Cosmoprof has announced the postponement of two of its events. The Cosmoprof North America event, previously scheduled for next June, has announced it will take place August 29-31, 2021 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna will take place May 27-31, 2021, rescheduled from March.
Cosmoprof North America will bring back its three macro-sector divisions to facilitate the visit of qualified attendees.
Cosmetics and personal care will host finished products for skin care, personal care, fragrances, and organic and natural beauty.
Cosmopack will welcome leading companies for the supply chain, with solutions for developers interested in creating their brand or for R&D managers looking for innovative packaging formulas or solutions.
Professional beauty is the section dedicated to the professional channel, with hair care, accessories, and furnishings for hair salons and spas, of specific interest for local and international distributors.
Cosmopack Bologna will open its doors from May 27 to 30 to perfumery and body care proposals for the retail, prestige, and masstige channels. From May 28-31, Cosmo hair, nail and beauty salon will host companies and operators of finished products, equipment, furnishings, and services for the professional world of hair, nail, and beauty/spa.
Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere, said, "Given the unpredictable number of COVID-19 infections in recent months, and the consequent restrictive measures adopted not only in Italy, but all over the world, we have deemed it essential to have a new schedule. Participating in Cosmoprof involves a significant investment by our companies and operators, and we must work to ensure an event in line with the prestige that has accompanied our brand for more than 50 years."
Cosmetica Italia president, Renato Ancorotti said, "Being the voice of a key sector for the country system is a pride and a responsibility, made even more complex by an emergency that does not spare the cosmetics industry. Our commitment, as well as of the approximately 600 companies represented by our association, is even more deep today, as we are conscious of how much personal hygiene and cosmetic products represent a fundamental asset against the pandemic. Our collaboration with Cosmoprof was once again decisive in identifying the best solution in order to plan a successful edition, while ensuring the safety of operators and visitors."
Enrico Zannini, general manager of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof SpA said, “Cosmoprof North America has recorded constant growth from edition to edition: for this reason, we must evaluate all possible solutions to offer a quality event. The Cosmoprof format has adapted over the years to the needs of the North American market, with dynamic and creative initiatives specific to the new communication and distribution channels that find fertile ground in the United States. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure all attendees the best conditions for a professional experience in total serenity and safety, in line with the peculiarities of the exhibition.”
Steve Sleeper, executive director of the Professional Beauty Association, said, “As with BolognaFiere Cosmoprof SpA’s position, it’s imperative to the Professional Beauty Association that the best and safest, experience is provided at Cosmoprof North America. We are dedicated to producing a compelling, engaging event worth waiting for in the safest environment possible that mirrors government recommendations.”
