One of the main events is the exhibition. It is where exhibiting firms showcase their latest products.

The Fragrance Zone is where visitors can learn about new scents and trends while sampling products. The Lab Zone is the exhibition space for the latest lab equipment developments. Visitors can examine raw materials in the Innovation Zone. Besides the Zones, the exhibition event of In-cosmetics Paris frequently includes regional pavilions. The pavilions gather in one location, suppliers from the same geographical area. Such pavilions allow exhibiting firms to reach their audience while reducing costs. It also allows visitors to find suppliers for a specific region and save time.

Besides the exhibition, In-cosmetics Global features many educational events. Among them is the R&D tours, which showcase exhibitors related to an R&D trend of interest, such as sustainability or DIY solutions. There is also the Indie Trail, which allows visitors to find companies who support smaller productions.

Often, In-cosmetics includes dual-purpose interest areas. Among them are the Sensory Bar, the Make-up Bar, and the Sustainability Corner. The Sensory Bar is the location for examining new sensations.

The Bar is also the location for displaying products nominated for the Sensory Bar Award.

Similar is the Make-up Bar. It is dedicated to colour cosmetics, including new pigments and technologies. Visitors can examine new shades for eyeshadows, foundations, lip lacquers and nail varnishes. Like the Sensory Bar, this zone also shows products nominated for the Make-Up Award. The Sustainability Corner is an educational and showcasing area.
