As a response to Thailand’s fast growing beauty industry, fuelled by a strong economy and increasingly sophisticated consumers, Asia’s
leading events organiser UBM Asia, is launching a new beauty industry trade show – ASEANbeauty.
Southeast Asia is now a strategic region where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average. UBM intend ASEANbeauty to be the leading industry event where companies looking to expand in Southeast Asia will be able to build business networks and gain industry insights through seminars and educational workshops.
Mrs. Ketmanee Lertkitcha, President of The Thai Cosmetic Manufacturers Association and supporting partner of ASEANbeauty, welcomes the event: “We are proud to support ASEANbeauty as the market is ready for a fair representing the Southeast Asia region. The event will be the best place not only to meet potential buyers and distributors, but also to observe trends and gather market intelligence.”
