The 53rd edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna has been rescheduled to 28th April to 2nd May 2022 in order to facilitate the in-person attendance of international operators, announced BolognaFiere yesterday. The event was originally scheduled from 10th to 14th March 2022.

More than 2,700 exhibitors

The 2022 edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna must be a real support to the cosmetic industry: it is our duty towards the more than 2,700 exhibiting companies confirmed to date, the institutions and associations that continue to make us feel their support, all buyers and distributors who follow our initiatives to develop their business. The decision to postpone the event further to April 28 - May 2, albeit painful, is the result of a responsible dialogue with our players, in order to facilitate the presence of international operators, who can therefore organize the visit to Bologna with greater ease and live their return to Cosmoprof with greater serenity”, explained Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere.

We want Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2022 to be accessible to as many operators as possible: this is our contribution to the revitalization of the industry," added Enrico Zannini, General Manager of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof.

Esxence et Experience Lab rescheduled

For the same reasons, the organizers of Esxence, the international event dedicated to artistic perfumery, and Experience Lab, dedicated to niche and excellence beauty, that are organized simultaneously at the Milano Convention Centre (MiCo), have announced the trade shows will take place from 15th to 18th June 2022. Both events were originally scheduled to be held from 17th to 20th March 2022.

Other events, such as Paris Packaging Week, have also recently been postponed. Given the health situation across Europe and North America, it is not excluded that other postponements will be announced, further burdening the trade show agenda from May to July 2022.
