UBM Asia partners with Interexpo in Malaysia

News this week: UBM Asia has reached a partnership agreement with Malaysian organiser, Interexpo (M) Sdn Bhd, to organise the annual Beauty Expo beginning with this year’s event. According to UBM, key members of the Beauty Expo team will join UBM Malaysia to further develop the show.

Mak Weng Kit, owner and CEO of Interexpo and a 30-year veteran of the exhibition industry in Malaysia, developed the Beauty Expo more than 15 years ago. This partnership adds to UBM’s growing portfolio of beauty, cosmetics and wellness events across Asia, which already includes PhilBeauty in the Philippines, ASEANBeauty in Thailand, Diet & Beauty in Japan and Hong Kong’s Cosmoprof Asia.

Commenting on the partnership, Mak said, “Before becoming an entrepreneur I used to work for UBM. So it feels like something of a homecoming to be once again working with the company. I am excited about the potential to further grow Beauty Expo in partnership with UBM.”
