With only several weeks left to the first personal care industry event of the year, Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions (RSE) is well on its way to ensure a successful ninth edition of Personal Care and Homecare Ingredients (PCHi) in China. From 1-3 March 2016, the annual trade show will present innovative solutions from over 400 international and domestic exhibitors, offering a wide range of personal care and homecare ingredients, fragrance ingredients, laboratory services, as well as packaging and machinery solutions at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Centre.

Elynn Xu, PCHi Project Manager, Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions, stated, “We are encouraged that more than 10,000 domestic and international visitors have already pre-registered for PCHi 2016. And this is a glowing testimony of how our show quality has vastly improved over the years. Every year, we do our utmost to present creative and new show initiatives, and these activities have been well received by visitors and exhibitors alike. This edition, show attendees can look forward to PCHi’s new segment — the Fragrance@PCHi zone, and participate in evergreen PCHi activities, such as the PCHi 2016 Conference Programme and our very own PCHi Awards ceremony, amongst others.”
