Premier Expo's events stand out by their high level of organisation, making them some of the leading events in Ukraine in their respective sectors. Each one of them has enjoyed longstanding support from Government bodies and industry associations.

In April 2012, the company acquired the largest professional beauty industry shows in Ukraine: InterCHARM and Estet Beauty Expo.
