    10) How do I navigate my way around the exhibition?
    We have a floorplan available in the in-cosmetics Global show catalogue to help you navigate your way around the exhibition.

    Exhibitors will be able to enter the halls from 08:00 - 19:00 on show days (2 - 4 2019).

    * Attendees booked to attend the pre-show Regulatory Conference - taking place 1st April 2019 from 13:00 - 18:00 in room Espace 2000 of the venue - should arrive around 15 - 30 minutes before the start.

    How do I access the Exhibitor Portal?
    To access the Exhibitor Portal, go to the website homepage and click on 'login' in the top right-hand corner and then enter your login details. If you have not received these details then click on 'activate your account/reset password' and these details will be sent to you in an email.

    3) When will the Exhibitor Manual go live and how can I access it?
    The Exhibitor Manual is now available in the Exhibitor Portal, and contains important deadline dates. The manual will ONLY be available to main standholders who have signed and returned their contract. It is very important that you grant access to the individual(s) responsible for managing your participation. Your unique access details can only be issued to agents and/or contractors on receipt of written authority from you.

    4) How do I register my sharers?

    As Reed Exhibitions and in-cosmetics Global only have a contractual relationship with main standholders, the sharer fee will, from now on, be charged to main standholder companies - not sharing companies. Sharers wishing to pay for their own registration fee should make payment arrangements directly with the main standholder. The main standholder will be able to register each sharer via the Exhibitor Portal, only after having informed the in-cosmetics Global team of the exact number of sharers you would like to register. Please email Emily Beard to request a sharer form.

    5) How do I book a meeting room at the show?
    Please contact your local Sales Manager via our contact us page.

    6) Is there WiFi inside the hall?
    Yes, but it is highly recommended that you order a hard wire internet connection for your stand via the Exhibitor Manual, as the WiFi is public and only strong enough to send and receive emails.

    7) When is the deadline to change my stand type?
    The deadline is on the 13th of March 2018. Please email Emily Beard to change your stand type.

    8) Is there a cloakroom at the show where I can leave my bag? 
    Yes, we will be providing a cloakroom at the show for you to store your belongings and this will be located near the main entrance.

    9) I have a question about my exhibitor badge, who do I contact? 
    Please email Emily Beard who will be able to assist you.
