HPCI Home and Personal Care Exhibition and Conference is Getting New Owners













Berlin, Germany - June, 2018

New opportunities for HPCI
The globally acknowledged “Home and Personal Care Ingredients Exhibition and Conference (HPCI)” portfolio, established and managed to great acclaim by Verlag für chemische Industrie H. Ziolkowsky GmbH (SOFW), has a new home.

The HPCI events in Poland, Turkey and South Africa are now owned by Vincentz Network, the event in India by Exponova.

 “It was the right step forward for the HPCI congresses. The events have been growing continually over the past years and new ideas and investments are necessary to further grow the events and make sure, that all exhibitors continue to have the best services possible “, says Robert Fischer, GM of Verlag für chemische Industrie.

We will continue to strive for excellence, providing premium service to all those involved in the industry, both visitors and exhibitors and we look forward to taking the HPCI events to the next level. While maintaining the concept of the events, with their successful mix of know-how exchange, business interaction and networking opportunity, we will expand the portfolio of both events and services. Creating value will be key”, says Juergen Nowak, Publisher at Vincentz Network.


Vincentz Network (VN) is a global leader for information and networking services, notably small and large-scale exhibitions, conferences and seminars. One focus has been the coatings industry, which addresses issues that are structurally related to the HPCI industry, with raw material development and usage being a core topic.

Exponova, the new owner of HPCI India, is a Joint Venture of Colour Publications (India), NuernbergMesse (Germany) and Vincentz Network. “The HPCI event in India will thus benefit not only from VN`s expertise and energy, but also from two more entities which have already been organizing the event in cooperation with the previous owner. They will hit the ground running, while VN will ensure maximum synergies between all HPCI events around the world”, adds Juergen Nowak.

The Home and Personal Care Ingredients Exhibitions and Conferences (HPCI)
are the B2B communication forums for emerging and new markets. They are effective exhibition platforms for all suppliers of ingredients and services to the home and personal care industries in areas where the markets are growing and vibrant. HPCI Conferences give latest and important information on the developments in R&D, new formulations and regulatory issues in the fields of cosmetics and detergents and fragrances.  The HPCI Exhibitions offer visitors insight on new technologies and ingredients – and a meeting place to discuss questions face to face with peers. HPCI concentrates on fast developing markets, which are in the focus of business interest.
