilian industry, mainly because it covers all aspects of the industry, from packaging to formulation and production.

The event will take place May 21 to 23 at the Sao Paulo Expo, in the south of the city, and this year its organizers are pledging to build on the success of last year.

Indeed, the figures for last year’s event showed that it was the biggest ever, with a combined 16,224 visitors found searching out more than 1100 brands in over 40,000m² of exhibition.

Expo Belleza Medellin

The Cosmetics Design team will be attending the Expo Belleza event in Medellin for the first ever time, which is a platform for new and emerging brands for the consumer, indie beauty and professional categories.

The event runs from 9 – 11 June and will be held at the Plaza Mayor Convention Center, which is situated in the heart of the city.

In the past the event has played out as more of a focus for Colombian beauty companies, but this year the organizers are pledging that it will have more of an international representation than ever.

In-cosmetics Latin America

This event started off as in-cosmetics Brazil four years ago, but was quickly rebranded to become the major ingredients event for the Latin American region.

This year the event will again be held at the Expo Norte exhibition space, in the North of the city, between 18 and 19 September.

The event will showcase some of the biggest trends in the region at the current time, which will undoubtedly touch on the massive hair care market, the fast growing men’s grooming market, and sustainability.

Belleza Y Salud Bogota

The Belleza Y Salud event will again be opening its doors at the Corferias event space, and the organizer has just very recently confirmed that the dates will be October 3 – 7.

This annual event has been growing rapidly in recent years, especially after it partnered up with the Cosmoprof event organizer, Bologna Fiere, two years ago.

Since then the event has been developed as a two-dimensional expo, representing the interests of both consumers as well as the B2B sector.
