GREAT Pavilion, China Beauty Expo

 12-14 May 2021, Shanghai

About the event

China is the world’s second-largest cosmetics market; and with increased urbanisation, disposable income, and social media influence, the beauty and personal care sector is seeing burgeoning demand for higher quality and premium product. Retail trade revenue of cosmetics in China grew from £8bn GBP in 2009 to nearly £33bn GBP in 2019, and is forecasted to surpass £44bn GBP by 2023, highlighting its huge potential.

As part of the China Britain Beauty Festival, and in light of the regulation changes towards animal testing in China, Department for International Trade (DIT) is inviting applications to join the GREAT Pavilion to exhibit, network and build market presence through China Beauty Expo (CBE), China’s largest beauty tradeshow.
