Alas, also Thailand has had to sign up to the unenviable list of countries where conditions are not yet suitable for Beauty Fairs to be held in 2020. Nevertheless, the organisers are offering exhibitors and visitors the chance to participate in the online Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week event, running from 9th to 13th November 2020.
We were really hoping at least one of the many Cosmoprof Exhibitions around the world would make it in 2020. But this is just not the right year for trade fairs and the inevitable decision has now been broadcast. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organisers of Cosmoprof CBE ASEAN – Informa Markets, China Beauty Expo (CBE) and BolognaFiere – have had to reschedule the first edition of the event to September 2021, to be held at the IMPACT Convention and Exhibition Centre in Bangkok, Thailand.
Although in Thailand there have not been any confirmed Covid cases for many days, the government has kept the immigration procedure pretty complicated, with mandatory quarantine for all guests arriving from other countries. This would limit the regular running of a trade show such as Cosmoprof CBE ASEAN.
So, there was no other decision but to postpone, in order to guarantee exhibitors and operators a productive business experience matching their expectations.
“Cosmoprof CBE ASEAN is the first event that brings together international stakeholders on the one hand, and producers and operators from Southeast Asia on the other, to evaluate the economic potential of this market, which is still unexplored,” says Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere. “The importance of this event for our entire community requires us to take the necessary measures to ensure a high quality and safe experience, with the same prestige characterizing the Cosmoprof brand in the world.”
In the meantime. Cosmoprof CBE ASEAN has plans to support the industry in the coming months. In fact, exhibiting companies and local buyers will be able to participate in the first-ever Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week, scheduled to be held online from 9th to 13th November. This presents a unique opportunity for companies to tap into Cosmoprof Asia’s international database and expand their businesses.
Mr. David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets says “Cosmoprof Asia welcomes all exhibitors and buyers of Cosmoprof CBE ASEAN to join our first ever Digital Week, offering massive business matching opportunities for the global beauty industry. All participants are encouraged to leverage the resources and platform of this special initiative to develop concrete business relationship with our beauty community and exhibiting companies.”
