Participants notably commanded its impeccable organization and the well-suited program. "[Our delegation] could discover new products and technologies all along the week. It was really interesting for us", declared Christophe Masson, head of French cluster Cosmetic Valley and spokesman of GCC.EU. "We all have different profiles, and all of them are really happy with the organization and the activities of this week. The organization for perfect", added Adrià Martínez, representative of Spanish cluster Beauty Cluster.





All along the mission, various appointments provided participants with opportunities to better understand the Korean beauty landscape. Highlights include:

  • Retail tours in key beauty districts and flagship stores.
  • GCC.EU's participation in one of Asia's most renowned beauty exhibition, CosmoBeauty Seoul 2022, with a shared booth.
  • And numerous opportunities to partake in B2B meetings, networking sessions, press interviews and round tables!
