This is an in-person meeting.


19th-20th Oct 2023


San Diego, CA

5th Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA


If you are a start-up we would love to hear from you. Email [email protected] or complete this form for access to a bespoke package to meet your particular needs.

It is an exciting time for the microbiome industry and recent FDA approvals and successful fundraising point towards the industry’s potential for therapeutic applications. Developments in the Skin space such as partnerships, collaboration, and licensing agreements, are all designed to boost companies’ product ranges. For example, in 2022 BioGaia and Skinome agreed to research and develop a product to support the skin microbiome. A recent report predicts that the global microbiome skincare products market, valued at USD 381.5 million in 2022 will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.9% from 2023 to 2030.

The Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA explores the burgeoning field of skin microbiome research and included case studies focusing on a range of skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, acne, allergy, wounds, beauty, scalp, immune system, and anti-aging as well as discovering the progress of clinical trials of microbiome-based products being developed to fight these diseases.

“I got useful information about the front line of Skin microbiome research and current trends”
“Diverse set of talks from important players.”
“Great variation in the content, was great to have the concurrent sessions”
“Skin microbiome is my primary interest, but learning in adjacent areas like prebiotics/technical development of models is also important”

Global Engage is a member of ISLA, a body established to accelerate the event industry transition to a sustainable future. As part of this, we are committed to selecting venues with more sustainable practices.

What does this mean for you and how can you play your part?

Event App

We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.


You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.


An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
