Quadex, organiser of Olympia Beauty, has revealed the event attracted 23,479 visitors, a seven per cent increase on last year’s numbers.

The two-day event, which benefited from added floor space (more than 14,000 square metres), welcomed 500 brands to the show, 92 of which were new to the exhibition. And the event, which took place in Olympia’s Grand and West Halls, also hosted 431 nail experts from 24 countries who descended upon the event to take part in the Nailympics.

Said Scott Derbyshire, managing director, Quadex Exhibitions: “This year’s Olympia Beauty exceeded all expectations; it was a phenomenal show, which saw over fifty-four stands rebook before the doors had closed on the final day.

“There are many contributing factors that make Olympia Beauty such an amazing event, but ultimately it gives the thousands who attend the two days a phenomenal insight in to the brands and suppliers that contribute to making the UK beauty industry such a vibrant place to be.

“It gives exhibitors an audience with UK and international visitors and competitors, and its timing is perfect for brands wishing to launch for Christmas and New Year.”

Dates for Olympia Beauty 2013 have been confirmed as September 22-23 and it will again take in both the Grand and West Halls at Olympia.
