The Cosmetic 360 Awards will recognize the best innovations presented by exhibitors in each of six specialized categories, which correspond to the exhibition floor’s “expert-routes”.


Winners of this competition will be chosen by a jury of leading cosmetics industry journalists, who will make their decisions on the basis of project novelty and the quality of booth signage advertising the showcased innovations.

The winners of each specialized category will receive their prize in an official ceremony which will take place on Wednesday, October 17th, at 6p.m. on the COSMETIC 360 trade fair in the presence of the organizing team, the jury and the sponsors.


On Tuesday, October 9th, 2018, the jury gathered together to select the 3 nominees of each expert-route, from among all the exhibitors who had submitted the competition. On the trade fair, find the nominated exhibitors with a special badge posted on their booth!
