The organisers of In-Cosmetics Asia have announced that the 2011 edition of the personal care ingredients event will be held from the 14th to 16th December in Bangkok. The postponement of the show from its initial dates in November was announced last week in the face of heavy monsoon rain that has left northern and central areas of Thailand flooded.
According to Reed Exhibitions, although at the time central Bangkok and the exhibition venue were unaffected, there was huge disruption to movement around the capital and the outlying areas, thus compromising the successful organisation of the event.
“Due to the current crisis in Thailand, we had no option but to postponeIn-Cosmetics Asia because, as organisers, we were unable to guarantee the delivery of a quality exhibition. Having reached the decision to move the dates, we are now working closely with our exhibitors and visitors to deliver a successful event in December 2011. We are also very keen to keep the show in Thailand and help support the local economy and our thoughts at this time are with the families of those living in regions affected by the crisis,” said Event director Sarah Gibson.
Also initially scheduled from October 31 to November 02, the 21st IFSCC Conference has been postponed too. The organising committee said new dates will be proposed as soon as possible
