Along with the announcement of relocation to a new venue – Jio World Centre Mumbai – it is with regret that Cosmoprof Bologna Fiere and Informa Markets have had no choice but to postpone the next edition of Cosmoprof India until December 9th -11th 2021, as a consequence of the new Delta variants of Covid19.
The joint press release by BolognaFiere and Informa Markets, organizers of the event, explains that the reasons behind the rescheduling of the second edition of Cosmoprof India were about ensuring a safe experience for stakeholders and exhibitors. The exhibition will be held in a new venue, Jio World Centre in Mumbai: a highly regarded hub for conferences, festivals, and concerts. The synergy between modern architecture and nature is highlighted by the top-level services offered by the structure. Cosmoprof India will be the first beauty trade show held at the hub, welcoming attendees in a safe and stimulating space.
“We are constantly monitoring the spread of Covid19 in India; following local regulations we have decided to postpone Cosmoprof India to December 2021,” explained Mr. Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere. “The exhibition will be the first occasion for brands, buyers, retailers, and wholesalers to meet again after a long time of travel restrictions and social distancing, and to discover how the domestic industry is reacting to new digital tools, revised distribution channels, and new consumers habits. The Jio World Centre Mumbai will add value to the trade show, and we are honoured to be the first beauty trade show to be hosted in their amazing spaces. This is our best way to support the beauty industry in India, promoting its resilience and its commitment for a new restart.”
Speaking on the postponement of the 2nd edition of Cosmoprof India, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India added: “The COVID-19 situation has presented a constantly challenging environment for exhibitions organizers and the beauty and cosmetic industry across the globe. Rescheduling the show to the end of the year at JIO World Centre, an optimal venue, will allow enough time for normality and confidence to return to the marketplace. It will enable us to offer efficient, impressive, and state-of-the-art solutions for our stakeholder’s evolving requirements.”
