Cosmetica Hanover

| International cosmetics trade fair

The Cosmetica in Hannover is an international trade fair for the cosmetics industry, which has established itself as a leading event in the sector with additional events throughout Germany. It takes place at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds, located in the southern part of the state capital, in the Mittelfeld district, which is the second-largest exhibition site globally. Notably, significant fairs are organized at these grounds annually..

The event organizer for these cosmetic fairs is the KOSMETIK International Messe GmbH, which has successfully conducted this series of events in locations like Wiesbaden, Dortmund, Berlin, and Friedrichshafen for many years.

The fair takes place annually and is exclusively open to professional visitors with the appropriate credentials. Cosmetica emphasizes quality and bridges business, continuing education, communication, innovation, and entertainment. Exhibitors showcase both innovative and proven products in clearly structured exhibit sectors: decorative, care-based, and device-based cosmetics. Moreover, natural cosmetics, makeup, nail and foot care, as well as cosmetic accessories, are part of the event program, complementing the offerings perfectly. Professional visitors have the opportunity to experience the latest product innovations firsthand through practical workshops, makeup shows, and product demonstrations and can also try out the most recent treatment techniques.

Industry professionals can immerse themselves in these products during the hands-on workshops, makeup shows, and live product demos, testing out the latest treatment methods. Accompanying Cosmetica is a congress, free for all fair attendees, where renowned speakers and experts discuss current trends and developments in the cosmetics industry. As an information and communication platform, Cosmetica also emphasizes knowledge exchange and networking with peers.

The Cosmetica in Hanover took place from Saturday, 01. July to Sunday, 02. July 2023.
