Prague: Now more than 300 booths - World of Beauty & Spa reaches out for new dimensions

Exactly 316 booths - that means again a remarkable ten percent plus compared with this year's  spring event - with in total 330 exhibitors and 450 brands: This is the overwhelming result of the latest World of Beauty & Spa, International Trade Fair for Cosmetics, Hairdressers and Wellness which has been run from 19th to 20th September on the fair grounds of Vystaviste. Economic situation in the Czech Republic is extremely favourable:  Revenues esp. in the middle management have nearly reached Western European standards which stimulates the market for beauty and health substantially. Of course one of the main reasons for the very satisfying visitor's participation in the Fair (total: 20.000 visitors).

Since 2008, World of Beauty & Spa covers every three halls of Prague's fair grounds with a renewed structure of presentation strictly stucking to the main exhibiting sectors. Which are  professional and bio cosmetics, apparatus equipment, pedicure, manicure, nail design, nail art, hair and hairdressing, wellness, spa as well as direct sale und accessories.

What makes World of Beauty & Spa so extremely attractive in visitor's eyes is also the well-balanced side program with no less than three central points of interest all over the fair. As real highlights on the main stage appeared Pavel Bauer's demonstration of visage trends as well as the competition "Nice hands and feet" for the Beauty Expo Cup, the 3rd Special Competition of Podology, the famous "Beauty Expo & PROKOS Products Award" for the best branch performers and of course the Czech Championship in Make-up as well as the Czech and International Championships in Nail Design.

These were some of the most important lessons: Certification of cosmetic products, criteria for tattoos, news from the plastical chrirurgy, and the big wellness special starting with an introduction in the aromatherapy and it's use in the fields of cosmetic as well as a modern round-up of international massage techniques from lava stone and hawaiian up to "Champi" head massage. Reflexation therapy, irisdiagnosis and a current overview about all the possibilities of a modern day spa completed the agenda.
