Organisers BolognaFiere Group and Informa Markets have announced they are relocating Cosmoprof Asia from Hong Kong to Singapore for what they term ‘a special edition’ in 2022. The show will run 16-18 November 2022 at Singapore Expo.
This decision was made after extensive discussions with business leaders, exhibitors and partners and comes as no big surprise given the current entry restrictions for travellers to Hong Kong. The lack of certainty of any easing is likely to mean potential disruption to both exhibitors and visitors, as inbound travel to Hong Kong remains subject to quarantine restrictions.
Asia’s premier beauty event which has traditional strong support from the world’s leading cosmetics suppliers for the past 25 years will, however, organisers say, continue its mission of connecting the beauty industry in the Asia-Pacific Region. The show dates, 16-18 November, remain the same.
“The APAC region remains a crucial reference for global economics, and Cosmoprof Asia is continuing its growth in the area,” said Antonio Bruzzone, general manager of BolognaFiere Group and director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd. “In 2022, Singapore is the best location to welcome stakeholders and professionals again, offering a not-to-be-missed experience to do business in person”.
Cosmoprof Asia and Cosmopack Asia 2022 will take place at Singapore Expo.
“This special edition of Cosmoprof Asia in Singapore will figure as the most important gathering of international beauty stakeholders, supplier and buyers since our last edition in 2019,” said David Bondi, senior vice-president – Asia of Informa Markets and director of Cosmoprof Asia Ltd. “Our proactive decision to relocate the fair from Hong Kong to Singapore shows our determination to help the industry to reconnect in 2022. We are confident in Singapore’s strong reputation as a preferred destination for business events, and look forward to welcoming our delegates from around the world in the Lion City this November.”
While waiting to meet each other face-to-face in November 2022, Cosmoprof Asia’s beauty community will have the opportunity to participate to the virtual event Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week, from 27 June to 5 July 2022, a match-making platform for buyers and sellers to consolidate and facilitate business connections.
