Market Trends & Consumer Demands

Scheduled in Fall, the PCHi Technology Summit is meant as an extension of the main show that takes place in Spring annually. Sun Protection and Whitening were selected as the two key focus areas of this year’s Summit, in response to market trends and consumer demand.

Working in close partnership with the Cosmetics Science and Technology Innovation Committee (CSTIC), various supporters, and conference partners, RSE presented a strong line-up of industry experts who spoke about various technical aspects of skin health and whitening.

Personal Care Industry Platform

Supporters of the Summit include China Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries, China Cleaning Industry Association, China Information Center of Daily Chemical Industry, Sinopharm, Reed Exhibitions, and China Personal Care and Cosmetic Industry Alliance (CPCCIA).

Commenting on his involvement in the event, industry veteran Mr LI Huiliang, Professor Senior Engineer, shared:

“It was an honor to speak at the first PCHi Technology Summit. With its focused agenda on Sun Protection and Whitening, the Summit has identified two of the most important consumer trends today. I applaud RSE for organizing this event to provide an additional platform to further engage the personal care community. As global cosmetics trends continue to evolve quickly, the industry needs to convene more regularly to keep abreast and learn about latest developments and breakthrough technologies that are available.”

For the first time ever, selected sessions of the Summit were broadcasted live through an online portal. This move was well-received by speakers and delegates alike, and RSE was recognized by the industry for the smart and relevant use of infocomm technology.

Director of R&D at P&G, Mr Nelson JI said:

“I thought the live online broadcast of key sessions was a great idea. It’s an embodiment of innovation on the organizer’s part, and it created an opportunity for more people to join the meeting virtually, even if they couldn’t make it to the event personally. Overall, the Summit was well executed, with excellent speakers delivering strong, distinct content.”
