Reed Exhibitions has announced (5 November) that its in-cosmetics Global show will now take place in Fira Barcelona, 5-7 October 2021 and not on the original April dates.
Roziani Zulkifli, exhibition director at Reed Exhibitions, said: “After consulting with exhibitors and key stakeholders, we recognise that in order to hold an international event there needs to be more time to allow for the reopening of borders and lifting of travel restrictions. It is clear that the industry needs to meet in person later in 2021. Large-scale events are subject to ever-changing national and local guidelines and regulations. Our priority is to deliver an engaging and Covid-secure face-to-face event with combined virtual solutions in October as we are able, one that gives our exhibitors and visitors the additional time to adapt and continue on the path to recovery."
in-cosmetics Global is the largest global event bringing together cosmetic manufacturers and suppliers of ingredients. iand has been running for the last 30 years.
"We are confident that this decision best supports the industry, and in October we will be ready to regroup and look ahead to the future," Zulkifli added.
"Even though we have been unable to hold the live exhibition in 2020, it has been exciting to step into the digital world. We held five virtual events over the past seven months and the virtual in-cosmetics Formulation Summit coming up, 17-19 November 2020, will focus on formulation in the climate change age and we will not be stopping there. Our current priority is on keeping the industry connected during this time.”
