Bringing together talented formulators and R&D specialists, the Formulation Lab will once again offer select sessions to help attendees learn new formulation technologies. Sponsored by Brenntag, the sessions are open exclusively to R&D professionals from cosmetics manufacturers or contract manufacturers.
A new hybrid approach
Following feedback from attendees at in-cosmetics' online events over the past 24 months, this year's in-cosmetics Global will take a new hybrid approach to learning and sourcing by combining face-to-face and digital opportunities. Designed to complement the face-to-face experience, the virtual event will enable attendees to continue the conversation and catch up on seminar sessions missed at the show.
After three days of innovations in Paris, in-cosmetics Global will open its virtual doors from April 11 to 22. Participants will be able to discover the digital equivalents of some of the show's elements. In addition, brand-new learning opportunities via the Marketing Trends seminar program will offer attendees access to the latest industry trends, facts, figures, market analysis and research data.
"After three years of virtual in-cosmetics events in Europe, we're delighted to return to Paris to reconnect the industry face-to-face. In recent years, we've seen a growing appetite for face-to-face networking and collaboration. That's why, this year, we're striving to provide a safe and secure environment for the sector to do business. This includes three days of in-person sourcing and networking, and for the first time in the show's history, a follow-up virtual event that will expand collaboration and learning opportunities. We're counting down the days, looking forward to a triumphant return to Paris, and eager to welcome the industry that will be joining us."said Roziana Zulkifli, Director of in-cosmetics Global.
