Organisers of leading beauty trade show Cosmoprof have delayed the 2022 edition of the show by several weeks. 

The leading global event was originally meant to take place at the beginning of March 2022 but has been moved to April 28 – May 2, 2022 in order to facilitate in-person attendance for international visitors.

The delay will enable show organisers to work with experts, trend agencies and market analysts to develop a ‘rich schedule full of content and initiatives’, and, according to BolognaFiere Cosmoprof general manager Enrico Zannini, organise a programme of hospitality and specific services – backed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and the Extraordinary Plan for the Promotion of Made in Italy initiative – to top retailers and buyers. 

Taking place at the BolognaFiere Centre in Bologna, Italy, the show will cover all aspects of the professional beauty industry across three core areas: CosmoPack; Cosmo Perfumery & Cosmetics; and Cosmo Hair, Nail & Beauty Salon. It is expected to host more than 2,700 exhibitors from around the world. 

“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,” said Zannini. 

“By postponing the 2022 edition [of the show] to 28 April – 2 May, we can help operators better organise their visit to the show.”

Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere, said: “The decision to postpone the event further, albeit painful, is the result of a responsible dialogue with our platers, in order to facilitate the presence of international operators, who can therefore organise the visit to Bologna with greater ease and live their return to Cosmoprof with greater serenity.”

“The 2022 edition of Cosmoprof must be a real support to the cosmetic industry: it’s 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 and all buyers and distributors who follow our initiatives to develop their business,” he added. 

Renato Ancorotti, president of Cosmetica Italia, added: “The cosmetic industry keeps showing its resilience, facing changes without giving up the distinctive feature of its products, which are highly regarded for their quality and for combining innovation with creativity, a typical feature of the Italian know-how. This is an approach that the cosmetic sector has always used a nd it still does, while facing a new reorganization in response to the postponement of the 53rd edition of Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna.” 

“Flexibility in production, investments in research, long-term vision, timely response to the changes in purchasing attitudes, new procurement methods are just some of the initiatives implemented by our companies to cope with the global constraints imposed by the pandemic. These are also the reasons why the entire national cosmetic sector will be ready, alongside the longstanding partner BolognaFiere, to create an unforgettable in-person return to the leading event in the world for the beauty industry.”
