Written on: March 13, 2020 by SprayTM

Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2020 has been rescheduled for Sept. 3-7 due to emergency decrees by Italy and other countries to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, according to organizer BolognaFiere Cosmoprof SpA.

“Since the beginning of the emergency linked to the outbreak of Coronavirus in Italy on 23 February, we have been constantly monitoring the situation, with the aim of identifying the best solutions to support the cosmetic industry,” said Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere. “The restrictions affecting our country and the limitations on international travels announced by other nations do not currently create the necessary preconditions for the business and networking activities at the basis of a global event such as Cosmoprof.”

“The decision to further postpone the show in September, also based on evident prudential reasons related to the health emergency, is the result of a responsible dialogue with associations and institutions, with the common goal of creating the best scenario for the re-launch of the sector,” added Calzolari.

“Cosmoprof in an international event, which every year attracts over 265,000 operators from 150 countries to Bologna,” said Enrico Zannini, GM of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof SpA. “The actual restrictions are limiting the presence in Italy of buyers, distributors and retailers from the main markets in Europe, Asia and America for the next few months, thus draining the lifeblood of our event as well.”

“Today more than ever we are therefore called to act with responsibility, to protect the investments and production activities of our 3,000 exhibitors and to support the sector,” Zannini continued. “In September, we will work together with beauty companies and operators in the relaunch and development of the industry on a global level.”

Cosmoprof will be held simultaneously with Cosmopack, Cosmo/Perfumery & Cosmetics and Cosmo/Hair Nail & Beauty Salon.
