These companies will be featured in an innovative space to drive brands, companies  and investors to engage and explore potential opportunities for cutting-edge achievements: a unique opportunity to access the global beauty community at the world’s largest beauty event! APPLY NOW!

Reasons to join the fair

A dedicated show floor area
The devoted area is strategically located to allow maximum visibility and visitor traffic: signage will draw visitors right to the core of the Garden of Innovation. Each booth is tastefully designed and fully furnished as an “innovation tree”.

Cosmoprof Next
Cosmoprof Next is the pitch competition that will involve the 32 startups exhibiting at the event and venture capitalists, investors, top buyers and corporates. The event is organized in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and the Italian Trade Agency.

Cosmoprof MyMatch

Pre-show and showtime promotion
Startups that take part in Garden of Innovation will get special promotion on web and social media before and during the show. In addition the selected startups will get dedicated media exposure (such as the Press Vip Tour) and promotion opportunities such as the inclusion in the Show Directory (printed and online).
