BANGKOK, March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Thailand’s beauty industry is growing, fueled by increasingly sophisticated consumers, including the men’s market which is proving to be particularly lucrative. With 70 million potential consumers, the luxury goods segment continues to boom with a 24% increase in year-on-year sales. There are many opportunities for both international as well as domestic companies in this vibrant market, which values new and innovative products. A recent reduction in import duties in Thailand is also believed by the government to be attracting more foreign shoppers, as well as increasing domestic spending on cosmetics.
ASEANbeauty 2015 expects to attract over 200 exhibiting brands from different countries and regions including Taiwan, mainland China, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and Thailand, who will join a host of global businesses focusing on the Asia region. Many of these brands will take the opportunity to launch new products and innovations during the event. At the show visitors can also take advantage of free conference programs to develop a winning product and business strategy to prepare for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
On the afternoon of Wednesday, 8 April, a Beauty Talk: "Thailand is Ready for The ASEAN Beauty Market," with invited speakers from association and government bodies will share thoughts on how Thailand is ready for the ASEAN beauty market and how the AEC will impact the ASEAN beauty industry as a whole. Another highlighted conference not to be missed will be "Consumers and Marketing Focus for The Cosmetics Industry in 2015." This will enable industry players to stay ahead with the latest trends, with brand new market data, case studies and insights. The presentations are free to attend and guaranteed to spark new marketing ideas.
The event will also present many live demonstrations and workshops on hair, nails, and make-up application and techniques. This comprehensive offering will help in bringing you innovative market knowledge and improve your skills and vision for your business in the future. The event is expecting to welcome over 8,000 trade visitors from across the ASEAN region when it opens its doors in April 2015.
Held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Bangkok, Thailand, ASEANbeauty 2015 will run from April 8 to 10, 2015.
