  • 70 countries

The Future

“Together with Asia, North America and India, the collaborations in the markets of South America and South East Asia, and after the growth in Europe thanks to the acquisition of the German group Health & Beauty, we are now ready to explore new territories,” said Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere. “All these projects are being put into the reality thanks to the support of the Ministry of Economic Development, ITA-Italian Trade Agency, and our partner Cosmetica Italia-The Italian Trade Agency. For 2020, new projects are being defined both in Asia and in Africa. The Cosmoprof platform is going to become more and more international, to better fulfill the needs of companies in the sector.”

The Impact

“The associated companies attending the event have recorded a significant increase in the quality of contacts with sector operators,” said Renato Ancorotti, president of Cosmetica Italia. “As a consequence, companies have promoted a targeted offer of products and services. The quality and competitiveness of the Italian cosmetic industry on international markets are therefore confirmed again. Not surprisingly, exports, up 3.6% to a value of €4,800 million, continue to support revenues, which exceed €11.2 billion, up 2.1%. These data support the positive figures of the fair declared by by our historic partner BolognaFiere Cosmoprof: together we will continue to promote made in Italy cosmetics in the world.”
