Despite the cancellation of so many hair and beauty trade fairs around the world, we’ve just received the excellent news that InterCHARM Korea well-established leading professional trade fair, will be taking place in Seoul at COEX on September 23rd – 25th 2020.

A joint-venture with Reed Exhibitions, InterCHARM Korea is an event that the global beauty industry just cannot afford to miss out on, as it presents a perfect showcase and a platform for international brands to indulge in the booming Korean beauty market.

Certified as an international exhibition from the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, over the last 8 years it has gained much status in the cosmetics and beauty industry, achieving some very impressive numbers: last year the trade fair brought together over 300 exhibitors, around 40,000 attendees and 2,000 potential buyers from all over the world. The show covers all aspects of the beauty market from cosmetics, raw materials, packaging, professional salon and others, displaying the whole manufacturing process.

At the same time, multiple co-located events will be taking place, including WWD Forum, Nail Contest, Beauty Professional’s Seminar and Bio-Beauty/Medical-Beauty Zone. Furthermore, in order to maximize the success of the exhibition, the organizers are proposing one-to-one match-up business meetings that will be held during the show dates, offering a chance for international buyers to source good quality products and cost-effective solutions.

The organizers wish it to be known that if there were to be another unforeseen COVID-19 outbreak that could impinge on the show, they have already prepared a plan B in which 1:1 meetings will be directly moved forward to the online matchmaking platform.
