BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF 2015, Leading International Trade Fair for Cosmetics, Nail, Foot, Wellness and Spa, celebrated its 30th anniversary with another very successful staging. “For three decades now BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF has been the most important meeting place for professional cosmetics service providers. Underlining its importance as a platform for innovations, information and further training also in 2015 were the 51,000 trade visitors from 60 countries,” stated Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.

Over three days, a total of 1,400 exhibitors and brands were showcased in four hall halls at the exhibition center in Düsseldorf, Germany. “The stable exhibitor and visitor numbers show that BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF is firmly established as the leading event for cosmetics services,” added BEAUTY Director Helmut Winkler.

Visitors and exhibitors were pleased with the more than 130 events of the supporting program focusing on cosmetics, nail, foot, wellness and spa themes as well as the presented innovations and trends. The national and international make-up championships and various award ceremonies rounded off the ancillary program.

The exhibitors from all product segments were very satisfied with the results of BEAUTY 2015 and reported good discussions and contacts. “VCP members have noticed significantly more international visitors at their stands. We are delighted that the importance of BEAUTY has again increased abroad. The quality of trade visitors is at a high level and the great concept of the trade fair is very popular with visitors and exhibitors alike. As always, BEAUTY DÜSSELDORF is an extremely high-quality event,” commented Dr Christian Rimpler, First Chairman at the Association Cosmetic Professional (VCP).

Mechtild Geismann, President of the Central Association of German Podologists and Podiatrists (ZFD), also drew a positive conclusion: “BEAUTY is simply the most important event for the entire sector. It is well known that the ZFD provides independent advice here so visitors specifically come to us with questions. We are very satisfied with the interest and the enquiries at the stand.” The special “Podology Training” area was very well received.

Highly rated was the attractively designed Wellness exhibition area. “Overall, I am thoroughly pleased with the audience response. We have received a lot of attention and compliments from all sides. The professionals realize that standards are set here in Düsseldorf,” said Lutz Hertel, Chairman of the German Wellness Association. The supporting program events at the Meeting Point Wellness and in the SPA BUSINESS LOUNGE were well attended. “One of my special highlights was the presentation of the Spa Manager of the Year award to Guy Burke from Interalpenhotel in Seefeld as well as the presentation of the Wellness & Spa Innovation Awards,” mentioned Lutz Hertel.

The Wellness & Spa Innovation Awards 2015 went to QMILK (in the Beauty & Body Care Products category), Vagheggi Diorit (in the Beauty & Body Care Treatments category), IONTO-SPA Evolution (in the Hotel & Spa Interior category) and the heath resort Freiburg (in the Hotel & Spa Concepts category).
