Comprehensive trade platform
BBAB 2016 is a comprehensive platform for the ASEAN beauty industry and is co-organised by the Federation of Thai Industries, Informa Exhibitions and IMPACT Exhibition Management. The show is effectively mirroring the Thai beauty industry as the hub for the beauty industry in Southeast Asia, with its expanding profiles to ensure that this platform supports the rapidly growing beauty trade in the region. “BBAB has moved at a rapid developmental pace since its first edition and the exciting new initiatives presented by the show reflect the leadership of the show in leading the region in future trends and ensuring exponential growth opportunities for the beauty business community. This is especially important with the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in effect which presents greater trade opportunities for the entire Southeast Asian region.” shared Claudia Bonfiglioli, International Director, Informa Beauty cluster.
BBAB 2016 will also serve as an effective platform for SMEs in the ASEAN beauty industry to access the trade, networking and knowledge opportunities present at this international trade show, boosting their growth potential to keep pace with the growing global beauty industry competitive landscape. Chernporn Tengamnuay, Vice Chairman, The Federation of Thai Industries commented, “The Federation of Thai Industries has been working closely with both the public and private sectors to encourage the SMEs and newly established start-ups to muscle up their production processes to be more efficient with greater competency due to the opening of AEC. We believe that Thailand has already rightfully established itself as a hub for the ASEAN beauty industry and BBAB 2016 will continue to bring more quantitative benefits for the SMEs and new start-up, as well as contribute substantially to the product enhancement and quality elevation of ASEAN beauty brands globally.”
Ketmanee Lertkitcha, Chairman, Cosmetics Industry Club, The Federation of Thai Industries added, “The opening of the AEC is a positive signal for encouraging the Thailand Health and Beauty Industry which is valued at 250 billion baht in 2014. Of which, 100 billion baht was generated from exports while 150 billion baht was the national market value – an increase of 8-10%. 2016 is projected to see a revenue increase of at least 15-20%. I anticipate that the Thai Health and Beauty Industry which is already the market leader in ASEAN, will continue its rapid growth to be among the top 10 markets globally in the next 3-5 years.”
“BBAB 2016 brings a new level of excitement and opportunities to the beauty industry as a one-stop business and industry platform. BBAB 2016 will cater to the evolving needs of the industry and meeting the local, regional and global needs of the entire supply chain of the beauty business. The strong support shown from industry associations and renowned organisations underlies the strong confidence in BBAB, which has established itself as the must-attend beauty trade business event in Southeast Asia.” said Loy Joon How, General Manager, IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd.
