The first edition of HPCI South Africa was held in conjunction with the annual Coschem conference from September 4-5, 2019 in Johannesburg, Gallagher Exhibition Centre. The first event on the African Country exclusively devoted to ingredients for home and personal care products started with about 25 international exhibitors representing 87 international companies. HPCI South Africa was attended by more than 500 home care and personal care experts. Visitors and exhibitors were equally satisfied with this premiere.
In addition to the show, the annual conference of Coschem offered an extensive programme of lectures focusing on the dissemination of scientific information. Local and international presenters were invited to present papers outlining new research and developments and new materials that can be brought to market.
