HPCI CEE took place for the 7th time in Warsaw, Poland and clearly showed that it is the must-be event for the Home and Personal Care Industry in the CEE region.


The seventh edition of HPCI CEE (Home and Personal Care Ingredients Exhibition and Conference) , which was held in conjunction with Cosmetic Business Poland for the second time – from 27 to 28 September, continued the success and proved to be the number one event for this industry in the CEE region. More than 280 exhibitors and represented companies presented their products and services to over 1200 individual visitors coming to the Warsaw’s EXPO XXI Exhibition Centre. Specialists from the cosmetic, personal and home care sector received information about new, innovative solutions for formulating, developing, producing, testing and packaging their cosmetics and cleaning products. An almost 100% repeat booking rate of the exhibitors of the HPCI CEE Exhibition and highly satisfied visitors are the best proof that HPCI CEE is the key event in the CEE region for the respective industries.


A growing level of international visitors, especially from the CEE area

This year’s HPCI Exhibition and Conference CEE was the most international event since its existence. “Our visitors came from 32 countries. The Polish visitors with about 85% are still the biggest part, but more and more people are coming from Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, South Korea, Turkey,  China, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, Czech Republic and Hungary and many other countries, so it was a most attractive exhibition.” said Siegfried Fischer, HPCI director.


Numbers and quality

Over 280 exhibitors (and represented companies) introduced their products and services at the trade fair. A total of 1221 individual visitors from 32 countries came to the event, with many of them decision-makers in the fields of research & development, purchasing and product management from industrial companies in both the cosmetics and the detergent and cleaning products sectors.

In the Technical Seminars, the exhibitors presented their latest findings and news and also explained how to apply them in production.
