The event continues to grow, and the results confirm that the event is a landmark event for the entire beauty industry.
“Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2019 has achieved an important goal, with over 265,000 cosmetic industry operators, with a percentage increase in visitors from abroad of about 10% – declares Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere – This data, together with the exhibitor record – 3,033 companies from over 70 countries – makes us proud of the results obtained, and gives us the energy to face new projects. From Bologna, Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna gets to reach the whole world, with events on all continents. After Asia, North America and India, after the holdings in the markets of South America and South East Asia, and after the development in Europe thanks to the acquisition of the German group Health & Beauty, we are now ready to widen the frontiers, thanks also to the support from the Ministry of Economic Development, ICE – Italian Trade Agency, and our partner, Cosmetica Italia. For 2020 new projects are being defined both in Asia and in Africa. The Cosmoprof platform is going to become more and more widespread, to better respond to the needs of companies in the sector “.
“The associated companies present at the event – comments Renato Ancorotti, president of Cosmetica Italia – have recorded a significant increase in the quality of contacts with sector operators. To respond to this trend, companies have promoted an increasingly targeted offer of products and services. The inelastic nature and competitiveness of the Italian cosmetic industry on international markets are therefore confirmed again. Not surprisingly, exports, up 3.6% to a value of 4,800 million euros, continue to support revenues, which exceed 11.2 billion euros, up 2.1%. Data that support the equally positive figures of the fair promoted by our historic partner BolognaFiere – Cosmoprof: together we will continue to share the objective of promoting made in Italy cosmetics in the world ”.
THEMES AND TRENDS THAT HAVE COME OUT OF THE EVENT
In the days when the whole world stopped to celebrate Earth Day, Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna 2019 turned the spotlight on the importance of embarking on a new path for the industry, with greater attention to sustainability, energy saving and the correct use of environmental resources.
The initiatives in the event, like NO. CO. – NO COMPROMISE, the installation of The Cosmopack Factory project, the contents expressed during the Cosmotalks and installations with sustainable materials have highlighted the attention that the event has given to the environment. The attendance at the more than 30 talks scheduled at the Service Center and the interest exercised by the special areas dedicated to the green theme well represent the choice shared by the operators and companies in the sector.
