It was nice to meet various companies in person at the booth after a long time. I was able to get introduced to various raw ingredients, and it was good to see the stability and texture of products.

Heesun Park
Researcher, Coreana Cosmetics

It was easy to meet with lots of industry people and share information together. in-cosmetics Korea is a great place for networking and I will go every year.

Moonseok Lee
R&D Manager, Gowoonsesang cosmetics

I liked that I could listen to each company’s patented materials and formulations in detail and ask questions immediately, and communicate directly with researchers, not salespeople.

Haeun Yu
Researcher, NB BIO Company Co., Ltd.

It is a place where you can be introduced to cosmetics-related trends and raw materials at once, and I think it is an exhibition optimized to grasp the market trend.

Hyeji Kim
Researcher, DONG-A PHARM

I was very busy during the exhibition. I had so many visitors and they requested meetings so they could not even attend the seminar that they planned. We were also able to meet a lot of new customers. I’ve been satisfied with in-cosmetics Korea every year. The 2023 exhibition has already been booked.

At RX, we are serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our shows and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being Net Zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

In 2023 we will publish our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our shows.
