While hair and beauty trade fairs in Europe continue to be optimistic about going ahead in the Autumn, the ongoing situation in Hong Kong means there’ll be a further rescheduling of the event.
Scheduled to be held on 17-19 November 2021 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Cosmoprof Asia 25th edition will move to 16 – 18 November 2022. The Organisers (Bologna Fiere and Informa Markets) justify the hard choice by saying:” …considering the on-going uncertainty associated with the pandemic, and travel restrictions still being in place, the Organisers, in consultation with customers and industry stakeholders, decided to host the show in 2022, when international trade and business are expected to return and participants can enjoy the high-quality event they have come to expect”.
In the meantime, Cosmoprof Asia will keep in touch with industry players with another of its already successful Digital events. From 8th to 16th November 2021, Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week will offer a match-making platform for buyers and sellers to interact with companies, view new product launches, place orders, meet clients and potential customers, and stay up to date on beauty trends and technology in 2021/2022.
Antonio Bruzzone, General Manager of BolognaFiere Group and Director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd, said: “Such a tough decision to move the date of the in-person event aims to guarantee safety and proper business conditions to our international exhibitors and operators. For more than two decades, Cosmoprof Asia has gathered under one roof companies, buyers, retailers, and distributors from all over the world, who are interested in new opportunities in the fastest-growing markets of the APAC region. Our stakeholders deserve a highly performing exhibition during these tumultuous times.”
“We believe this is the best decision for both exhibitors and visitors,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President – Asia of Informa Markets and Director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd. “We are 100% committed to delivering a high-quality event that will offer true value to all participants. We want all our attendees to feel safe and comfortable when returning to the show in 2022.”
