The two-day fair was a great success with a record-breaking 112 exhibitors from four countries (Domestic: 108, Overseas: 4) and 5,136 professional visitors from all over the Kyushu region. The event, launched in 2014, has established its position as a must-attend trade event for the beauty industry in the region.
A lot of positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors showed that the fair is an ideal business platform for both exhibitors and visitors seeking opportunities to find new local partners, and to expand their business in Kyushu’s growing beauty market.
“We feel that the fair welcomed much more visitors than the previous edition,” said Ms Machiko Tsurukawa, Manager of Salon Support Division, Dr. Recella Corp. “We have been busy since the opening of the show. Visitors from the Kyushu region are very determined to gain information on the new products, and we had good discussions and negotiations with them. We are sure we can get good results out of those contacts.”
The special exhibition area ‘NEXT’, where exhibitors showcased their new products and brands, was very well received by visitors who were looking for the latest developments. Mr Kazuki Umemoto, Managing Director of MediProduct Co Ltd, commented: “This is our debut at Beautyworld Japan Fukuoka and we exhibited our brand new shampoo for eyelashes. Our main objective of participation at the show is to gain brand awareness, and the results were far beyond our expectations. The product catalogues we prepared for the show had gone already on the first day, and we had enough time to talk to many salon owners. We are very happy and will be back next year.”
Popular seminars were well attended by beauty professionals from the Kyushu region
The fair not only offered visitors a showcase of the latest products and services, but also an ample platform for techniques, knowledge, inspiration and information. This included the popular ‘Main stage’, consisting of a total of 17 seminars for aesthetic salons, hair dressing salons and nail salons, as well as a special seminar by the Japan Esthetic Organisation. Each of the seminars were extremely well accepted by beauty professionals who were eager to gain an insight in new and innovative techniques or to explore how they can improve their salons.
Ms Megumi Harada, owner of Medical Salon ma-chérie, commented: “I am always looking forward to visiting Beautyworld Japan Fukuoka, as I can see so many new products and services, and can attend seminars by lecturers we otherwise couldn’t see in the Kyushu region. I enjoyed discovering latest products and techniques, and I am looking forward to introducing them to my customers.”
The seventh edition of Beautyworld Japan Fukuoka will be held from 3 – 4 February 2020 at the Fukuoka Kokusai Centre, and will continue to contribute to the ongoing growth of the beauty and spa industry in the Kyushu region.
