After cancelling the 2020 edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna due to the Coronavirus pandemic the organisers have announced the 53rd edition of  the international b2b event, will be held from 18 to 22 March 2021. Furthermore, it’s expected that the show will maintain its impressive ability to gather huge numbers of attendees, with over 3,000 companies and 265,000 operators from 150 countries expected in attendance.

“In these months we have never stopped our activities,” says Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere. “To face the forced lockdown, we implemented new business tools to keep giving voice to the excellence and quality of the cosmetic industry. Today a new phase is starting for us: we are working to our show scheduled for next spring, to offer international companies and operators a high-performance and content-rich event, in full compliance with the required safety standards.” 

Enrico Zannini, General Manager of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof agreed, saying, The exhibition in March 2021 will be a fundamental step in our development strategy. We will make our entrance into a new decade proposing cutting-edge initiatives and technologies, which have been implemented thanks to the competence and recognition gained over our 50-year history, to optimise our offer of B2B services. After the first June edition, we will confirm a new appointment of WeCosmoprof, our digital event. Further to that, we are evaluating new collaborations to improve our exhibitors and the international community’s business experience on the show floor. Hard work expects us in the next months, and we are looking forward to welcoming the companies and operators of our network to Bologna. Our goal is to repay them for their trust in our group with a successful and high-quality event, worthy of the Cosmoprof brand.” 

Tickets purchased for the cancelled 2020 conference will be valid for the 2021 event.
