Aimed to capture the latest trends in the upstream of the beauty industry and identifying new possibilities for technological innovation, CBE has carefully curated specially themed exhibition halls that will inspire new innovations throughout the entire industrial chain. Here, we present you with all that you want to see.
Highlight 1：IP Licensing & Cosmetics Manufacturing
In recent years, the IP economy in China has taken off. With distinctive images, unique cultural characteristics, large fan bases, and strong profitability, IPs have become attractive to all industries. Almost all brands hope to make the most of the unique attributes of popular IPs to establish emotional bonds with their consumers, differentiate brands, improve competitiveness and achieve win-win results.
It’s without a doubt that a larger number of cosmetics brands will utilize IPs to empower themselves. Consumers of the younger generation are willing to splash money on what they truly love. What’s increasingly obvious is that various forms of entertainment and games are being integrated into cosmetics. IPs from other sectors help cosmetics manufacturers to communicate their brand stories in the language that young people prefer.
How can IPs be deeply combined with the beauty industry? In 2020, CBE will present N7 IP Licensed Cosmetics Manufacturing, which will be characterized by online visibility, offline exhibition and immersive experience to ensure interaction. It will focus on three major elements of licensing, IP resources, procurement & acquisition, and self-owned brands in order to facilitate deep bonding of quality IPs with cosmetics brands and manufacturers to encourage crossover products.
In addition to the area showcasing the new ecology of cosmetics manufacturing, N7 will also include a crossover lab, IP licensing forums, and many other exciting activities. To learn about successful practices and the latest trends, please come to N7 to join us in re-defining the value of cosmetics products.
Highlight 2：Design Is Power
In an era when people look for individuality, competition is even tougher for cosmetics manufacturers. As a good appearance can bring about opportunities, packaging can truly empower cosmetics. An appealing look is an important step for brands to focus on. As a result, the packaging industry needs to keep up with the times and introduce creative designs for better growth.
For 2020, CBE has carefully created a new exhibition hall, N8 International Design, to fuel further growth of cosmetics with creative designs and ensure a perfect balance between fashion and technological development. This hall, together with N7 IP Licensed Beauty Manufacturing Museum and N4 Premium & Makeup Packaging, will form a powerful design platform in the eastern wing of the exhibition center and present the best possible packaging solutions with exquisite design. The three halls, appealing to quality buyers from different parts of the world, are sure to be an eye-catching highlight of the event.
Organized by CBE and 8am Branding, the Premium Packaging – Big Design Trends Exhibition will be in its 6th edition. Formerly located in Hall N4, it will be moved to Hall N8. It is a must attend event at CBE revealing new packaging trends of 2020.

CBE will partner with Brilliant Award, the most prestigious award in the world for packaging design, top design institutes from Europe, international design firms and representatives to announce awards on improving the quality of packaging to achieve symbiosis between packages and brands.
Meanwhile, CBE is committed to discover new designers for the packaging industry to encourage the development of packaging design for cosmetics products in China. At the 25th exhibition, CBE will cooperate with well-known international design firms, leading packaging manufacturers and the top ten design schools in China to hold the 2020 China Cosmetics Packaging Design Competition to look for young designers to boost the development of cosmetics packaging design.
W10 is situated at the entrance to the northern hall of Shanghai New International Expo Center, a good location to attract a lot of buyers. It forms a triangle with the two established packaging material halls W4 and W5, and is sure to appeal to buyers and generate direct purchase orders.
