(KUALA LUMPUR, 27 July) UBM ASEAN has acquired the Cosmobeauté series of beauty trade exhibitions that are held annually in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.

These shows are highly complementary to UBM and Informa’s existing beauty events in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines. UBM and Informa also organise large-scale well-established beauty and wellness trade exhibitions in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chengdu, Japan and India.

“It pleases me and all of UBM to welcome the Cosmobeauté shows to our growing family of top exhibitions,” said Jimé Essink, President and CEO of UBM Asia. “This makes UBM and Informa the clear leader for the beauty trade sector in Asia.”

“The Cosmobeauté shows are now part of a network of the most important beauty exhibitions in Asia,” said M Gandhi, Group Managing Director ASEAN Business and Vice President of UBM Asia. “Bringing these events under a common leadership and management will further align their development and better position each to serve the market.”

With nearly 300 exhibitors from 13 countries, visitors to Cosmobeauté Asia certainly had plenty of options to explore and discover the right products and services for them.

Throughout the past few days, our Beaute Meeting teams have arranged over 350 meetings between potential buyers and our exhibitors. These trade buyers, whom were from reputable distributors and major retailers in Malaysia and nearby ASEAN countries, were given undivided attention by the meeting experts and exhibitors, from the moment they pulled up at their reserved valet lots, right up to the conclusive handshake at the end of their meetings.

“This is our first time joining this exhibition. Previously we have been joining exhibitions in the health industry, but it is our first approach in the beauty industry, because we think that this market is a big market” said Kyle Tan of Youth Hope International Co Ltd from Taiwan. “So far so great, as we have been approached by customers and clients from different industries, such as spas, beauty companies, and distributors of cosmetics” he further added.

On this note, we wish to thank all exhibitors, visitors, and supporting partners for making this year’s Cosmobeauté Asia remarkable as well! See you next July!



The 3rd day of Cosmobeauté Asia 2018 started off early as well, with contestants coming from countries as far as Italy arriving early to prepare for the 6th CosmoNail Cup Eyelash & Embroidery Competition. At the end of the day, the judges announced this year’s winners amidst cheers from the contestants’ supporters.

Apart from the South African Pavilion, the Korean, Singaporean, and Taiwanese pavilions have returned in this year’s Cosmobeauté Asia as well, as unwavering interest in the beauty trends from these countries attracted groups of distributors and salon owners.

Urutan Malaysia (lit. Malaysia Massage), which is the brainchild of the Malaysian Association of Wellness and Spa (MAWSPA) and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, was featured today in a full-day demonstration for the visitors to experience first-hand. The massage, which was launched last October, will be gradually introduced to the spa industry through MAWSPA and its network of members nationwide.

Don’t miss out on the action, as tomorrow is the last day for you to meet our exhibitors from around the world!
