Cosmetica Friedrichshafen

15. - 16. June 2024 | International cosmetics trade fair

The Cosmetica in Friedrichshafen is an international trade fair for the cosmetics industry. Since moving from Stuttgart, it takes place annually in Friedrichshafen and is exclusive to industry professionals with credentials. It has cemented its reputation as a pivotal expo in the field with multiple events held across Germany, combining business and education with communication, innovation, and live shows..

The exhibition grounds, which were newly occupied in 2002 and situated in close proximity to the airport, are among the most modern in Europe, characterized by their diverse and adaptable functionalities. With 12 halls, an exhibition space of 87,500 square meters, versatile conference rooms, two central outdoor areas, and an on-site lake, the venue provides endless opportunities for a wide variety of events. Located centrally on the northern shore of Lake Constance, the exhibition grounds are easily accessible from all directions, whether by car, plane, bicycle, or public transport.

The organizer of these cosmetics trade fairs is KOSMETIK international Messe GmbH, which has been successfully organizing this series of events in cities such as Hannover, Dortmund, Berlin, and Wiesbaden for many years. Cosmetica places a particular emphasis on quality, merging business, education, communication, innovation, and entertainment. Exhibitors showcase both cutting-edge and time-tested products in well-structured exhibition areas: decorative, care, and equipment-based cosmetics. Moreover, natural cosmetics, makeup, nail and foot care, and cosmetic accessories are also part of the fair's lineup, perfectly complementing the offerings. Industry professionals can take advantage of hands-on workshops, makeup shows, and product demonstrations to experience the latest product innovations first-hand and can also try out the most recent techniques in treatment demonstrations.

Cosmetica is accompanied by a congress that is free for all trade fair visitors. Distinguished speakers and industry experts provide insights into the current trends and future outlook of the cosmetics industry. As a hub for information and communication, Cosmetica also emphasizes knowledge exchange and networking with peers and business partners.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 2 days of the fair, from 05. May to 06. May 2018, about 640 exhibitors and 14228 visitors on the Cosmetica in Stuttgart.
