Following the publication of emergency decrees to limit the spread of the coronavirus in Italy, as well as the latest restrictions confirmed by other countries in Europe, Asia and the American continent to limit international travel, BolognaFiere Cosmoprof SpA , the organizer of the event, announced a new postponement of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2020.
"Since the start of the emergency linked to the coronavirus epidemic in Italy on February 23, we have been constantly monitoring the situation, with the aim of identifying the best solutions to support the cosmetics industry, " said Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere. The restrictions affecting our country and the limitations on international travel announced by other countries do not currently create the necessary preconditions for the business and networking activities that underpin a global event like Cosmoprof. The decision to postpone the show to September, also based on obvious reasons of caution linked to the health emergency, is the result of a responsible dialogue with associations and institutions, with the common goal of creating the best scenario for the revival of the sector. "
“The news of the postponement of the 2020 edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna to June dates from February 24, but the evolution of the emergency linked to the Covid-19 epidemic has made it necessary to further rethink the period of the event . Following a series of comparisons and analyzes of the needs of companies and operators, we understand and approve the decision taken by our partner BolognaFiere to reschedule the event for September. Trade fair and industry must act together, the event which will represent one of the crucial stages in the relaunch of the sector in the post-coronavirus phase, commented Renato Ancorotti, President of Cosmetica Italia. In the near future, Cosmetica Italia will embody even more the values of a key sector for our country and a flagship of made in Italy . It would be a success to see our companies confirm their presence at this extraordinary September edition, the most important event in the world for the beauty industry. "
Over the next few months, BolognaFiere Cosmoprof will devote its attention to the reorganization of planned activities and commercial initiatives, in order to guarantee companies and operators a quality edition of Cosmoprof.
