Cosmoprof Asia will celebrate its 18th edition from 13 to 15 November 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.  This is my preferred industry show, as a writer I can cover every aspect of the beauty industry and meet with key professionals under one roof, initially I became a fan of Cosmoprof North America and then attended Cosmoprof Asia for the first time last year, for anyone in the industry this is an excellent business show to attend – no question.
