The 53rd edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna has been rescheduled again to 28 April -2 May 2022.
Event organisers BolognaFiere said the event, which was due to take place on 10-14 March, was moved to facilitate the in-person attendance of international operators.
“The 2022 edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna must be a real support to the cosmetic industry,” said Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere. “It is our duty towards the more than 2,700 exhibiting companies confirmed to date, the institutions and associations that continue to make us feel their support, all buyers and distributors who follow our initiatives to develop their business.
“The decision to postpone the event further to 28 April – 2 May, albeit painful, is the result of a responsible dialogue with our players to facilitate the presence of international operators, who can, therefore, organise the visit to Bologna with greater ease and live their return to Cosmoprof with greater serenity.”
Renato Ancorotti, president of Cosmetica Italia – Italian personal care association, commented: “The cosmetic industry keeps showing its resilience, facing changes without giving up the distinctive features of its products, which are highly regarded abroad for their quality and for combining innovation with creativity, a typical feature of the Italian know-how. This is an approach the cosmetics sector has always used and it still does, while facing a new reorganisation in response to the postponement of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.
“Flexibility in production, investments in research, long-term vision, timely response to the changes in purchasing attitudes, new procurement methods are just some of the initiatives implemented by our companies to cope with the global constraints imposed by the pandemic.
“These are also reasons why the entire national cosmetic sector will be ready, alongside the long-standing partner BolognaFiere, to create an unforgettable in-person return to the leading event in the world for the beauty industry.”
