Successful return of the LOOK & beautyVISION 2022 Fair


On 7 - 8 May 2022, at the fairgrounds of MTP Poznań Expo, the most eagerly awaited event on the beauty market was held – the LOOK and beautyVISION Hairdressing and Cosmetics Fair, bringing together professionals from all over Poland. Thanks to the commitment of the exhibitors, event partners and organisers, as well as a large number of visitors, it was a successful return of the Fair, organised after a long break and changes that affected the entire service market. This year, the main focus was on face-to-face meetings, which everyone missed so much.

LOOK and beautyVISION Fair, organised by Grupa MTP, for many years has been Poland's most important event in the beauty sector. During the two emotional days of the event, everyone had the opportunity to learn from experts, exchange experience, make interesting contacts, learn about new trends in hair cutting, colouring and styling, as well as in make-up or face care, and place orders. When observing this year's Fair – the intensity of the meetings at the stands and the interest in the accompanying events – we could once again feel the good energy.

Visitors could visit several sectors offering new products – persons interested in hairdressing could find, among other things, professional hair or beard care products, salon equipment and specialised appliances, state-of-the-art devices and accessories. The offer also included high-quality body and nail care cosmetics. Exhibitors presented Polish as well as foreign brands, showing the season's most fashionable trends. The shows at the exhibitors' stands were an additional attraction, where one could see well-known educators and stylists at work.
