Ending on Sunday, BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF continues the success story crowning its 30th anniversary with an exceptionally fruitful trade fair. “For three decades now BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF has been the most important meeting place for professional cosmetics service providers.

Over three days a total of 1,400 exhibitors and brands were showcased at Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre in four halls. “The stable exhibitor and visitor numbers show that BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF is firmly established as the leading event for cosmetics services,” delights Director Helmut Winkler.
More than 130 events in the supporting programme focusing on the Cosmetics, Nail, Foot, Wellness and Spa themes as well as a plethora of innovations and trends made for happy faces both amongst visitors and exhibitors alike. The supporting programme with national and international make-up championships as well as various award ceremonies rounded off the varied line-up at the fair.
Underlining the importance of BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF as a leading fair were exhibitors from all areas who were very satisfied with results after three days of good discussions and contacts.
Commenting on this, for instance, Dr Christian Rimpler, First Chairman at the association Verband Cosmetic Professional e.V. said: “VCP members have noticed significantly more international visitors at their stands. We are delighted that the significance of BEAUTY has risen again abroad. The quality of trade visitors is at a high level and the great concept of the fair is going down fantastically well with visitors and exhibitors. As always, BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF is an extremely high-quality event.”
